monogram etiquette and fonts

for a married couple:

traditionally, the couple’s monogram will be the bride’s initials in the order of her first name, married last name, maiden name. Laura Smith Keaton’s monogram would read LKS

currently the most popular monogram for married couples combines the bride and groom’s initials in the order of her first name, their married last name, his first name. Laura and Henry Keaton’s shared monogram would be LKH

for our arial elm monogram the women’s first name initial will be stacked on top of the man’s first name initial, both appearing to the left of the married last name initial.  Laura and Henry Keaton’s shared monogram would be LHK with the L being stacked on the H and the larger K to the right of the stacked initials.

for women:

a married woman’s monogram is traditionally in the order of her first name, married last name, maiden name. so Laura Smith Keaton’s monogram would read LKS

an unmarried woman’s monogram is traditionally in the order of her first name, last name, middle name. Ashley Marie Smith’s monogram would be ASM

for men:

a man’s monogram can be in the order of his first name, middle name, last name. for Henry Jonathan Keaton this would read HJK

a man’s monogram also can appear in the order of his first name, last name, middle name. for Henry Jonathan Keaton this would read HKJ

monogram rules for young ladies and men are the same as those for adults.
