“Where is my wedding monogram??” he shouted at the top of his voice. “I thought I made it clear that I wanted a personalized album. Oh man! My wife is going to kill me!”
Wondering who is shouting at whom? This is a newlywed groom. Let me explain… few months back I attended a wedding ceremony of a friend. The occasion was beautifully organized by one of the local wedding planners, mywedding.com, he had hired. A couple of weeks after that, he and I went to pick up his wedding album.
I could see the excitement on his face all the way as he kept on saying,
“Man I can’t wait to see my wedding album. I asked the photographer to personalize it for me.”
His excitement soon turned into rage when we reached the studio and the photographer handed him the wedding album. What surprised me most was that he didn’t even open the album before getting angry.
That is when I realized just how important wedding monograms have become to brides and grooms nowadays.
Wedding Monogram – The ‘Special Touch’:
The wedding day is without a doubt the most special day in anybody’s life. This is the day when every woman feels like a ‘Princess’ waiting for her ‘Prince Charming’ to walk down the aisle.
Having a very own personalized wedding monogram (with initials intermingled in an imperial typescript) gives them the ‘royal feeling’ they always dreamt about for their special day. For a wedding planner/photographer, it is essential to acknowledge this special need if you are to satisfy your clients.
How a Wedding Monogram Adds Value:
Couples nowadays expect to get a wedding monogram when they hire a wedding planner/photographer. Even if they don’t, adding a wedding monogram can give your services the ‘extra edge’ to make it distinct and unique. Of course, you wouldn’t want all your efforts organizing the entire event go to waste just because you overlooked the importance of a wedding monogram.

It also works as a wonderful prelude for the bride and groom giving them their own personalized and unified identity.
2. Cake Topper:

You can give your client’s wedding cake a sense of uniqueness by adding their wedding monogram. This could either be placed as a cake topper or engraved on the sides of the cake. Alternately, you can also suggest the couple to have the cake designed completely in the shape of their monogram.
