Southern Traditions Part II

6) The Monogram: If it stands still long enough, a southern girl will monogram it! Everything from beverage napkins, aisle runners, cake-toppers and signs! And of course wax seals…. Need I say more?



What is a monogram? “A monogram tells a story. It suggests who we are or want to be, puts forth our views on marriage, tradition, and individual identity not to mention the wonderful things it does for linens, stationery and silverware.

A monogram consists of a person’s initials — usually a variation on the first, middle, and last name.” At weddings, the initial typically goes the wife’s first, married last, husband’s first.
