The puzzle itself is customized for you and your future spouse! I will create a crossword game from the clues & answers you write and provide to me. I will also include your photos, names, colors, and wedding date. Other information can be included too — just ask!
Here are just a FEW ideas of some crossword clues to get your started:
- city where you met
- location of your first date
- how many years you’ve been together
- name of the best man or maid of honor
- where you got engaged
- flavor of the wedding cake
… the possibilities are endless!

THE CONTENT INCLUDES:

- Names and wedding date
- List of answers (upside down on the back side)
- Colors can be customized to your wedding colors
- One photo of the couple to go on the back side, with the puzzle answers.
- One photo to serve as the background of your crossword puzzle. You can use the ocean pic in the example, or provide one of your own. Since the puzzle will be overlaid on top of it, general scenery/nature photos work best.
We can also explore stock photo options if you’re looking for a particular background image. Additional cost is generally $11-$33, but depends on the photo.
- Place your order by choosing the desired print quantity and options above.
- Fill out the questionnaire with your custom text and photos. You can also email the info to me if you prefer.
- Photos: I will need one photo of the couple, plus one ‘background’ photo to use behind the crossword. You can also use the ocean background in my example. Photos must be high resolution for print — large file sizes.
All text and crossword questions and answers are written by you. I can provide a list of example crossword questions to help you with the process.
