im planning on ordering my
bridesmaids customized monogrammed clutches. I have a bridesmaid who is getting married next September, would I do her last name now, or her future last name since her wedding date is only 11 months after when sje will relieve it!

If it were me (and I’m getting married in 12 months), I’d rather have my future initials on the clutch.
There’s nothing wrong with having my current initials on it if you feel more comfortable, I woudln’t be upset to see my current initials. I just know I would be super happy and it would make me feel great to see my future intials.

If you’re 110% sure she is taking his name, I would go for it.

KapOct18: I’d probably do her current initials since her wedding is almost a year away. That said my friend gave me a bridesmaid gift bag with my new initials on it and I loved it, but I got married less than a month after her.

I would make sure that she is taking his last name. If so and it were me, I would love to see my new initials, even if it is still almost a year away. 🙂

Can’t you just ask her what she’d prefer? Everyone is different. If it were me I’d just tell my bridesmaid that I’m planning on giving her something monogramed (you don’t have to tell her what it is) and you were wondering what initials she’d like to have.

KapOct18: Just ask her. Personally, I’d want my new initals because it seems super silly to spend money on something you know will basically be obsolete in a year.

agree with starfish! just ask her! it would suck to get something that she might really like and not have her new initials on it. its like a gift with an expiration date.
