13 Deadly Ways to Display Your Wedding Monogram

Monograms may sound a little stiff and old-fashioned but they can be a really fun way to personalise your day and can become your own little motif for your wedding. Essentially it’s made by overlapping or combining two or more letters to form one symbol, in most cases a person’s initials so for example if you’re having a monogram as a joint married couple it would be CSB (Carol, Smith, Brian) – the woman’s first name initial comes first, followed by the shared last name initial, and finally the man’s first initial. You can just use your first initials also, or have your own individual monograms made up too with just your own initials.

Lots of couples choose to create a custom monogram for their wedding so they can use it as a bit of a stamp for the day and pop it on everything from the invites and menus to favours and even their cake tiers! It’s a gorgeous way to personalise your day and make it all about you as a couple and can be as formal or as causal as you please. If you don’t fancy a full on monogram, you could always just pop your initials side by side (C & B) and use it as a type of monogram instead – check out some lovely ways to include your initials here. And if you do like the idea of some monogramming, take a peek at some of our favourite ways you can include them below!
