Although monograms date back to about 350 BC, I am happy to say they are still going strong in the world of weddings. In the hands of a designer monograms can go from plain and boring to real head turners. Monograms add a classic and elegant look to invitations but I like to add a little modern twist to give them some style. The picture below has a Swarovski Crystal adding some sparkle to the swirl underneath the monogram. Many couples use their custom designed monogram as the logo or symbol of their wedding. The seal featured below always gets a great reaction when I display it at bridal shows and it makes a great closure for a pocket invitation.
