Having your initials included in your wedding day can really make the whole day feel more special and unique. It gives proceedings a very personal touch and that’s so important when it comes to your wedding day décor. Whether you decide to go all out and get a monogram designed, or you want a subtle touch, there’s plenty of ways to have fun with your initials.
If you are getting a special monogram designed then make the most of it, and use it on your invites, your orders of service, an aisle runner maybe, lighting in your décor and even your centrepieces.
Of course you don’t have to go into quite so much detail, oversized light up letters for example are a super popular way of using your initials and it also looks stunning in your photos. Smaller touches are very heartfelt too, for example initials stitched into the underside of the brides dress or the grooms tie are a very personal way to honour your wedding day that’s almost a secret for the couple alone to enjoy.

A Big Impact
Why not go big with your initials? Think about everything from oversized letters, to light up letters, banners, initials bunting or hanging initials, big initial balloons or even large initials covered in florals? They all make a great impact and will double up as fantastic props for your wedding photos as well!
Let there be light
GOBO lighting, literally stands for Go Before Optics and essentially allows you to project your initials, or indeed anything, onto your wedding venues walls, floors and backdrops in lights. It works incredibly well for initials and looks truly stunning in your venue.
Around the room
You don’t have to go with something big to make an impact when it comes to initials. Think about using small chalkboards with your initials as your table centrepieces, smaller bookend size initials on your guestbook table, your monogram or initials on top of or incorporated into the cake and don’t forget initials on the back of the couples wedding chairs too!
Sometimes, keeping things small and simple makes the biggest of impacts, so think about having your initials on items such as the grooms’ cufflinks, or secret stitching on the back of the grooms tie on the underside of the brides dress for a little treat only the two of you are in on – these also look great in the photos. Also think about initials on the bride’s bouquet and on the ring pillow or box.
