Bringing your two names together is one of the most exciting effects of the entire wedding experience — and you can’t help but want those newly-joined initials glued, printed, stenciled and stitched on every knickknack and around every corner. (Aw.)
While monograms are not nouveau when it comes to wedding celebrations and decor, couples are finding sweet new ways to incorporate them throughout their festivities. Think outside of the typical monogrammed hanky (okay, you will probably still have this, and we don’t blame you — it’s darling) and more like monogram-shaped cupcake displays.
TWO CAN PLAY THAT GAME: Corn hole has made a sudden resurgence as a go-to game at parties and weddings — guests love activities. A simple DIY project, personalized corn hole boards are a hit and will be a fun memento for years to come.
DAPPER DISPLAY: Cupcakes’ popularity has soared in the last five years or so; reinvent the trend by arranging the confections in a two-toned, sleek monogram arrangement.
CAKE TOPPER: Relatively inexpensive (and can even be an easy DIY project), a script monogram cake topper is stunning.
BRIDESMAID GIFTS: Expect a longer post on gifts for your gals in the near future. Until then, we love these modern monogrammed (yours or theirs) bracelets as a token of thanks for your leading ladies.
GUESTBOOK: A bold initial is a great alternative to a traditional guestbook — and can double as the first piece of art you own together. (Those walls are pretty bare in the early days!) Also, instead of your guests’ well wishes being tucked away in a book on a shelf somewhere, with a hanging initial, you’ll always be able to steal a glance as you walk by.
VEIL: We couldn’t help but include this adorable monogrammed veil. In this case, the new monogram doubles as a decorative touch and her “something new.”
