We've planned several weddings in recent times where we've incorporated such personalization, and part of the fun is coming up with all of the ways or places you can use them! Here are some of our favorite examples:
We put this couple's initials on their invitation, their joint monogram on their cake (which also had a gorgeous initial topper!) and their last name initial on their reception dinner menu. But our favorite personalized element of this wedding is that stunning monogrammed aisle runner!
For this couple, we included their first name initials on their wedding program, put a gorgeous monogram gobo on their dance floor and included that same joint monogram on their reception menus and even their photo booth strips!
This couple wanted an eclectic mix of personalization, so their cake showcased their married surname initial, the dance floor gobo showed that initial along with their first names and their table cards included their first name initials. We tied them all together by using the same scrolled oval frame around each element.
For this elegant event, we include a fanciful initial for the bride's maiden name on the wedding program, and their married last name was represented on the reception dinner menu.
We mixed things up for this wedding, as well. The couple's first name initials were on the wedding program, while the cupcakes featured their last name initial and their dance floor gobo showed their first names and last initial.
This glam wedding featured another eclectic mix of initials and names, tied together with an elegant scrolled frame. We especially love that calligraphied cake topper that perfectly matched the paper products!
This stunning red and black affair featured the bride's and groom's initials as large hanging floral arrangements framing the chapel doors, and we repurposed them at the reception. We also included the couple's married last name initial on pillows and napkins in the cocktail hour lounge. Their blinged out favor boxes included their last name initial with their first names.
Do you brides love monograms as much as we do? Are any of you planning to incorporate them in your wedding day décor?
