A wedding logo is a unique symbol, a Wedding Monogram that represents your union and your new life as a couple. It’s a great way to bring coherence to your theme and everything that flows from it. Wedding logos are often made of a combination of the initials of the bride and groom, to which is sometimes added a pictogram or other graphic element.
If the term logo is rather modern, the concept is not. Centuries ago, families and important people already used symbols to represent themselves. The first register of heraldic crest seems to be on the Bayeux tapestry, dating back to the 11th century. In the Middle Ages, the shields of the warriors were decorated specifically for each of them. Some blazons have been passed from generation to generation after them as a proud symbol of family heritage.
Monograms and other letter combinations have also been in fashion for some time, especially among royal families. It was the Victorians, however, who actually started the trend of monograms, even raging a writer of the time who was then wondering if the followers of the monogram mania would go so far as to tattoo their logo on forehead…
Nowadays, wedding logos fall into two broad categories: timeless or temporal. The timeless symbolize the union of the couple. There are many monograms and blazon-type designs in this category. It can also be a very good alternative to the common name (20 % of married women keep their maiden name). Temporal logos are more focused on marriage itself. They can complement the theme chosen for the ceremony or capture the portrait of the bride and groom at this time of their life together.
