    Hello everyone,

    I am Seckira and I am excited and nervous about my upcoming nuptials in August. First, can anyone please explain to me whose monograms are used on weddings favors or items. Pardon my ignorance, but I see all these monogrammed items on the toasting glasses, invitations, and other items which look gorgeous but I don't know the formality/etiquette about whose initials are used (the bride's, groom', both). Please explain. Thanks.

      I don't think there are any "rules" but most people seem to use the forename initial of the bride and groom. There's a great thread about how to make your own monogram here:

            I believe that is the monograms are the first initials of each of your first names with the first letter of your last name in the middle.

            So we are Evan and Erika J**** so the monogram would be EJE on the items you described.

            but when making a wedding logo, anything goes be as creative as you want.

                Welcome! I'm using our monogram as a simple logo to tie together all the pieces of paperwork involved in our wedding. It will be on save the date cards, invitations, pre-travel info, etc. There is some old rule about not using your FI's last initial as your own until after the wedding, so you shouldn't use it on inivtes, etc. My logo is just our first initials, but this is your own call.

                  Thank you all for answering my question about creating wedding monogram. Wow, I can't believe how awesome this site is. For some who is excited about her upcoming nuptials but lack the creativity needed for generating ideas (I'm more the analytical type), I feel a little more relaxed and fortunate knowing that I now have access to a forum with vast and incredible personal experiences/insights. I really appreciate this.

                    Hi Seckira welcome to the forum! I just joined recently and I am still learning how to navigate the site. However, I have found a great deal of ideas when it comes to monograms. if you type it on the search box, different threads pop up and you'll get ideas of what type you like as you create your own. It's fun, although a lot of work. I'm still working on mine. :)
