I was reading about monogram etiquette and it says that you shouldn’t use your married monogram until you’re officially married. I was thinking of having the FI’s last name initial on my bouquet wrap or a monogram bracelet. Is that a big no-no?

Well you don’t really use your bouquet after your walk down the aisle (assuming you take pictures before) so you’re not married at that time.
The only thing I had our monogram on was our chairs at the head table… for when we were actually MARRIED.

@MrsD2Be: Etiquette passes rulings on things you do that affect other people. Putting your married monogram on your invitations that go out before the wedding, for example, might confuse your guests into wondering whether you are already married. Putting your married monogram on something that only you will know about, is not the kind of thing on which etiquette is entitled to an opinion.
It sounds like a lovely keepsake.

If you want to do it that way, I think it’s fine. Etiquette is mostly about how you treat others. As your bouquet and bracelet aren’t greeting anyone or thanking people for coming, I don’t see how it could be seen as rude
I have no clue if there’s some superstitition against it, if you care about that stuff you might want to look into it more.

This isn’t really a monogram, per se but I’ve seen so many pics of the dressing dress hanging up on a hanger that says “Mrs. soandso”. You aren’t Mrs. anybody when you’re dress is hanging up before the wedding…but that’s only if you care to follow the rules about that kind of stuff. (You aren’t really Mrs. Anybody until you get your but down to the social security office, if you want to get picky).
