Monograms Turn Ordinary Into Extraordinary

By: Karen Sullen

It's amazing, the power of those three little letters. Whether you choose the delicate scroll of initials or the stylish strength of block letters, monograms are an elegant way for couples and wedding guests to add their personal touch to a special day. And that extra touch is turning up in some unexpected places, including these creative uses for monograms:

Gift-registry surprise

Monogramming an item from the registry gives the best of both worlds-a "safe choice" the couple will love with a personal touch that shows you care. Personalizing the gift will be an unexpected surprise that takes the gift up a notch or two. Think how luxurious monogrammed sheets would be!

Monograms take the cake

Couples can add a personal touch to their reception with monogrammed cake toppers. They are available in a variety of styles, including the letters themselves or acrylic designs that can incorporate the monogram and wedding date.

His and hers

Forget about the matching towels. Try monogrammed bath robes along with personalized flip flops or slippers. They will be perfect for those relaxing times around the house.

Perfect for your party…wedding party, that is!

When it comes to appreciating bridesmaids and groomsmen, nothing says "thank you" like a monogrammed gift. Each person is a unique addition to the wedding, and each one should have a gift that reflects his or her individuality. Monogrammed tote bags, travel kits and even money clips are excellent gift options.

Monograms can be a mouthful

Cookies are a deliciously different wedding favor. Beneath the monogrammed icing lies a delicious cookie that guests of all ages will enjoy.

Lighten Up

Adding monograms to unity and memorial candles can be a wonderful tribute during the ceremony and a lasting keepsake of your wedding day.

Get the star treatment

Roll out the "red carpet" with a monogrammed aisle runner. Runners can be done in wedding colors (not just white anymore) and can include initials, artwork and even poems and scriptures, adding a delightful surprise to the ceremony. It's the last place anyone would expect to see a monogram.

As you can see, monograms can be a wonderful addition to a wedding gift or ceremony, a stylish touch creating lasting memories.
