The branding for Michelle and Kevin's big day started with the couple's unique Chicago save the dates. Many of their wedding guests traveled from out-of-town for their wedding. So for the couple's save the dates, we decided on a tri-fold design to accommodate all of their travel information. The tri-fold design also allowed us to highlight their custom wedding monogram (printed prominently on the front) and their adorable Chicago engagement pictures!
Since a majority of the couple's guests were from out of town, Michelle and Kevin decided they wanted a swanky wedding website, that coordinated with their save the date (of course)! All of the travel information and accommodation's were available on their website, making it easy for out of town guests to make their arrangements. It also included a link to their wedding blog, a photo gallery, and even information on their bridal party!
When it came time to design their Chicago wedding invitations, the couple knew they wanted to keep design pretty traditional but with a modern twist! So their wedding invitation was printed in gray letterpress (which is both classic and beautiful), and included unique accents like gray edge painting and a patterned bellyband. The entire invitation ensemble was sealed with their wedding monogram!
Michelle and Kevin's elegant programs were printed in gray thermography and featured their new married wedding monogram on the front! We finished the elegant booklet with a blush satin bow!
To properly welcome their guests to the Windy City, we helped Michelle and Kevin create Chicago wedding welcome boxes. Their boxes contained goodies like hangover kits, hotel door signs, Garrett's Chicago mix popcorn, a little bottle of Heinz Ketchup, two custom cookies paying tribute to the couple's favorite NFL teams, and a bottle of champagne with monogrammed cups. Talk about swanky! Each box was wrapped with blush ribbon and was finished with a monogrammed sticker.
In addition to the rest of their wedding swag, we also helped the couple brand their wedding reception with round menus, cocktail napkins, coasters, and social media signs!
A beautiful Chicago wedding for one of our favorite couples! Congrats to Michelle and Kevin (who just celebrated their first anniversary this past summer)!!
