wedding branding, we say yes!

Weddings have entered a new dimension. Today’s weddings are a couple’s ultimate opportunity to define their style in tandem.  My favorite part of any and all weddings are the details.  In my opinion, the truly great weddings are not the big-budget ones, they are the ones planned and executed to perfection with a fabulous attention to detail. I’m a firm believer that every wedding should be branded! Yep, that’s what I said… branded!  And by “branded” I mean incorporating an image and/or graphic that instantly relates to your wedding.
You have a vision of a wedding in the early summer, on Saturday morning because you’ll be getting ready when the dew is fresh on the ground and the birds are chirping in the trees.  And then it clicks… birds.  It’s the perfect motif to carry through.  And your chapel is blue, so you’re running with that color scheme.  But think about what good branding means. Brands are symbols, nothing more or less.  Now the catch to the motif is that you must be selective in how you use it.  Overuse, and it looks cheesy.  Underuse, and people won’t “get” it.  Therefore, not every element should contain birds, but enough should so that the event is cohesive. Your save the date or invitation is the first thing that people see of your wedding so it’s certain that you want to incorporate your motif there.
Because everything your guest sees is important (you are, after all, branding your wedding), it’s also important to use the same font(s) on every piece of printed material.  Pick them early, use them always, and never stray.  The font is one of the pieces that few notice when it’s right, but many will notice if it’s wrong.
The benefits of having a personal brand for your wedding are two fold, 1. It keeps you excited about planning your wedding and coming up with new, creative ways to incorporate your brand and 2. Your guests will absolutely LOVE IT!
