I knew a woman who was getting married to a man named Andrew. Her name was Sue. His last name was saltman. aSs. How’s that one for ya? They chose a biblical quote instead of the monogram and played it up in photoshop. If you’ve ever seen the wordart page, it looked something like that. It was beautiful, I would recomend it.

Hi!

Monograms using your first names and wedding date are always really nice.  If you want to stick with the intials, I think the bride’s first name initial is supposed to go first, so your monogram would actually be CCG instead of GCC =)  I was playing around with illustrator and incorporated some stars with a flourish.  Do you like this style?

Let me know – I’d love to help out a boston bride.  If I’m on the right track, I’ll work with you on revisions and send you the monogram file.

You could just use the last initial and ignore the first ones or pick areally ornate script so that the G will seperate itself more.

You can also use a capital letter for the last initial and lowercase for the first initials. the g would stand out then.

I like your monogram. It seems flowy and pretty to me.

At my wedding we used a quote from ‘our song’. It was, "you’ve never been this loved". I loved that it meant something instead of just having our initials everywhere.

We are just using our first initials (L & R) in our monogram. I want to be able to use it for the invitations and stuff prior to the wedding and call me traditionalist, but since our monogram won’t officially be “our” monogram until after the wedding, we left the last initial out.

Do you have photoshop? You can make your G and C into a monogram by “interlocking” them so that they kinda overlap in a few areas, using a script font and a regular font. Then you can use different colors to make each letter distinct. Hope that makes sense. You can do a lot of creative stuff with photoshop & even powerpoint…

we also didn’t like the idea of a monogram plus i’m not taking his last name so the three letter traditional monogram didn’t suit us. we ended up just using our names _____ & _______ in a pretty font (monterey BT – the free and not as pretty version of the Feel script that everyone loves). I plastered that “monogram” everywhere along with our wedding date (in copperplate). Also, we had a dots theme so i threw in some dots in certain places… like at the beginning of my name and at the end of his. hope this helps. good luck!

first of all, thank you 🙂

I just used his first initial and my first because, similar to you, our monogram would be eRr… ERRRRRR no good. PM me if you want some design help 🙂

Why not just use your full first names and have some graphics?

A little late, but my suggestion would be to use your start motif throughout and not concentrate on the initials. Just find a star motif that you love and use it. That will tie everything together.

I was going to use a monogram for mine but it would of been BJJ. And I did not like that. BJ?!?! not cool. So i got a graphic designer to use our first names with our wedding date and a cute floral design. I think it worked out so much better. Maybe u should just use first names?
