|Wedding Monogram Etiquette|
Monograms are a hot new trend in wedding favors!
When it comes to a wedding monogram its ladies first. When the bride takes the groom's last name, the monogram is; bride's first initial, married last name initial (usually larger), groom's first initial. For example: Kendra marries Drew Anderson. Their monogram looks like this.
However, before the wedding ceremony you should not use your married monogram (the monogram with your married last name initial on it). You may be tempted to use your married mongram on save-the-dates or wedding invitation. This is frowned upon. Not even if the couple has the same last name initial. Instead you should use a monogram with your first initials only, like this.
At the wedding ceremony, your married monogram is fair game! Use your married monogram on your wedding favors, programs, table settings and thank you cards.
With all that said, these are modern times and some brides want to print their married monogram on whatever they want and thats perfectly fine too!
