Dear DJ AJ9: How Do You Design a Lighted Monogram?

Ever wonder how a Something New Entertainment lighted monogram design goes from dream to reality?  Read ON for a glimpse into our design process!

Your designer will ask you a series of questions about the existing design elements that you’ve already planned for your wedding — though we want your lighted monogram or gobo to stand out as a focal WOW factor, we also want it to compliment the rest of your event and really look like it belongs there.

We’ll ask you about colors, themes, icons, imagery, and fonts that you may already be using in your Save the Dates, invitations, menu and escort cards, or programs.  If you have a stationery designer, we’ll work directly with them, too to ensure that everything coordinates.

Case in point: here’s how we created Brian and Sarah’s perfect lighted monogram for their beautiful modern wedding at the Club at Key Center, pictured above!

First, we contacted Sarah to ask about her existing design elements.  She quickly replied with a photo of her wedding invitations:

Since Sarah and Brian were holding their reception at the Club at Key Center, their designer at Blue Envelope Boutique had incorporated a key motif.  Their color was sort of between an aubergine and a plum purple.

Next, DJ AJ9 contacted the team at Blue Envelope Boutique to coordinate a few elements of the design, since they were producing some additional stationery to be used at the reception, as well.  We spoke with Rachel Trem, who — by the way — besides being very talented is also sweet and EXTREMELY responsive.

Then, DJ AJ9 produced a monogram design proposal for Sarah and Brian, incorporating the same fonts from their invitations and stationery, as well as their colors, and a key motif.  Guess what?  They loved it!  Perfect match!

Finally, here’s the finished product: the Lighted Monogram projected on their dance floor!  Paired with a room full of purple uplighting, this was an absolutely stunning effect!
