Make your own monogram

What is a monogram? Well, according to



1. a design consisting of two or more alphabetic letters combined or interlaced, commonly one's initials, often printed on stationery, embroidered on clothing, etc.

2. a single emblematic or decorative letter; applied initial.

–verb (used with object)

3. to decorate with a monogram.

Simply put, a wedding monogram would be a special icon made for the bride and groom. A logo that can be used to streamline all the design elements of their wedding. The monogram can be used on their invitations, giveaways, cake, ribbons, candles, napkins, fans, parasols, carpet, table numbers, anywhere they wish!

The monogram is simply another tool to make your wedding more personal. Something that "defines" you as a couple. Something that sets the mood and tone of your wedding.

Rare are the brides who can not "design" simple logos on Windows-based programs like Word or Powerpoint. Here's one I made on Powerpoint. Very easy to make.

For graphic design idiots like me who have no idea how to use Photoshop or similar design programs, there are a couple of websites that can help you design your monogram. Below is a monogram I "designed" from

Here's another one:
Pretty too, right? You can customize the monogram depending on your wedding color motif.

Living in an era of downloadable wedding templates, you can practically design every aspect of your wedding yourself! I know that we'd want to avoid a cookie-cutter kind of wedding but going through some templates can provide that spark of inspiration when you get into a wedding slump.

Check out a new wedding blog I discovered for more free wedding downloadables: You can download designs for menus, dessert names, postcards, almost everything you'll need for your wedding!

Have fun!
