Monograms can be a beautiful extra touch to your wedding invites. However, there are some things that you should consider before choosing this type of addition.
Adding a monogram to your wedding invites can give them an extra touch of elegance and beauty. However, they aren’t for everyone. Certain things should be taken into account before springing for this extra. Here are some tips to help you decide if adding a monogram to your wedding invites is right for you.
The Theme or Style of Your Wedding Invites
Before adding a monogram to your wedding invites, carefully consider the theme or style of your wedding invites. Not all wedding invites will look better with a monogram. This can be especially true if you are going for a vintage look. Vintage styles tend to be more simplistic. Adding a monogram to vintage wedding invites can throw off the look, and couples often regret adding the monogram.
Can You Afford the Cost?
Monogrammed invites often cost more than invites without monograms. The price can be anywhere from a few extra pennies to an extra dollar, depending on the type of monogram you choose. Carefully consider your budget and whether or not a monogram really fits within that budget. If you cannot afford a monogram but really want to add that touch of beauty to your wedding invites, consider assembling your own bow or wrapping them in tissue paper yourself.
Does the Monogram Suit the Colors?
While monograms can be found in a wide variety of colors, they are not always offered in colors that match your invites. To find a monogram that matches your colors, you might end up paying a higher price at a different vendor. Carefully look at the invite and the monogram to decide if the colors complement each other. Some sites will actually allow you to see your completed wedding invite, monogram and all. This can be extremely helpful in deciding whether or not adding a monogram to your wedding invites is the right choice.
While adding a monogram to your wedding invites may not be the biggest part of choosing your design, it can really make an impact on the overall look.
