Wedding Music Unveiled (http://www.WeddingMusicUnveiled.com)
Wedding Music Unveiled is a new business that will assist in planning music for wedding ceremonies. We are musicians with much church wedding experience. We recognize that most people have little experience or knowledge of classical music. With this recognition and our experience, we aim to help couples plan a distinctive, memorable wedding without resulting to overused favorites (such as the ubiquitous Canon in D).
Other sites, businesses and books try to be all things to all people and offer musical help for weddings in gardens, churches of all types and just about every other kind of wedding. As a result, they tend to be generic, incomplete, and sometimes misleading regarding church weddings. We will focus exclusively on what we know: the Christian church wedding.
Our products will include free tips & blog articles as well as guidebooks, CDs and other products.
We want to develop our web site into a community where those planning church weddings (or just thinking about the subject) can come together to share and discuss ideas & resources.
Feel free to check out our website (WeddingMusicUnveiled.com; currently only a blog site) to get a feel for the business (the site design is still in progress--waiting for the logo).
Our target audience consists of two distinct groups.
Our primary target are those (generally women) planning their weddings (whether actually scheduled or still a dream) and those who might be assisting her.
Our secondary target are wedding musicians (for the most part, church musicians such as organists and pianists).
The logo should be usable in a variety of different media types: web site header, business cards, print, print advertising, even vinyl signage (such as a for a trade show booth).
The logo should inspire confidence (which will come from our experience) and be appropriate for a subject matter authority.
I am very much open to different design concepts, though my initial thought was to use musical symbology (perhaps a treble clef or eighth notes) playing off the word "unveiled" somehow. But please do not feel bound to it.
- Should be flat, not 3D in appearance
- Do not include URL
- Christian symbology (such as a cross) should not be used
- Should not be too complex or busy
- Must have a modern, professional appearance.
- Must not seem stuffy, boring nor cartoony
- I imagine a blue (& white) logo, but am open to other ideas. It should also work in B&W.
- Must not be girly (pink not desired)
- Horizontal layout (better for web banners, business cards)
- I'm undecided as to the role the brand name should play in the logo. I think I'll need to start seeing entries before I can state a preference.
- If you include brand name, use full name, not abbreviation WMU
- Do not include tagline (is on site but deliberately not mentioned here)
