    Hello ladies,


    I started my wedding planning by putting first things first.  I decided I would try to create our wedding monogram since this seems to be a good starting point. 


    Ok, 20 minutes into working on my first design i realized i have no idea about monogram rules or if there are any for that matter.


    Does anyone know whose name should come first?

      I don't know if there are any rules for monograms, but what I read for invitations is that the bride's name goes first, so I used that for the monogram:) Hope that helps.
