What better way to personalise and add special touches to your wedding day than to incorporate your initials as newlyweds.

Monograms are custom logos of your initials, typically the wife’s name on the left, husband’s on the right and the initial of the last name in the centre. These symbols have been around for centuries, starting as a way to identify belongings and a mark of aristocracy, before evolving as a display of your own personal identity and a physical representation of a couple’s union.

Monogrammed pieces can be passed down through generations, so it is definitely worth looking into how you can incorporate them in to your special day.

Here are a few of our favorite ideas:

On your wedding cake – either using your couple monogram, individual initials or even just your last initial.

Illuminated on the dance floor or as neon letter lights to make a bold statement as our Corinthia London couple Lauren & Andrew  did.

Or what about on your wedding favours!
