Make a Statement with Your Monogram

June 2, 2010 at 12:55 pm 1 comment


In several areas and regions around the world, monograms have been used for centuries for a number of different reasons.  Customarily speaking, they were used to display an artisan’s signature on his or her creation, but through the years, monograms were adapted as a unique way of personalizing one’s possessions.

I know.  Blah, blah, blah, blah, right?  I can’t help it… my heart beats for historical facts :)

Anyhoot, when it comes to your wedding day, monograms can be a great way to personalize and detail your ceremony and receptions.  Because they can be produced as a design element, rather than just alphabetical letters, they are a timeless way for adding customized class.  Think of them as the most elite form of combining your initials to your Louvre’s initials to make one, succinct symbol of your devotion for all to see…

Too deep?…  I knew it.  I always do that.

Okay, maybe monograms don’t need to be thought of that deeply, but for your wedding, they can be a useful tool to bring a sense of elegant uniformity.  They can be done as subtle touches on your paper products, like stationery, favor packaging, ceremony programs, reception menus or place cards. 

For a bolder look, buy or make a monogrammed aisle runner. Perhaps in lieu of a traditional cake topper, have one that combines you and your spouse’s initials. Orrrrr wrap your bouquet with a monogrammed handkerchief.  It’s your wedding day… you can do whatever you want!

Bottom line, simply by taking your first name initial, his first name initial and plopping your new, shared last name initial in the middle, you can create an abundance of choices to add to your big day!  And who can’t get behind that?
