Monogram Guide

Selecting a Monogram 

When purchasing a monogrammed gift the style and order of initials varies. Below we have listed some general guidelines to make ordering the right monogram easier for you:

 

Monogramming for Women

Monograms for women should include her first, middle, and last initial or if she is married, her first, maiden name, and married name initials. Traditionally, a woman's monogram is presented in first, last, middle initial order. 

Monogramming for Men

When monogramming something for a man, many people prefer to use the initials in the first, middle and last order. However, it is also correct to put the male's last name initial in the middle. When it comes to choosing the format for a male, it comes down to personal preference. 

Monogramming for Couples

The monogram will contain the bride's first initial, the surname of the couple, and the groom's first initial, in that order.
