How to Brand Your Wedding with Personal Themes and Color Schemes

“Branding” your wedding extends far beyond creating a hashtag. “Many couples are now establishing the theme for their wedding starting with their save the dates and carrying it through to the reception with items like napkins, matchstick boxes, straws, popcorn bags, or to-go bags for the cookie table,” says Amy Bass, co-owner of Nota Bene. “It’s all about creating a ‘brand.’” Although this is easier said than done, consistency is key, so stick with one color scheme and motif that you feel will best portray the tone you want to set for the day. Logos and monograms are another element to consider, as they help bring the whole picture together. Not sure where to begin? Peruse a selection of themes from the fine paper boutique, here. — Liz Petoniak
