    These are awesome! Is there a way to get a template without the swirls on it? It doesn’t quite go with my theme for my wedding but I love the template otherwise with the cute thanks for celebrating idea on the back!

      Hi Danielle

      Unfortunately the design is unable to be altered as it is kindly produced by the designer in full.

    LOVE this! I have a silly question… How do I edit the PDF to add the names? 😛 Thank you!

      Hi there Alesha! You should be able to add the names in using the second link in the tutorial, with the fill names option! The first link allows you to write names in, but not type them! I hope this works for you! x Ms Rose

    Is there a way to change the font color? I love these but our theme is blues.

      You may have some luck if you know anybody who’s a little bit handy with Photoshop or similar editing software.
      Another hack is to put blue/cyan ink in the black slot when printing though you have less colour control (don’t forget to run the printer’s cleaning program before and after)

      Otherwise the easiest thing to do may simply be printing on blue paper and leaving the font black.

      Good luck!

    Can you make these using the full page to eliminate cutting? 4 to a page? Also, can you indicate the meal selection on the back side?

    • Ms Fleur De Lys says:

      Hi there Carol. There’s no reason why not! However, you will have to get a bit creative with your chosen photo editing software to position the design as you like it before printing.

    Are meal icon fonts included??

    • Ms Fleur De Lys says:
      September 5, 2018 at 1:23 pm

      Hi there Natalie,

      Thanks for your question. What you see is what you get!

      You could photoshop your own meal icons into the design before printing however, if you’re handy.
