Monogram Ettiquette

Recommended Posts

I was planning on putting our monogram on some things like personalized mugs, welcome kits, cd of music etc but then read somewhere that it's poor ettiquette to use the monogram until after you are married. Has anyone else considered this or did you just go ahead and use the monogram? Just curious....

 

Thanks!

It's traditionally considered improper etiquette to use a MARRIED monogram until after the ceremony. This is a rule of etiquette that is frequently broken in modern weddings, and as destination weddings are even more relaxed probably most of your guests wouldn't notice. However, there are lots of options to use a monogram without breaking that rule. Just use a monogram of just your first names or initials and don't include the last name or last initial. If you're using a really traditional monogram, you can use an ampersand in place of the center middle initial: j&s instead of jRs. Hope that helps...

Ettiquette-schmettiquette! I agree with Sarah (I ADORE your work, by the way, and plan to contact you about ordering a monogram after we officially book our date!) that maybe you should go the first-names only route to avoid any monogram controversy!

 

I think it is a great personal touch to OOT bags, travel mugs, t-shirts, whatever you like -- it will give your guests a keepsake to remember how much fun they had being there to share in the special moment with you and your FI!

 

Monogram away, I say!

If you are concerned about what is proper then stick to this rule of thumb, for items used pre-ceremony such as invitations, showers, engagement events or programs you should not mix in the future husbands last initial, just stick to first names or first initials only. Otherwise, for the reception items or thank you cards it is perfectly fine to use the new last initial. Best of luck to you...

I agree as long as you are not using last names on logo it should be fine. Like it has been said most people don't look anymore anyway. Almost anything goes these days

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
