14 Monogram Gift Ideas That Will Make the Best Day Ever

** Giveaway inside!

Hi, loves! Emma here. One reason why we’re so in love with handmade weddings is because they’re so detail-obsessed. Each detail in a handcrafted wedding is lovingly pieced together, whether created by your own two hands or lovingly made by a professional artisan. The outcome is a more beautiful and personalized wedding day from start to finish.

One of the easiest ways to add a personal touch to your decor is by using your monogram. Your monogram is your own personal stamp, which can be used throughout including bridal accessories, wedding invitations, favors, decorations, and more. You can use a three-letter monogram (with your initials and first letter of your last name combined together, like mine — EAA) or your last initial (mine — A), whichever you prefer.

Today we’re sharing a handful of our favorite monogram wedding ideas to make your wedding stand out. We’ve found cake toppers, custom cufflinks, decor pieces, and jewelry, with a little something for everyone. There’s even a monogram cowgirl hat for rustic brides! Plus, we’ve teamed up with Advantage Bridal to give away one personalized bridal gift to a lucky reader as our latest wedding giveaways. Find out what it is below!

Beatles Wedding Cake Topper — #HANDMADEADAY

Good Morning, Emma here! I once attended a wedding where two incredibly sweet Beatles fans wed and they included Beatles-inspired finds everywhere. They had Beatles seating cards, their favorite songs on rotation, and they had table names — Beatles song titles — instead of numbers. They even had a rule where an entire table had to serenade the bride and groom to get them to kiss (instead of the traditional clanking of glass or ringing of bells). I loved it. So when I spotted this Beatles wedding cake topper with the iconic lyrics Here Comes the Sun, I immediately thought of Paula & Tim. And this cake topper isn’t limited to this song lyric alone — you can pick ANYTHING to top your cake. What would YOURS say?

50+ Greatest Geeky Wedding Ideas of All Time

Calling all engaged nerds! And, we say that, of course, with the greatest affection. One of the wedding themes that doesn’t get nearly enough attention is an offbeat wedding. An offbeat wedding is non-traditional and includes creative touches to really bring out two people’s quirky personalities.

Geeky weddings are pretty amazing.

Nerdy, geeky, offbeat weddings are some of our favorites because there are SO MANY insanely creative ideas out there. In today’s post, we’ve rounded up fifty (plus!) greatest geeky wedding ideas of all time including finds from Harry Potter, Star Trek, Star Wars, Doctor Who, The Big Bang Theory, Lord of the Rings, The Hunger Games, Minecraft, and Game of Thrones, just to name a few. We’ve found a couple battling it out with light sabers in the form of a cake topper, a Harry Potter necklace gift for the groom to his bride, a set of Superhero garters for the entire bridal party to wear, a bracelet set for Game of Thrones enthusiasts, wedding art prints for your future Harry Potter decked out home, cuff links, wedding gift ideas, and more. Let’s just say we’ve found SO MUCH geeky goodness in this post and we are so delighted to share it with you. Plus, these are all handmade via Etsy (US). Anyways, grab your favorite coffee mug (like this, which is totally amazing) and let’s get to it!
