    I think it’s cute for right now, but I think it may be a bit dated down the road. You want to build your brand, so be very careful about this, if your in this for the long run think about if you think that name will still be functional in 10-20 years.

    You will NOT want rebrand later trust me. I build brands and websites for a living, and I also do wedding stationery. I changed my wedding brand and it SUCKED! I did it early on too so it was less work, but still it was not fun and screwed up my sales on refferals.

    Trust me, I see this all the time with clients, pick something that will last with you and not be dated down the road. Rebrands are costly, especially when your business will be majorly dependent on refferals, and it will be 🙂

    While its not a horrible name, its a name that gears itself to a certain set of younger people. To me, it doesnt exactly scream sophisticated and experienced wedding planner.  

    I get where you want something more fun than stuffy, but this doesnt do it for me.

    I will say, I like it better than the randomly-strung-together words that the spam bot above suggested.

    It is a little “now” – but is that necessarily a bad thing? Is this something you see yourself doing for the next 40-50 years? Or the next 2-3?

    I agree with PPs.  It’s a fun, cute name, but I think you may not like it as much down the line.

    I would suggest picking a name that sounds like money (i.e. classy name) because that is the kind of clientele you want to attract!

    I’d go for it. I work for an industry nonprofit in the fabric business (think tent rentals and awnings) and you would not believe the STUPID company names that people pick. ABC and ACME are popular ones, and most are just someone’s name. An individual person’s first and last name. SO uncreative. I think yours is catchy and honestly, would turn up well in a google search.

    I think of a very sesame street looking logo with bright colored, round letters and a goofy background. It sounds lile you do fun weddings, not classy, beautiful, sentimental weddings. If that is the feel you want, I think it works.

    For the record, I read it as “oh my god” weddings, not oh-em-gee, even though I usually speak the letters. My brain almost auto-translates abbreviarions like that. I wouldn’t have thought you meant the letters unless you told me, so your logo may be seen as offensive to some people.

    I’m not a big fan. It doesn’t come off as professional to me, and I think you will regret it honestly. 

    I too do business logos, wedding stationery, that sort of thing, for a living and have had to steer more than one client in the direction of thinking again about their logo. Re-branding is a total pain, as has been said, and in a few years I think you will be wondering “Why did I name my business this?” Then you have to pay for a new logo, new website, new cards, etc etc etc.

    From a bride’s point of view, I probably wouldn’t pick a company called “OMG Weddings” from a list such as that on WeddingWire just because of the lack of professionalism in the name. I’m sorry if that sounds harsh 🙁

    I also read it as “oh my god” weddings, not oh-em-gee. I hate netspeak, with a passion!
