The Bride Brands the Wedding

In the year 2016 almost everything is branded. There’s personal branding, business branding, and now wedding branding. Brides are setting up a website and having a logo designed for their special day.

Now, I feel like a bit of a pioneer when it comes to this topic, as I designed a logo for my husband’s 40th birthday to be used on party favors, years ago. But, I wish I was a better designer or that the internet existed back when we got married, but I digress…

Wedding logos or monograms can add a special touch of personalization that can be used even beyond the wedding day. You could use it to order personalized home goods, stationary, cute “his” and “hers” t-shirts to announce to the world that you are newlyweds. If I were to design a logo for a couple that wants to use their logo after the wedding, I would suggest that they not include the wedding date, or change it to “established”, “since” or “founded in…”.

With local and online printers offering digital printing, its convenient and inexpensive to get almost anything customized.

Update: I recently learned that our wedding monogram designs were being used for gobos* that are projected on the wall behind the head table or on the dance floor.

*A gobo (or GOBO) is a physical stencil or template that is placed inside or in front of a light source, to control the shape of the emitted light. A metal gobo with patterned holes allows only the desired shape or pattern of light through, casting a specific pattern of light and shadow into the space.
