Kind of NWR: planning name

Ladies -


I need your help!  I have been struggling for months to come up with a name for the wedding planning business that I am starting.  I have a wedding coming up next week and want to start a blog to begin following the process.  Some words that have come to mind are:


sublime, joy, diva, special


I want people who use the company to feel important and taken care of, but I am afraid that if I use a word like glamorous, people will think their wedding is too simple to come to me.  I am afraid that if I choose something too kitschy, those that want elegant affairs (regardless of cost) will be turned off.


Ideas I have thrown around:


Daisy Wedding Planning


Sublime Soirees


Your Special Day Event Planning


Divas on a Dime (perhaps it is too kitschy - I want to make the point that I can do great things for smaller budgets, but don't want to turn people off)


 


Other ideas or honest feedback are appreciated!  Please understand that the only point of this post is to get help with a name because you all have been so helpful in so many other ways!

just something to think about... are you going to specialize in wedding planning?  or do you plan to do other events as well?  b/c if so i would eliminate the titles that only specify wedding planning as well as the ones that target the brides only. 


i LOVED kitchy names when i was looking for a planner. it showed they had personality and i appreciated that.  the one we went with, well i could tell in all her advertising that she was totally being herself, though was very friendly and accomodating. so i say, stay true to who you are as a person and thereby, a planner.  if it's something cute and "kitchy" then hey....then that's what it is.


just my two cents..

I appreciate that point.  I love kitschy names of other businesses; maybe I need to keep thinking until I come up with something.  Thanks!

After much thought and practice... I highly suggest you use your real name. My best name to date is:


 


HEATHERS ORGANIC WEDDINGS


 


I love my Eco Chic World Weddings and my Seattle Organic Weddings and My Bellingham Weddings and Utah Organic Weddings and New York Organic Weddings and  Sunset Hawaii Weddings and A Wedding Walk but Heathers Organic Weddings really gets my name out there. I just made Heather Kotoks Ceremonies for my officiants name. I offer nation wide consultations and planning for Green Weddings and have been experimenting with names...


For name branding, thinking of something that describes what you offer and sells your personal name together is how most people will remember you and know how to recommend you in the future. If you do not choose to go with your name, make sure it is all over your sites so people can google you...


 


BTW


Nothing says you can not use them all and see what sticks....


 


Congrats on your upcoming wedding. Design pics would be fun to see...!!!...

mmm it is a tough call! your business name needs a cleaver ring but still needs to be intriguing.... i have a business called  LJ's quality silk arrangments                       (where quality, class & elegancecome together....) that is my little slogan. i really liked diva's on a dime it is fun and catchy! heather is right using your name is good... i opted to use my first & middle name initials instead of my full it's a personal choice... maybe call what ever your first name is then diva's on a dime or Daisey's diva's on a dime... good luck with it!

you think that "rolls off the tongue" okay?  it's a lot of alliteration....same sounding beginnings of initials....it's not bad though...i was thinking of maybe J & A Photography or J & A Images....since FI will always be either directly or indirectly involved....

If you could give room on the boarder for the bleed room the logo would be perfect... When i go out to the edge my printers always tell me to have space around the edges of solid color...


The logo is so beautiful!
