Wednesday Wedding Wishes, No. 49

Monograms & Mimosa's

Are you looking to do something a little different for a bridal shower? We were recently told about a shower being given that was a brunch time event, hence the mimosa's, centered around the bride and groom's soon to be monogram. We LOVE anything monogrammed, so of course we loved the idea. You can incorporate your new monogram into several items on your registry without having it feel overdone. For example, register for your china as a complete set, then add an extra set of salad plates that have your monogram on them. This way you can use those special plates when you want to add a little extra to your table for a holiday or to celebrate your anniversary. We had a bride use a monogrammed linen napkin on her head table at the wedding reception, it was a lovely touch. Because her head table was large, she ended up with a nice set of 20 napkins she now uses at her dining table.

Are you a baker, then maybe having a single monogrammed cake pedestal and dome would be something that tickles your fancy.

If you love to entertain, maybe adding your monogram to your bar mixing tools would be a nice addition to your bar!

Remember you can make your monogram as elaborate as you want. From the three letter monogram (brides first initial, Last name, grooms first initial), ex. KFJ or just your single monogram, ex. H. Make it fun and mix it up!

Happy shower planning & monogramming!
