Monograms will always hold a special place in my heart. When I first started out in the wedding stationery world, custom monogram designs were my only offering. So it’s no surprise that I’m absolutely delighted when a couple wants to add a monogram to their wedding stationery! The vintage interlocking monogram style on this design is the perfect finishing touch to a traditional wedding invitation for a southern bride.
While the design itself is simple, elegant details elevate this to a classic stationery suite befitting a black tie wedding.
Rather than the traditional black and white, we opted for a soft gray letterpress ink on thick, soft white cotton paper. The subdued monochromatic color scheme let the beauty of the letterpress printing take center stage!
The reply card features the same gray letterpress ink on cotton paper.
Traditionally, the monogram included on a wedding invitation will feature the bride and groom’s first initials only — no last initial in the monogram until after the wedding ceremony! I love the details on this vintage monogram: from the shading and embellishments on the letters to the interlocking style – a perfectly traditional monogram design that looks stunning in letterpress (or embroidered on your linens after the wedding!)
A strip of raw edge silk ribbon is tied in a knot around the invitation suite to keep all the pieces together. For the envelope liner, we chose a vintage inspired pattern featuring hand-drawn roses in dark gray and white.
