Monogramming Convention Questions…
I have been reading the lastest magazine and was inspired by the article about monogramming and was quite inspired, especially for wedding presents…though I think I am a bit lazy…I’m liable to use the machine embroidery utility!
One question I have–when it’s for a couple, what monogram do I use? I know in my grandmother’s day, the only monogram was a bride’s maiden name–that convention seems very out of date, but I don’t know what the current trend is…Presumably both members of the new couple will be sleeping under my nice monogrammed sheets!
Let’s say Jane Elizabeth Doe is marrying Mark Herbert Smith… Assuming the bride adopts the groom’s last name, is a correct monogram for both of them something like jSm (putting smaller versions of their first initials on both sides of their new last name)?
And what the heck do you do if the bride does not take the groom’s last name?
