I found invitations I love, but they’re way too expensive, so to jazz up some less expensive ones, I’m buying a wax sealer and sealing the envelopes with a single letter monogram. My question is this: Do I use the letter of MY last name (and my parents, who are technically “throwing the wedding”) or the last name of the man I’m marrying, whose name I am taking?
Same goes for an invitation that has a monogram letter in it — which last name do I use?

You use your FI’s/your new last name.

I’ve heard you are not “supposed” to use your FI’s last inital until after you are married. But we did a wax seal on our invitations and I thought It would be strange to have my/my parents last name inital on it (eventhough, like you, they are technically hosting the wedding), so we did FI’s last name inital “R” and I was happy with it.

I think it’s tricky if your parents are paying for the wedding, since the invitation is technically from them, as well as you guys, but just using yours kind of excludes your fiance! What about using a symbol instead of a letter, like a heart or an ampersand? That way you can jazz up the invitations without stepping on anyone’s toes!

Hello! thanks for the feedback! What a great idea about using a symbol!
