    So my honey's first and last name both begin with D. Does anyone think that would look weird/funny as a monogram for us?

      I don't think that it would look weird. You would have your first initial on it as well. Since I am not sure what your name is, let's say your name starts with 'S'. Then your monogram could look like this:

      SDD

      When you have it in a fancier font, like a script or something, I think it would look great.

        Or maybe the last name initial in a different but coordinating font (or much larger) so it stands out more than our initials?

          Think you've just got to be careful how you do it honestly.

          My FI's initials are SAC so I wouldn't do it lmao it also depends on your warped sense of humour lol

          Or if your initials are ST then STD is not good lol - just an example but you see what I mean :-)

            not at all, I think you can have something interesting with that.

            are you worried about someone thinking about this when they see it ?
            sorry, i couldn't resist

            but i do think that if you used a larger font for the middle letter, in a coordinating color like you suggested, that it would be just fine. if someone thinks funny of it, then they need to get their head out of the gutter :) oops, that might be me

                No, not at all...My first initial is an M so none of those funny one's come into play. I just thought it wuld look weird to do a monogram that had two initials that were the same right next to each other. Just haven't seen too many of those.

                  you could put the initial of your first name then a d then your last name and then the other d to split it up if you think that will look better

                  my monograms had our entire first names on them, you could do something like this
