Monograms, Monograms, Monograms

Its hard to believe that Creative Montage really took off when we started selling our monograms. The ever popular monogram is a fantastic way to personalize your special day with a "theme" without it being overdone. It's human nature to find enjoyment in things that are repetetive and what a fantastic way to achieve that, than with a monogram!Photo credit: A Softer Image
We are asked often for ideas and suggestions on what can be done with monograms, so I thought it would be a great idea to talk about it here.

Save the dates: This is the first glimpse your guests will have of your "theme" in most cases. Try to select a monogram that utilizes only your first initials and/or wedding date to stay true to the monogram etiquette of not using your married monogram until after you're officially Mr. & Mrs.
Invitations: By continuing your monogram into your paper products such as your invites, you are setting the theme even further. Use a printed invite cuff topped off with your monogram to tie the invite together. Create coordinating mailing stamps with your monogram to spruce up the outside of your mailing envelopes and VOILA! Instant repetition! All of our custom invitations include one FREE monogram!Photo credit: Amanda Quintenz Photography
Pre-Ceremony & Ceremony paper products:
There are a few ways to add your monogram to this area of your wedding day. Pre-ceremony you can use your monogram on rehearsal dinner invites or Out of Town Guest items. Include your monogram on your wedding itinerary for your guests and you can really tie your theme together. For the ceremony, aisle runners, programs, rose petal cones, bubble containers and reserved seating signs are all great places to include your logo.Photo Credit: Matt Kim Photography
Reception Paper Products: This includes placecards, menu cards, table numbers, favors, Wonderful Graffiti for your reception doors, floors or walls...All fantastic ways to personalize your reception space. Stick with the same monogram that was on your save the dates and invites and your special day will seem more pulled together OR select a monogram that coordinates with your pre-ceremony monogram and use your new MARRIED monogram!Photo Credit: Steve DepinoPhoto credit: Amanda Quintenz Photography
Post ceremony: You can now use your new married monogram on all things paper, including thank you cards and your wedding photo album!
