What do you mean by Tiffany themed? Just the color, or are you trying to add some graphic element too? Are you just looking for a nice "O"?

I did this one quick while I’m in a lull at work. I had to use powerpoint since I don’t have access to other design programs on my own computer here, but this is a standard simple monogram. I just saw your description above which I could try to work with at home a bit, but I thought I’d throw out this one for you too. I saw your website said Bobby, so I just put Robert if you’re going to be formal. Also, I put in my own wedding date since you didn’t have one listed 🙂 Use a tiffany blue on the O and then the dots in the date are reminiscent of the period after the Co. in Tiffany & Co. Also, it would use the same font as the Tiffany & Co. logo, but I don’t have that on this machine.

I am consistently amazed at how creative, talented and helpful everyone on this site is. 

Alli: you just created that during a lull at work?  It is beautiful — very elegantic and classic!

Sorry about getting the name wrong!  Noble’s a cool name!  I did that one in powerpoint, but I have illustrator, photoshop, and indesign on my home computer. If you would like it in any one of those formats I can do that for you.  Just message me or let me know and I’d be glad to help out!

Ok, because I love this sort of thing, I came up with a few ideas for you… I don’t know your wedding date so I made one up…

dmitchell08 – I used Adobe InDesign to create the logos, however it’s usually better to do these sorts of things in Illustrator. I don’t have Illustrator here at work, only InDesign and photoshop (I do have Illustrator at home though). If you only have powerpoint available to you, you could probably still create these with that program, although the logo with the curved text might be tricky. If you like any of these that I did for you, I’d be willing to give you the correct file type, I’m happy to help out at least one bride 🙂 Or, you could check out etsy, there are a bunch of designers there who will create custom monograms and I dont think they charge too much.
