You know you’re counting down until your new last name and new monogram make their debut. And the best way to make your wedding day as unique as you is to incorporate your personal monogram into, well, just about everything. Here are a bunch of festive ways to do so on your big day.
Paper Goods and Décor
From invites to menus, to table runners and beyond, your monogram can go literally anywhere. Make sure to work with a trusted designer to create a monogram or crest that fits both the color palette and aesthetic you’re looking for. Then, incorporate it into small, intimate details, like table runners, mirrors and vases.
Naturally, wedding guests always gravitate towards the bar. Put your new initials front and center every time guests grab a drink with complimentary bar accessories guests won’t miss, like these festive cocktail napkins! Or, try drink stirrers or custom wine and beer labels for a different personalized experience. Koozies make a great favor and are perfect for more casual outdoor receptions.
Photobooths are a great way to let guests leave their signature mark—props included! But your monogram on the actual printed photo is just the tip of the iceberg. Stephan Bodnar, BDes – CEO of Flashworks Photobooth Inc, suggests “customized green-screen backgrounds or tailored graphics on the booth’s LCD screens.”
Looking for longevity? By including your monogram on the physical printed picture—many of which make the fridge—you’ll ensure that guests see your new initials weeks, even years after the wedding is over. And don’t forget about consistency. “Of course, the design of your entire print layout should complement your wedding theme and decor, with similar details from your wedding invitations and any other print items you’ve created,”says Stephan.
If day-of games are on your agenda, treat guests to rounds of cornhole with custom boards and bean bags. We’ll toss one off to that! These monogrammed cornhole boards would look so great at a rustic outdoor barn wedding.
Sweets and Treats
Cookies, cupcakes, —the possibilities are endless. If you can think of it, a monogram can be put on it—even a large, edible version for your wedding cake! These cookies would make the cutest little favors.
Hosting a cigar bar at your wedding? Make sure guests can light them with monogrammed match boxes that double as a wedding favor.
Jewelry and Accessories
Show off your new initials with a custom monogrammed necklace, signet ring, or clutch you can wear even after the big day is over. You’re married! Let your new initials shine.
