A Distinct Wedding Through Personalization
As you plan your wedding this year, chances are many of your friends and family members are planning their weddings as well. Approximately 3 million weddings take place every year in the United States. How can you make your wedding stand out from the rest? Here are some ideas:
Idea #1: Wedding Logos
Brand your wedding in a sophisticated and unique way. Forget the stale initialed monograms of yesteryear, instead create interesting wedding logos. Similar to company logos, your logo will represent your wedding. You can hire a graphics designer to design one for you with a symbol of where or when your wedding will take place. For example, you can put the Space Needle if you are getting married in Seattle, or you can put Jack-O-Lanterns if you are getting married near Halloween. Afterwards place your initials, wedding date, or even your names — whatever your hearts desire. You can have your logo professionally stenciled onto an aisle runner, spotlighted unto the dance floor/wall using a gobo projector, or even have it carved on a pumpkin. And by imprinting them on all your wedding stationery (such as the program cover, menu, wine bottle label, thank you card, etc.), you can tie all the elements of your wedding together with your wedding logo.
Idea #2: Concert Tickets
Announce your special event with customized concert tickets! There are many specialty printers on the internet that print tickets using an actual thermal printer like the ones used to create authentic concert tickets. Have them customize the tickets to create cool save-the-date announcements. Or use the tickets as creative invitations to your wedding, engagement party, rehearsal dinner, “day after” brunch, bachelorette party, or bachelor party just to name a few.
Numbers can be handwritten on the back or on the perforated side. That way you can use the personalized concert tickets as your RSVP cards by having the guests tear the right side of the ticket and mailing it back to you! Or have your guests hand them in when they arrive at the bridal shower or wedding reception at which point their tickets become lottery tickets for special door prizes.
Idea #3: Wedding Labels and Hang Tags
Packaging for wedding favors is usually bland and blank. Make them pop with custom wedding labels and hang tags. Available at many stationery stores or even office supply stores, personalized labels are available in many styles. Pick one that closely matches your style and wedding color palette, then personalize further with your names, wedding date, a personal message or even the previously mentioned wedding logo.
