There are a few things that really make marriage feel official: your first ring tan line, when your marriage license arrives in the mail, and seeing your official monogram for the first time. A monogram is the perfect visual representation of your two names (and lives) growing together into one beautiful composition. But how do you get a monogram? It all starts with a graphic designer and Penelope from DesigningLove is our absolute fave!

The Process

According to Penelope, the perfect monogram captures so much more than just your initials, it reflects both of your unique personalities and your relationship as a whole. She describes her aesthetic as “modern, elegant simplicity with a minimalist vibe and sophistication”, a vibe we can all get down with. First, she meets with her couples to get to know them. She also learns about your wedding design so that she can incorporate that into your monogram too. Then the real work begins. She carefully crafts two design concepts and works closely with the couple to select the one that fits them best and iron out the details like the font. Once it’s finalized, your monogram is digitized and yours to keep to use for the rest of your happily ever after.
