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!

7 Cute Wedding Handkerchiefs You Can’t Resist

Hi, loves! Emma here. And, I’ll be honest: normally, a handkerchief isn’t my favorite thing in the world. I’m more of a tissue kind of girl. Call me new-fashioned but I like to blow my nose and then, you know, THROW IT AWAY. But I do love when wedding handkerchiefs are used in creative ways at weddings: for tears of joy favors, wrapped around your bouquet as something blue, or as gifts for the wedding party. I even love handkerchiefs on shoes. So, I get it: there are going to be happy tears a-flowin’ on your big day and you might as well have hankies at the ready. That makes total sense.

So, when I saw this ‘Hurry Up and Be My Husband Already‘ handkerchief (shown below, #1) over at The Polka Dotted Bee, I just had to look further into her hankie collection. And I couldn’t resist all the lovely finds there were! So today we’re sharing seven of them and I have to admit — I’m slowly becoming more of a hankie girl because these are just too cute to resist. You can even have custom hankies made FROM YOUR HANDWRITING, which is pretty amazing.

Bottom line? Even if you’re not on board with the whole hankie thing, you’ll totally love these personalized wedding handkerchiefs. Promise. See them for yourself, below!
