The colour of the wedding was clear from the beginning, because my wife Aneta loves violet colour. But violet colour is not always the same, so we kept using a pattern book and tried to find everything in the same violet hue. It was therefore necessary to create a violet logo and apply it to everything.
Even if the wedding is not just a kiss during the ceremony, I found it interesting to incorporate it into the logo. It's one of the situations which wedding guests are waiting for. I had drawn Aneta's profile a thousand times, so it was not a difficult task. But my self-portrait was a bit more complicated. My photograph helped me with the drawing.
I had to solve another issue. Both of us have long hair, which could result in the confusion of wedding quests with dioptres not being able to differentiate the bride from the groom. That is why Aneta got a rose into her hair.
The outside invitation card with the logo was glued onto the inside, purple invitation card. Both cards were glued by silicone adhesive dots, which proved to be a good choice with the amount of invitations sent. Otherwise I would still be gluing them. For the guests invited to the wedding reception, another invitation card was glued inside.
The dominant feature of our wedding website was the logo with the wedding day countdown clock. This was followed by the information about the weddings venue, reception and the wedding day timeline.
If wedding guests were bored during our wedding and wanted to have a break from the general merriment, they could read the wedding newspaper. Wedding newspaper is very often filled up with repetitive fillers – e.g. a horoscope for newlyweds. I could not avoid these fillers either. The original idea was to create the newspaper as a comic book with life stories of newlyweds. Because it was very time-consuming, I finally created only one comic strip – our first encounter.
There was a big, empty and ugly board in the lobby of the chateau greenhouse, where our wedding reception took place. At the last moment I created several A2 posters. They were supposed to attract wedding guests to the highlights of the wedding day and evening.
