Before I ramble on with my own experience, I want to tell you what she can do you for you, the bride & groom. Now, before you carry on reading, please note that I don’t know anyone else in Dubai who does this, so it really is something that’s new and exciting for all of the brides-to-be in the UAE. OK you can read now…♥
I am very excited to be sharing Natalie’s designs with you. She is the lady behind Elizabeth Andres, and like me, has a serious obsession with weddings. A few months ago I went to Natalie looking for some design advice for My Lovely Wedding, and after updating my header and overall design, she has become my brand identity go-to-girl.
Wedding Branding by Elizabeth Andres.
A custom logo and wedding identity is a great foundation any well-styled wedding, no different than the corporate identity of business. Some brides want a specialized theme and some just want a bit of help combining the right colors, textures, and patterns.
Not sure how to word this, but it’s like an “easy” button for wedding styling. I put together a brand board and a monogram/logo and the couple can take the branding board to their wedding planner, florist, photographer, etc. so that everyone understands what the mood, feel, and aesthetics of the event should look like. Telling someone your wedding is a “classic white and gold” could be interpreted in many different ways by different vendors. If you have photos, color swatches, and images of your fonts and design elements, it makes your vendor’s job easier to understand exactly what you want.
Your logo and brand elements can be used in many ways to maintain a cohesive style for the reception…save the dates, wedding website, wedding invitation, thank you stationery, printed dinner napkins, favor tags, menus, table numbers, gift packaging, a custom painted aisle runner, even your lighting specialist can use your logo to light it up on the wall or dance floor.
–Wedding websites are great for the expat couple who oftentimes are having “destination” weddings or majority of their guests have to travel. You can even have it password protected to only allow those access who have received the password (on the save the date or invitation). By having a budget for a wedding website, you won’t need to create as complicated of an invitation, with different cards for the reception, rsvp, traveling, accommodations, map, and other details. It can all be accessible on the website. The amount of info you can fit on a website far exceeds that of small invitation card.
– My basic package for a custom wedding logo or monogram includes a professional inspiration board, branding guidelines board, and three logo concepts with three revisions on your favorite concept. Price for the basic package is 740 AED ($200 USD).
