One wedding style element that will never go out of style is the monogram. Many couples love to use it because it’s the first time they actually can use it. We’ve seen everything from Save the Dates to Cake Toppers to Thank You notes with monograms. Here are a few noteworthy ways to get creative by using monograms for your wedding.
THE TRADITIONAL MONOGRAM
Always classic, the traditional monogram consists of the 1st letter of the bride’s 1st name, then the 1st letter of the soon-to-be shared last name, and then the 1st letter of the groom’s first name. Below, two of the four wedding programs use a monogram on their cover, each very different but cohesive with the style of their event.
THE MODERN MONOGRAM
Evelyn Miller, Owner of Epitome Papers tells us, “we have been finding that our more modern brides just want their first name and their fiance’s first name together.” When it comes to really modern invitations, Miller often sees the monogram debossed into the paper (where it is pressed in with no ink). Gina Peterson of Ginger P. Designs enjoys incorporating monograms into wax seals because “It really is a traditional approach to our modern-day weddings.”
A LITTLE TASTE OF LUXURY
“[In the past] monograms were used to signify wealth and social status. Though that is no longer the case, it still gives a couple’s invitations a royal feel. Having a monogram also helps set the mood so your guests know this is going to be a classy event,” says Miller.
A NATURAL LOGO
Miller says, “[Monograms are] a great way to give your wedding day a logo you can add to just about anything; napkins, coasters, menus, invitations and more.” And we’ve seen monograms on everything from dance floors to cake toppers. The images below show just how different a monogram can look by infusing your own sense of style. Each dance floor below from Holowalls, is different from the next, and they are varied because of color, style, and font choices.

THE LATEST TAKE ON MONOGRAMS
“One thing we have noticed that is slowly growing in popularity is having your monogram on the inner envelope or envelope liner! It gives a little extra elegance to your suite,” Miller notes.
Miller says this along with “having their monogram on items such as matchbooks, wine glasses, and a keepsake they can treasure long after their wedding day” is getting more popular.
