We are in love with the idea of "branding" a wedding. It is so much fun and such a special project for us to come up with a wedding monogram that really speaks of who the couple is, something that reflects their unique personalities and special story - what makes them them. The great thing about a really unique wedding monogram is that it can become a family crest of sorts... even being carried through the years and used on special occasions, perhaps even adding children's initials as your family grows!
A wedding monogram can be used in all sorts of ways, on a save-the-date, invitation, and carried through all the wedding stationery. It can be printed on favor tags, cocktail napkins, (LOVE!) and even as a light shone on the dance floor or a wall at the reception (trés chic!).
A wedding monogram doesn't have to be used on absolutely everything... in fact, we have found that it can work equally well as the main piece of art or as a classy detail. For example, you may have a damask theme running through your printed materials, but use your monogram as a seal for the envelope, on a card in gift baskets for out-of-town guests, on cocktail napkins, and as a dance floor light image. That way it works as a special and sophisticated detail but is not overly matchy-matchy. Your guests are sure to be impressed!
Erica and Timothy had a very formal black and white wedding and used their wedding monogram to adorn their wedding invitation set, program, place cards, menu, and table numbers.
Christy and Michael are planning a beach wedding in San Diego, California and have a seashell theme running through their wedding stationery. We created this logo for them and they will be using it on a cuff around their invitation, on their custom stamps, and on gift tags for their favors.
Adam and Rachel wanted a very simple but graphic monogram that they could use in the upper left corner of all their wedding stationery and day-of details. We used a strong, serif A for Adam's initial and a fancier "girly" script for Rachel's initial. They used it in their wedding colors, alternating the logo in plum and orange.
