So now that it's time for me to start thinking about what will make our wedding more "us" I naturally started to wonder if I'd want a monogram. At first, I kind of rolled my eyes at the idea of having a big A and B with an even bigger K (my new last name) in the middle. But as I started to see the creative uses of initials, my skeptisim yielded.
the traditional three-initial monogram
Once I started looking into the world of three (or two) lettered-goodness, I was amused to learn that there is actual monogram etiquitte. Did you know some consider it a faux-pas to use your monogram on anything before you are actually married (aka invites, shower decor, aisle runner). Who knew? I tend to be a rule-breaker, so that wont stop me if I so choose to use a monogram. But it did get me thinking about what our monogram would be?

Yet, one of my absolute favorites is wedding twin's! Check out her amazing monogram. She turned their two first initials so that both K's together would look like their last initial, M. I'm loving the personalization of the personalization!
Isn't it amazing? Now that I've looked at a nice range, I'm leaning toward both letters being lower cased, with an ampersand. I wold love to include some sort of emblem (once I decide what that is exactly) such as as flower, leaf, foilage or even scrollwork like Kate's .
