A Vintage Monogram for Invitations

In wedding invitations, a very classic way to personalize the design is through the use of a vintage logo such as a classic monogram. Most couples now choose to use the first letters of their first names in the monogram, instead of the classic three-letter monogram. This is a modern twist on a vintage style. In the EL or LE logo below, the monogram is done in classic gold with black print, but many other colors can keep the same kind of style, such as navy and gold.

Digital prints of this EL Monogram or LE Monogram design can be found here: EL Monogram LE Monogram Collection. If you’d like a custom print in letterpress or foil please contact us.

For the wedding below, Emily and Lawrence are using the first letters of their first name in a lovely EL (or LE) duogram. Often the use of a vintage monogram is an indication that this is a more formal and traditional wedding. This is not necessarily true, but other indicators will be the wedding venue, other accessories, and any indication of the dress code for the event.

Monogrammed Cards

Personal stationery cards are also a great place to use an EL monogram (or LE monogram) when it’s time to give a formal or classic touch to a special note. Or, as an elegant thank you note for wedding gifts. It’s also an excellent monogram present, as a timeless card like this can be used for years to come.

Selecting a Vintage Monogram

An elegant and classic decoration for a wedding invitation is a vintage monogram like this MB monogram (or BM monogram) that was printed in gold on this traditional wedding invitation. The M and the B are interlocked together, in an artistic embrace representing the first names of each of the couple. A monogrammed invitation is a way to show the uniting of two people into one symbol. It’s also beautiful artwork that can be used on lots of different wedding items, like the invitations, cocktail napkins, coasters, and thank you cards.

When it was time for Anna and Christopher to be married, they wanted to have a classic monogram, but also wanted to be able to read the letters. Many times, the really old monogram style is impossible to read well. An AC CA monogram like this is a modern take on a vintage style. The same monogram can be used on other items like thank you cards and menus for your wedding, or just as a way to send a nice note to a friend or family member.
