Monograms always add a little something extra to anything but they especially add to weddings. Monograms are a simple way to personalize something in a subtle way. When the monogram symbolizes the bride and grooms initials, the brides first initial goes on the left, the groom’s first initial goes on the right with the last initial in the middle. It can be added to many different things such as save the date cards, invitations, napkins, cakes, and many more things. Some brides have had their bridesmaids monogram put on linen to wrap around each girl’s bouquet. This makes each bridesmaid feel special to the bride. A southern tradition that is normally passed down to the girls in the family is to sew a blue monogram patch into the dress every time a new family member wears the dress. This symbolizes the something blue and a family tradition. When the dress gets passed down in the family, everyone will always know who has worn the dress ahead of you. A fun way to spice up the dance floor is to have your monogram on it using lighting. If there is an isle runner, monograms look great at the beginning of the isle.
