I enjoy this crest trend because it’s really the ultimate personalization. More elaborate than a monogram, crests give your wedding invitations sophisticated personality and brings back that feeling of great tradition.

The usual elements found in a crest design are these: Your names or initials. Your wedding date. Your favorite colors. And depending on how detailed you want it, maybe a hobby of each of yours, or your favorite fruit (see above!). Once a designer gets a hold of these elements, they can work with you and make something you’ll be proud of!

Think about this: Having a custom crest designed for your wedding day guarantees you to have this piece of art forever. Once you have it, you can display in your house long after your 8 hour celebration. Take the wedding date away, and you can use it on your family Christmas cards or stationery. The possibilities are endless for how to keep using your mark!

Did you have a custom crest designed for your wedding day? Have you used it for other things, after the fact?
