If you are like me, you look for all sorts of ways you can add your unique personality to your wedding day. For me it was everything from the reason we chose our wedding colors to the individual flowers that went in my bouquet. Creating a wedding logo that takes all of these personal elements and wraps it up into one defining symbol that will forever represent your wedding day.
What is a wedding logo and do you need one?
A wedding logo is the essence of your love story brought to life! Think of how the fonts you pick for your invitation help define the style of your wedding. A logo does that as well, but gives you so much more! It becomes a symbol that perfectly reflects you, your love, and your wedding day.
So, do you really need a wedding logo? Well, let me ask you this, “Are you unique? Is your love story one-of-a-kind?” If you answered yes, then you definitely need a wedding logo!
What makes a great wedding logo?
A great wedding logo starts with you! Here are some places you can draw inspiration from your wedding to use as the base for your unique logo design:
- Your personality. If you are a modern bride, your logo will most likely be sleek and sophisticated, whereas if you are a glamorous bride, your logo might be more ornate with a dramatic flair.
- What you love to do with your fiancé. Maybe you love stargazing, are big movie buffs, outdoor enthusiasts, or even foodies. Whatever it is that you love to do, think about how it fits into your wedding day. If you are incorporating this element of your love story into your wedding (i.e. bringing in amazing food trucks or having a glamorous Hollywood themed reception) then you should definitely include elements of this into your wedding logo.
- Where you are getting married. If you are getting married someplace that has extra special meaning to you, this is a fantastic element to include in your logo. I recently created a wedding logo for a couple that was getting married on the lake where they grew up. (Theirs is the gorgeous black pocket invitation above) The lake meant so much to them and their entire wedding day was designed around the gorgeous setting. It made perfect sense to use the outline of the lake as the base of their wedding logo. We used the logo everywhere! It was featured on their save the dates, invitations, programs, and even pizza boxes at their reception. The best part? Their guests LOVED it!
- The look of your wedding day. There is so much inspiration for your logo that can come from this! One of my biggest projects was for a destination wedding in Cabo San Lucas. My bride was looking for something super unique that combined her love of the flower of life pattern with her elegant style and gorgeous location. Her one-of-a-kind vision resulted in a design that was absolutely jaw dropping! I designed a custom logo that featured both their monogram and the flower of life pattern. Just like the flower of life, their logo changed and grew depending on the piece we were using it on. We even pulled patterns and design elements from it. The end result was so personal and unique, something never seen before. (Below)
Where can I use my awesome wedding logo?
The great part about your wedding logo is that you can use it EVERYWHERE! It can be incorporated into all of your paper pieces, your reception décor, and can even be used long after your wedding! Use your logo anywhere you interact with your guests as it creates such a memorable experience for them (and you too!)
