5 monogrammed wedding gift ideas and etiquette

 Monograms in Weddings

Weddings — and the celebrations that surround them — are always an exciting time for everyone in a family. They’re a way to begin a new adventure together as a new couple, borrowing important family and cultural traditions and creating new traditions. Monograms are an age-old tradition that are getting a modern refresh in today’s weddings. They’re a unique way to meld two families together, honoring surnames, ushering in new names and celebrating brand-new beginnings. 

Wedding Monograms Etiquette 

Etiquette surrounds monograms, so it’s no surprise that when choosing a special monogrammed item for the big day, it’s important to follow decorum. Tradition states that that it is not appropriate for engaged couples to use the groom’s last name for monograms. This means that if you want to use a monogram for invitations and save-the-date cards, you’ll want to use what’s called a “duogram,” which is a combination of the bride and the groom’s first (or last) names. Once married, it’s alright to use the traditional monogram, but remember the “ladies first” rule: the bride’s name should always come first. For example, use the bride’s first name initial (left), the groom’s surname initial (middle) and the groom’s first name initial (right).
