As stated above, the logo should be:
I am not interested in anything cartoonish or kitschy. Classic, yet modern is better.
Obviously, working a sapphire into the design may work. It is not necessary, though.
The logo should just include the word 'Sapphire' or create a distinction between 'Sapphire' and 'Wed' since 'Wed' will only be used on the website.
I'd like to be able to use the logo in a variety of ways...on the website, on the gift bags brides receive, on business cards and stationery. I'd also like the ability to add the subtitles myself.
I'm also interested in the possibility of commissioning the winning designer to design the new website and media kit.
