123 MONOGRAMS | Delicate Pen


BY jane, ON Friday, April 8, 2011

I love monograms, where a letter, or a few letters shine alone in their Ta Da moment. I collect all sort of monograms-on towels, notepads, vintage kerchiefs-whether or not the initials are my own.  A monogram is certainly the most special, however, when the letters are actually yours. Especially when the monogram becomes your signature together as a newly wedded couple. The Royal Wedding invitation, however, features the grandmother of the groom’s monogram! I can pronounce that I have never been requested to do that! The royal monogram is certainly grand and has that traditional royal presence,  but don’t you think Talia and Seth’s monogram was more personal and romantic!? It is intriguing to see that the Queen herself has to command someone else to actually do the inviting. Those royals! I am sure the calligraphy on the guest lines will be lovely, but oh, I am just itching to paint a watercolor blossom on this to spruce it up!

JoVon Photography took some beautiful black and white photos of Talia and Seth‘s wedding, held at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in New York. I love monograms, and so I am always excited when I have the opportunity to design one for a new couple. A monogram is such a romantic touch.  The entwining letters are so symbolic of the two lives that will also interlace. One way to feature a monogram is on a program cover, such as this.

Monograms are just so personal and lovely.

I love that the invitation got its own pre-wedding moment! The bride in her white ensemble seems so relaxed and happy!
