Monogramming Guidelines & Etiquette
A traditional monogram is a person’s first, married, maiden initial. The below example would be for Mary Green Liles.

etiq1

Traditionally, the monogram consists only of the women’s initials, with the married surname initial in the middle.

For the modern monogram that incorporates the bride and her groom’s first initial, the proper order would be wife’s first, married surname, husband’s first. The below example would be for Mary and Jeff Liles.

etiq2

You can create a 1-letter monogram by using the married surname initial. You can add embellishments to this 1-letter design to create your own monogram.

etiq3

You can create a monogram by using a person’s last name only.

etiq4

You can use a house number, street address, or the married couple’s new name or wedding date. The below examples would be for Mary and Jeff Liles/18 Seaboard Avenue/wedding date November 22, 1997.

*** MR & MRS. JEFFREY K. LILES ***
Est. 1997

*** 18 Seaboard Avenue ***


Always remember, linens for the bride, and barware for the groom.
