Hey bees, I’m planning on DIY-ing our cake topper. Both FH and my initials are the exact same, including our middle name. What do you think we should put on our cake topper? I’m leaning toward just the last inital because I have a feeling the others may be doing too much. What are your thoughts?
First and Last Initial (J M)
Last Initial (M)
His First, Last, My First? (J M J)

I personally like the first, last, first! If you did only one J it would be almost like leaving one of you out!

I like JMJ best.
We were just browsing cake toppers and making a decision on which letters to choose for our topper. We’re going with CBJ…yep, they’re will be a BJ at our wedding.

@FewChaMrsBrown: LOL! I literally laughed out loud! I like the 3-letter but I thought it would look too over the top but now that I see you ladies approve I feel better about it. I’ll talk to FH and see what his final answer is 🙂

I love the idea of J M J but I have seen three-letter monogram cake toppers and sometimes (depending on the design) they look jumbled together and it is hard to make out the letters. But I have seen super nice ones too!
I think since your initials are the exact same, the J M J is fitting!

JMJ2 :D! (ETA: That was supposed to be to the 2nd power. It shows up fine in the edit screen, but not on the thread for some reason, so I just changed it to a regular 2 for the thread.)

Depends on how big your cake is. We had a small wedding and our cake was only 2 teirs so we only had the last initial. If you cake is large then maybe the last option would be best!

I just thought that if I put my Fiance’s and I’s last initials together you get
S & M

J M J has cute symmetry to it

@OhsoLovely: Just an FYI, when you do a couple’s monogram, it’s YOUR first initial, your shared last initial, then HIS first initial. In this case, it doesn’t matter because you have the same initial.
Anyway, I like options two and three.

If you look here it seems that the first last first is the most common
Just as a side note– depending on what you plan on doing, you might want to look at this site. The prices are the best you will find (other wedding sites buy from this company). I’ve bought jewelry from here and it’s good quality.
