When it comes to weddings, every couple wants their big day to be special, unforgettable and unique. What screams more unique than your very own customized wedding monogram? If you have never heard about it, it is a motif of two interwoven letters, typically the couple’s initials. This imparts a personal touch to your wedding. Make it a part of your different wedding elements so you can tie them all together with a common theme. Wondering how you can put your monogram to the best use? Be it classic or contemporary, here are 5 tips to creatively use your wedding monogram.
On Your Invitations
Your wedding invitation is the first element of your wedding that your friends and family come across – it sets the tone. True to the saying, “the first impression is the best impression”, there is no place more appropriate for a monogram than your invitation. Regardless of whether you are opting for digital or paper invitations, add in your monogram and customize the card. If you are sending a save-the-date before your invite, don’t hesitate to throw in your monogram there as well. Revealing your monogram on your invitation gives your guests a little sneak peek, leaving them curious about what else is in store!
In Your Photo Booth
Flaunt your monogram in your photo booth, either in the background or as a prop. Your loved ones are going to click away here, and photos are precious memories. Make sure your wedding logo is captured in those memories of your loved ones. You could even set up a polaroid photo counter, where guests can instantly get their photos printed with the monogram on the bottom or top corner. Now when they look back at photos from your wedding, the monogram is something that is always going to be there. This is a great way to show off your logo, not just at the wedding but long after it too!
In Your Decor
This is our personal favourite because when we say wedding decor, there are so many different ways to incorporate your monogram. You can make it big and bold on the stage backdrop, display it on the entrance arch, have it on your wedding cake, on the aisle runner, or even use lighting to illuminate a blank wall or the dance floor with your monogram. Your imagination is the limit here, so go crazy with this one and feature your logo in every decor element possible.
On Your Return Gifts/ Wedding Favours
The return gift is your final chance to leave an everlasting impression on your guest. Add your wedding logo to the gifts tags or have them printed on the bag itself. You could even add monogram stickers on the contents of the gift bag. Take it a step further with a custom wax seal made from your monogram and add a vintage touch. You want to add a monogram to your wedding favours so guests can remember your special day forever.
On Personalised Stationery
Think beyond just the wedding. Stamp note cards and thank-you cards with your custom monogram and personalize them before you send them to your friends & family. These notecards can be sent for any holiday or a festive celebration, so the monogram will be put to use not just during and immediately after your wedding, but for every celebration that comes after. You can keep it as a subtle silhouette in the background or pack a punch with a bold pattern on the corner.
Now you know how you can use a monogram to make your big day a true reflection of you. There are several ways to make your wedding monogram stand out and complement your wedding celebration. All you need is a little creativity, so you can use the monogram designs where they make the most sense, without overdoing it.
