Branding your wedding is a great way to show off your creativity and officially introduce you and your fiancé as one. From custom one of a kind stationery to having a signature beverage in your wedding color palette, a perfectly branded wedding will surely create an experience you and your guests will never forget.
It’s all in the details!
Personalizing your special day by incorporating a family crest or monogram is a great way to brand your wedding.
Dating back to the Middle Ages, crests, or coat of arms, were used as a way for spectators to identify knights participating in competitions. These symbols went on to represent families and were passed from one generation to the next. Incorporating your family crest in your wedding décor is a great way to pay respects to family members who have passed and make your family members feel included.
Does Your Family Have a Crest?
By conducting a bit of research, you can determine whether there is a crest registered in either of your families’ name. One note to remember when conducting your research: historically, a family’s crest is known to follow that of the male bloodline. Therefore, you should begin with interviewing the fathers, grandfathers, and any other patriarchal figures in your families.
An alternative to a family crest, if your family does not own one, is to have a custom symbol designed special for you and your fiancé. Perhaps use this momentous occasion to begin a new tradition.
Represent your union by incorporating a custom monogram that joins the initial of you and your fiancé’s first names with the initial of the last name you will share in the center. Monograms add a touch of elegance and sophistication to the overall vibe of your wedding and can be an added detail on anything from the invitation and cocktail napkins, to the dancefloor vinyl and wedding cake topper. Monograms can even be carried over to the décor in the home you will share.
Remember, the details of any wedding are what create lasting impressions. Whether you choose to brand your wedding with a crest, custom symbol or monogram be intentional and thoughtful about how you use them.
