Recently, Nashville Wraps Marketing Coordinator Lee Oliver Martin got married. She had the most beautiful wedding, and the reception was held at her family’s historic Hazel Path Mansion. We wanted to share the exciting details of how she included some of our custom-printed items into this celebration.
Wedding and party planners know the importance of having a coordinated look. Lee began with a central theme: a monogrammed wedding logo.
Wedded Bliss & A Monogrammed Affair
Lee explains, “I have always loved monograms, so it seemed natural to include this as part of my wedding planning. I knew I wanted a custom monogram to use on everything wedding related, but I didn’t know what I wanted it to look like. So I hopped on Pinterest and looked at hundreds of monograms to get ideas of what I wanted.
“I then met with a graphic designer friend (Carli) and asked if she could make me a custom logo that was a mix of all of my favorite logos. I decided on the olive leaves for two reasons. One, my last name was Oliver and it was a way to always remember where I came from. Two, Mike graduated from Texas A&M and olive leaves are part of their traditions, so it was a way to incorporate his past as well.”
Welcome Gift Bags for Out-of-Town Guests
As you can see from the top photo, the bags turned out adorable. Lee said, “I knew that I wanted to use our Burlap Totes. I love the natural, understated look of the burlap, and when it came time to decide on hotel gift bags, I knew we would have the perfect size.”
To carry out the color scheme of her wedding, she added an Ivory Pre-Tied Satin Gift Bow to the handle of each bag and used Kraft Gift Tags to write each guest’s name. Since the wedding was in her hometown of Hendersonville, Tennessee (also home to Nashville Wraps), she wanted her out-of-town guests to be welcomed with some southern hospitality when they first entered their hotel room. Each tote contained the weekend itinerary, a welcome letter with all the local events happening that weekend, maps of Hendersonville and Nashville, Nashville trinkets, bottled water and RC Cola. She also included local delicacies like Goo-Goo Clusters and Moon Pies! The totes also served as gift bags for her bridal party.
“My guests loved the totes! Everyone was complimenting the ‘beautiful’ bags and how special they made them feel. My guests were sharing how they were going to use them for lunch bags or work totes. I absolutely loved it because I wanted my wedding guests to see our monogram logo from the moment they arrived until the moment we left for our honeymoon. The totes and labels definitely helped me achieve my goal.”
Personalized Ribbon & Labels from Nashville Wraps
Lee selected personalized double faced satin ribbon in silver with “Lee & Mike” printed in metallic silver and a heart in between. She tied these to clear cello bags for her elegant wedding dress cookies and other favors.
The whole process of getting everything printed by the Nashville Wraps Print Department was a joy and a cinch. “It was one of the easiest and pain-free tasks of my whole planning process! The only thing I knew before talking with the print department was the size bag I thought I wanted. I relied on the expertise of the staff to walk me through the entire design process.
“They helped me figure out the best monogram logo size, worked with my artwork to make certain it reproduced well for each product I was using, recommended an ink color and answered countless questions! After I approved the artwork, the bags took about 3-4 weeks to arrive, and they looked even better than I ever imagined!”
