Creating a monogram is one of my favorite things to do! I love the initial challenge of determining the best way to combine the letters, followed by the excitement I feel when it’s just right! While monograms are perfect additions to all of your wedding paper goods, and for branding welcome gifts for your guests, I also love to see how they are incorporated into other design elements for the big day. Here are some of my favorites:

  • Megan and Joseph added their calligraphy monogram to koozies; while Emily and John used their monogram to create labels for their popper favors – cute!

  • Wax seals! I love the idea of using them to seal escort card envelopes or as an embellishment for place cards.

  • On wedding DJ booths and cocktail bars (and don’t forget napkins and drink stirrers).

  • Samantha and Samuel used their calligraphy monogram for their wedding gobo, projecting the monogram onto the dance floor; and also for cigar bands.

And a few more ideas:

  • Have your monogram laser cut and used as your wedding cake topper
  • Custom monogrammed balloons would make for some great after party fun decor or photo session
  • Use your monogram as a backdrop for a photo booth

Your turn! How will you be using your monogram for the big day? I would love to read your ideas so leave a comment below. I look forward to it!

Susan and Chris’ wedding was stunning, and I am so excited to see it featured in the Weddings Unveiled spring issue! Lauryn (Lauryn Prattes Events) did an outstanding job planning their special day; and I am thankful and honored to be a part of the incredibly talented group of vendors that helped to make this wedding so inspiring and memorable for all who attended. The calligraphy I did included spot calligraphy for the invitation suite, a full calligraphy menu, envelope addressing, table numbers, signage, and seating cards. Poppy Gray Designs then used the calligraphy to create the final look for all of the paper goods.  I am so in love with this color palette and how everything turned out!SusanChris191_027blogSusanChris194_035blogSusanChris216_083blog

I have had the pleasure of working with Kristy on many wonderful projects over the years, and was thrilled when she asked me to do the lettering for her new logo and website.  Kristy’s company, Momental Designs, offers unique handmade watercolor wedding invitations that are oh so beautiful!! The lettering I designed for her logo and website elements are spot on – sophisticated and fresh, with some lightness and flair. I love how it all came together!    

Be sure to grab your favorite bev and browse through all of the galleries and videos on the website – major eye candy!! I am also so honored to be one of Momental’s preferred calligraphers – thank you dear Kristy!

I will be taking a mini break from custom logo designs to make room for some other projects; and I am super excited to be working with Kristy on her very first book!! EEEKKKK!!! It’s going to be awesome and I hope to write about the process and take you along the journey with me!
