Magnificent Monograms

When I was a little girl, I spent endless hours daydreaming as a practiced my signature with the last name of my latest crush.  I also avoided writing class notes while I doodled my future initials into a notebook.  I don’t know why, but there is something about sharing a man’s initials that sets some girls over the moon. Perhaps that’s why monograms remain a classic wedding decor element.

If you’re looking for the perfect way to put the stamp of your new initials on your wedding, check out some of these ideas below:

A Fresh Approach to Fresh Flowers!

By guest blogger Geeta Sachdeva

A popular Men’s Wearhouse commercial suggests that the groom rent a fine suit because “…when everyone is looking at the bride, she will be looking at him.” While it is true that the bride and groom are the center of attention at any wedding, the decorations form another important part of the ceremony and can be a great way to express your style and taste.

When it comes to the altar, most brides have some idea of the effect they want to achieve. However, paying attention to the other details, like the entrance to the cathedral or the aisle, can fully complete the look of your decorations. Here are some tips for decorating the aisle, entrance and pews of your wedding ceremony:

Aisle: Custom painted aisle runners with your monogram or a meaningful quote make a deeply personal statement. They instantly dress up the space, and stylishly demarcate the path for the bridal party to walk up to the altar.

Pews: Flower-filled baskets, buckets or small wooden umbrellas can be suspended above the pews with ribbon. You can even shape a large tropical leaf to form a pocket that you can fill with a few delicate flowers, or attach a single large bloom (my absolute favorite right now is a lime green hydrangea) with a satin or organza bow.

Entrance: Line the steps leading up to the church or other venue with tall plants or ferns in terracotta pots. Then, adorn the doorway with a wreath made of the same flowers that are in the bride’s bouquet.

Another nice finishing touch is to hand out sprigs of fragrant herbs or flowers along with the wedding program, and explain its significance on a small card like these Garden Place Cards from Wedding Paper Divas.
