Bowery Hotel Wedding

A big congratulations to Jamie & Bobby on their Bowery Hotel wedding this weekend! The Bowery Hotel is such a romantic setting for an NYC wedding, and we think the invitations set the tone. Jamie & Bobby used our Elegant Monogram design, minus the monogram, making it a classic design with a double border. The navy ink with navy envelope liners is very striking on warm white paper. And we always love printing custom thank you notes for after the wedding. These are so sweet, with a vintage illustration of a writing hand.

Monograms Part II

Sticking with the monograms theme this month, we wanted to share some options for incorporating these on wedding stationery. Monograms are one of our favorite design elements to print. They add a decorative detail and a sophisticated elegance to wedding invitations. Plus, the design can be carried through all of the wedding stationery, from thank you note cards to programs and menus.

We recommend couples adhere to traditional etiquette, noting that the bride’s initials come first on the stationery until the wedding has taken place. After the ceremony, the groom’s initials may come first (on the menu, escort cards and thank you notes) and/or the couple can use their shared last name, if relevant.

Even simple initials like this L + A (below) can elevate items like escort cards or menus and give the stationery a personal feel.

This couple opted for the nautical flags in lieu of letters.
