Here is a brief explanation of today's monogram etiquette:
1. Monogramming for Married Couple Options:
A popular option today is for married couples to combine the bride and groom's initials in the following order, her first name, married last name, his first name. Example: Jody and Mike Wright would look like JWM.
A second option is a more traditional couples' method. This involves the bride's initials in the order of her first name, married last name, maiden name. Example: Jody Smith Wright would look like JWS.
2. Monogramming for Women - Married/Unmarried Options:
A married woman’s monogram is commonly placed in the order of her first name, married last name, maiden name. Example: Jody Smith Wright would look like JWS.
An unmarried woman’s monogram is commonly placed in the order of her first name, last name, middle name. Example: Courtney Elizabeth Wright would look like CWE.
3. Monogramming for Men:
Here we use a modern approach to personalizing items for men and place letters in order of first name, last name, middle name. A popular approach is to use one initial for the last name as well.
Example: Frank Lee Smith would look like FSL. The other option would be to use last name letter only. Example: S
4. Monogramming for Children/Baby:
Kids use the same monogram guidelines for adults.
