Wedding Music Unveiled (weddingmusicunveiled.com)
Wedding Music Unveiled is a new business that will assist in planning music for wedding ceremonies. We are musicians with much church wedding experience and recognize that most people have little experience or knowledge of classical music. With this recognition and our experience, we aim to help couples plan a distinctive, memorable wedding without having to resort to overused favorites. This will differ from other wedding guides that generally try to be all things to all people and offer musical help for weddings in gardens, churches of all types and just about every other kind of wedding. As a result, they tend to be generic, incomplete, and sometimes misleading regarding church weddings. We will focus exclusively on what we know.
Our initial product will be an ebook that contains how-to planning information (for selecting music, finding musicians, dealing with the church, coordinating everything, etc.) and lists with many music suggestions.
Feel free to check out blog (weddingmusicunveiled.com) to get a feel for the business.
Our target audience consists of two distinct groups.
Our primary target are those (generally, but not always, women) planning their church weddings (whether actually scheduled or still a dream) and those who might be assisting her.
Our secondary target are wedding musicians (for the most part, church musicians such as organists and pianists) an perhaps even clergy.
Ebook page size is 8.5x11" (tho', as long as design is scalable, there should be no issue). Eventual print book size is TBD.
Design should be flexible:
(1) I may split the ebook into two (one part for planning info, one part for music suggestions). Design would be the same, but I'd like to be easily able to switch up the titles.
(2) I may provide updates to the book over time (for example, to add new music selections) & might want to easily add something like "2011 edition".
Shades of blue are desired but don't need to dominate (see logo on web site for cues).
Title of ebook is "A Guide to Selecting Memorable Church Wedding Music". Could also be "Wedding Music Unveiled's Guide...".
Include the logo.
Wedding Music Unveiled is the author but it's not desired to say "by Wedding M...". The inclusion of the logo (& perhaps WMU name) should be sufficient to allow one to figure it out.
Christian symbology (such as a cross) should not be used as part of design. However, if it appears non-prominently in artwork (such as in a stock photo), that's OK. The focus is on music for church weddings, not the church part.
Because it is church weddings, no images or depictions of non-church (e.g. outdoor) weddings.
Must have a modern, professional appearance.
Must not seem stuffy, boring nor "cartoony". Must not be "girly" (avoid pinks, excessive frills, etc).
