What to Know About Monograms

by Jennifer Sanford, Invitation Creations by Jennifer

Monograms are timeless, rich in history, and add a classic touch to almost everything. Designer monograms appear everywhere; handbags, ties, scarves, wallets, etc., but the beauty of a personal monogram is that it is, personal. It’s a great way to tie several different aspects of your wedding back to one theme. It can add the perfect, personal touch to your wedding by using it on stationary, dinnerware, napkins, floor/wall, favors, and more! It’s a great way to tie several different aspects of your wedding back to one theme!

Traditionally, a 3 letter monogram for a woman would use the first letter of her first name on the left, her last name in the center, and her middle name on the right. It is not until the couple has tied the knot when her monogram changes. After you are married, for your personal use, your monogram will remain the same with the exception of the last name. The center of your monogram will be replaced with the first letter of your married last name. Finally, if you want to include your husband in your monogram, your initial on the left will stay in place; your married last name will go in the middle, and the first initial of his name will be on the right

Monograms on your Invitations:
Combining the Bride & Groom’s initials in a monogram signifies union and the start of a new family. So ~ when brides come into my studio and want to use a monogram on the wedding invitations, most have not really thought this through. Even though you may see samples online showing monograms on invitations, it does not make it correct. It is my professional duty to explain that you that you are not that person yet. One year, six weeks, or day, prior to the wedding, your name has not changed, thereby, neither has your monogram. So when your guests receive their invitations, you are single and inviting them to witness your union as husband and wife, and Mr. and Mrs.

Plain and simple, you are not that person until you say, “I DO!” Once I explain this to you, and you still want to use your married monogram on your invitations ~ it is your choice, because they are YOUR invitations.

To see samples of monogrammed invitations, wedding supplies and gifts visit our Monogram feature HERE.
