Wedding monograms flawlessly combine your initials into a design that you can use for many details on your wedding day. Even with so many options, it’s difficult to have a wedding that is truly unique and memorable. So if you want to add your own style to your wedding, you need to find small and interesting ways to include your personality. One fantastic way to do this is with a wedding monogram! Its a unique symbol that represents you and no one else will have the same one – especially if you go custom made.
The design process is a fun way to showcase your creativity that will leave you with a great memory of your wedding planning experience! There are so many monogram fonts and designs to choose from. Your wedding monogram may be the only detail of your wedding that is one-of-a-kind! Why not use it everywhere you can? This post will walk you through 9 ways you can use your wedding monogram to create unique wedding details.
1 | Wedding Invitations
Of course, we have to start with your wedding invitations! Your invitations set the tone and style for your wedding and get guests excited to attend. Adding a wedding monogram to your invitations gives your guests a taste of what’s yet to come!
A wedding monogram is a stunning way to add a personal touch to your invitations, and can create a custom design without adding unnecessary details that clutter the invitation. It’s easy to add a monogram design to your invitations if you’re already having your invitations designed. I love incorporating a couple’s wedding monogram onto their wedding invitations! Monograms are a simple and elegant way to personalize your invitations for you.
2 | Wedding Signage
You can add your wedding monogram to just about anything on your wedding day. Signage may be the most common way to do this! You can add a monogram to your wedding welcome sign, programs, table numbers, bar menus, and so much more.
Menus are another great way to add your unique stamp at your reception. Your wedding monogram can be resized to fit just about anywhere! Menus and other wedding signage allow you to have some fun and play with design. This is a fun way to create cohesion throughout your wedding details without making things look cluttered.
3 | Cocktail Napkins
If creating an impressive guest experience is something you desire for your wedding, adding small details can really make a difference. Like cocktail napkins! This is a fun way to add your signature at cocktail hour. A little personalization goes a long way.
4 | Desserts
What about a wedding monogram you can eat? Whether you are having a traditional cake, a doughnut wall, a cookie bar, or something else, there are endless opportunities to add your wedding monogram to desserts. You can use your wedding monogram to decorate the dessert table or use it on the sweets themselves! Some vendors can create custom designs to decorate your desserts. Talk to your vendors and see what your options are!
5 | Aisle Runner
Using your wedding monogram on an aisle runner is a great way to add unique details to your ceremony. Set yourself apart from the other couples who have tied the knot at your venue! It also makes for beautiful pictures as you walk down the aisle. The style of your monogram can seamlessly blend each of your design elements together to create one elegant environment for your ceremony!
6 | Welcome Gifts & Guest Favors
You can use your wedding monogram to add your unique signature to gift bags for your wedding party or out-of-town guests. Adding this personalization makes them feel like a genuine thank you. It shows you took the time to think of them on your wedding day!
Wedding monograms can also be used on your wedding favours. You can use your wedding monogram on the physical favour or add it to your packaging to turn simple favours into personal thank yous!
7 | Reception Lighting
The details don’t have to stop when the party starts! Many lighting vendors and DJs can create custom lighting that shows off your wedding monogram. Place it on the wall behind your sweetheart table or adorn the dance floor with your unique design. These details are great for pictures of your first dance, for speeches, and to capture your guests having fun on the dance floor!
8 | Guest Book
Consider adding your wedding monogram to the cover of your guest book! Your guest book is one of the few pieces of your wedding day you get to take home. Adding your personal wedding monogram to the cover is a wonderful way to celebrate the design and remember your wedding day.
9 | Photo Booth Prints
Many couples choose to design custom photo booth prints for their wedding reception. You can add your monogram to this design to make fun prints that your guests will keep with them to remember your special day! Remember to ask your vendor to save a digital copy of every photo taken so you can look back and see all the fun your guests had.
A custom monogram is unique to you.
No one else will have the same combination of initials, style and design.
Don’t forget that your custom monogram design can also be used digitally! If you’re using digital invitations, ceremony programs, menus, or a wedding website, you can add your wedding monogram to create a cohesive look that matches your physical wedding decor.
You can also use your monogram as your email signature too! Just be sure that your monogram is 2 initials – being the first initials of both your first names. Some wedding monograms have 3 initials – being the first initial of both your first names plus the first initial of your joint name. If you go with this monogram style the first time you can use it is after your wedding ceremony.
With both digital and print options, the ways you can use your wedding monogram design are endless. If you’re looking for ways to create a wedding day that is as unique and special as your love, a wedding monogram is a great option!
