Monograms are often used as gifts meant to leave a mark on special occasions such as weddings. They mainly appear in coins and jewelry, and they have their way of bringing out a classic charm depending on the art drawn. The use of monograms dates back to 350 BC where they were mainly used on coins. Monograms mostly comprise of the first name, middle as well as the last names initial in the case of a personal monogram. Couples may also choose monograms for their identity and in such a case, the bride picks on the groom’s last name. We also have custom monograms that are mainly drawn by illustrators or letterer. Regardless of the type of monogram, there are other unique ways through which you can use monograms as discussed below.
Wedding gifts
Monograms are perfect wedding gifts, but in this case, it would be wise to let the guest know so they give their opinion on how they would want the monogram to appear. You may also want to include a note while presenting the gift offering to personalize the gift if you didn’t consult with the couple before giving the gift. Aside from this, monograms can also be used for digital purposes on wedding websites by inserting them into a picture or the website logo.
Linens
There are also certain items such as napkins, pillows, towels or even handkerchiefs that can be monogrammed. In most cases, towels are marked at the center of one end, so they’re easily seen while hanging the towel on a rack. Pillowcases can also have monogram near the hem, at the center. It is preferable to use simple monogram of a single initial as opposed to complicated monograms while using them on pillows. Napkins, on the other hand, are marked diagonally on the side of one corner.
At the reception
This boils down to adding a personal touch to that special event you have where you can have tablecloths bearing a monogram of your initials or even that or your partner. This way, you bring out the elegance in a simple and redefined way to your reception. Further, you can hang the monograms on the chairs where your guests will be sitting at the dinner. We also have the familiar tradition of having a wedding cake decorated with the couple’s monogram which takes the creativity to a whole new level in the use of monograms.
