bee honest 🙂
i like the idea of this burlap band around the invitation and the joining piece this gal created (see 1st photo) but I created some my own pieces (2nd photo) and I’d love to hear fellow bees perspective on this:
‘H’ is my finances initial to his last name and will also become my last name..
There is a lot of pride in their family last name, and very little to none in my current last name (just because of all of the blending within my families..for example, growing up, only 1 of my sisters and I had this last name), so I know his family would adore the ‘h’ and the excitement I express in joining the family, but do you guys/gals think my family might be offended by it?
Or is the overall idea weird?
thanks for the feedback!

I don’t think there is anything weird since you are going to have the same last name after marriage.

I don’t see what the big deal is. Even if your family were to get offended by it, they’d forget about it in a day or so lol. I think it’s cute! He is the man so you’ll be taking his name anyway. Makes sense for the ‘H’.

I don’t find it weird or offensive. The only way I think it could be a problem would be if your family assumed you were changing your name because it’s uncommon in your family.

I’m not sure I understand. Are you considering NOT using the burlap band and the M+A shown in the first pic and instead using the “h” tags somehow? If so, how would you use it? Would it be fuchsia as it is currently shown?

@Brielle: I’d like to use the burlap band, but instead of the MA in the first photo, I’d use the H that I created. I’d put the where the other gal has the MA heart on hers. Does that make sense?

We used W on absolutely every piece of our wedding stationary because it’s his last name (and now mine!). Everyone thought it was really cute. We even had a friend make a huge wooden W we put on the fireplace we got married in front of that now hangs in our house!

@KellyMarie9713: Yes. That’s what I thought you were suggesting, but I just wanted to make sure I understood correctly.
I like the idea of using an “h,” but I love the execution of the current M+A. In other words, I don’t think I would like the fuchsia “h” nearly as much as I like the burlap-colored M+A. However, I think using an “h” in the same style, paper and color as the M+A would be great.

we actually did our invites on vistaprint like this other gal (very similar color and style) and there is a J+K on our printed invites, so we definitely got that part covered!
thanks so much for all the feedback! I had originally asked some girls at work about it and they looked at me weird.. Maybe I didn’t explain it clearly. 🙂 Thanks again!

I like the style of the m+h for the example shown. It fits more with the burlap( m+h) but I don’t think a single letter looks bad either. Are you using the pink fuchsia with burlap? That could look a little funny IMO.

I have no problem with the H apart from that what you have done already looks much better.
