Logo for wedding websites

this is a continuation of the previous horrid excuses for logos (rsvp, etc)...

to those who arent familiar, its a logo for a service that designs websites for brides to showcase their wedding information (wedding party, dinner menu, maps, etc)

I have to say that RSVP was the best idea so far - it was very close to a nice logo. I don't get "WeddingWebsNOLA" - it sounds like it's supposed to be "catchy", but it's not (imho). This logo will be hard to reproduce too.

art, i dont think theyre really trying to be catchy but rather just stating what the service is - wedding web(sites) - (i think she added the nola because the other domain name wasnt available)...

she changed it from rsvp because originally she was only offering one service- RSVPs... she got so many request for complete websites that that idea was far better because she can still offer a package of only rsvps and other things as well... do you have any other ideas for a name lol?? i dont think she's filed with the state yet lol

i do screenprint, embroidery and banner work and i dont foresee me having any issues with reproducing it in any of those formats - please, do tell why you think that because i could be over looking the thought - thanks so much -angie

i think the name makes no sense. sure, we all get the point, but "wedding webs" doesn't make sense grammatically or logically. "webs?" maybe "sites" (or even "web" singular), but "webs" doesn't mean anything. there's only one world wide web, not multiple webs.

it sounds like george w bush saying "internets." or, one of my pet peeves, people who say graphics artist or graphics designer.

Yes G nailed my thinking on the name better than I did (we think alike*). And you CAN influence the naming decision. Your opinion might not be the most important one of the group - but if you can give them well reasoned thought as to why it's not working - they might reconsider. Personally, I think RSVP still works with the expanded business idea - but that's jmho.

Anyway - when it comes to this logo, you have two light colors that abut each other - the pink and the grey. Anytime the registration is off on a printed piece - you will get a dark line where the two colors connect because they'll overlap (or you'll get a white gap in the other direction). Since the lines are diagonal - you will be open to misregistration in all four directions as well.

But beyond that - it's kind of confusing and the fleur-de-lis has to be a cliche in NOLA. Come on.

i think wedding webs sounds dumb too. but id gamble that aldo here is totally outside of that discussion. especially if these clowns already have their dba, domain, etc...

but i also think you guys are selling the name short. though it does have a hacky "graphics designer" ring to it. the service does "web" together the couple and their friends and family. and id hope theyve done more than one of them... so technically it is justifiable.

but here is some suggestion on the mark. i tried it in photoshop. and it looks way better with both wwws in black. which surprised me.

next think of a more script or hand scrawled ww and how that might combine with the n o l a letters (all somewhat abstracted) a LOT of elements there to work with... i did it. and as much as i HATE it. the O became a wedding ring... yeah art d, sometimes you just have to ; )

Yeah - seems like there's a lot of those "just have to's" - don't it?

BTW - update on the masthead... After posting it, I went back and had a serious discussion with the principles about everyone's concerns on the board here. They wouldn't change it - they were totally sold on it. So we went forward as is. It's been on the paper for close to a year now and the response has been nothing but positive.

wgzn - thx for taking the time to try to improve the logo! would like to see it...

YES fleur de lis are very, very cliche here - but everyone here still loves them! when she suggested using a fleur de lis, she asked for the saints fleur de lis, so it totally could have been worse guys :-)

it cracks me up how much yall hate the name - it never bothered me before yall started tearing it apart!

i truly appreciate yall opinions,
thanks,
angie
