Branding a Wedding | Monograms | A Wedding Project

When owning a business, a logo is so important. It brands your businesses identity.  I think that a wedding identity is no exception.  A future bride and groom spend a year or more planning for everything to be perfect. It has the couples own personal touches. What they love… the colors, the details, the cake, the flowers.  A wedding monogram is a great way to brand your identity as a couple.  Designing monograms is one of my favorite things to do.  The bride and groom can take the simple design and place it on so many elements throughout their wedding day.  Monograms can go on programs, bags, favors, the dance floor, the isle, the cake topper… the list can go on and on.   A monogram really is great for a DIY bride.  If you don’t have access to design your own monogram or reach out locally, there are TONS of graphic designers and vendors on the world wide web. Below are some sample monograms I did for my happy couples and some examples of how they used them!

It starts with a basic design… just black and white, no frills.

Once my couples lock down a design they love, I add some color! Here are some samples of how they used their monograms!

All items below, except the CD labels, were printed by Minuteman Press of Fredericksburg! Check them out here and here!
