I just didn't feel like paying $$$ for people to put letters in places. So I did this monogram tonight and was wondering if you guys can give me your honest opinion. (all FH said was "good hon")

.

If you like it and want me to help you make one --- feel free to ask. I have 3 years to plan the wedding....plenty of times to play around .. :P

I think it looks nice.  However, typically the bride's name is listed before the groom's.  (I did the exact same thing and my mom had to correct me.  :)  Otherwise, it looks great.  I did all of our stuff, and I am loving making my invites, programs, placecards, etc.  Some of our friends told me that it was too much work, but I got exactly what I wanted.  Well worth it!  (I say that now, but let's see what I say next week when I have to get the invites in the mail!  I"m about 60% ready for that!)

It's gorgeous!  I agree with the others, the first one looks better.

Personally, I think you have too much going on.- the big C in the background, the two names, the ampersand, the design underneath, and the date.

I think it looks beautiful... I actually did like alexanders name before yours because it balenced the design better, but since it's traditionally the other way.. .it's fine. I like that you have the ghosted initial in the background... it looks nicer to have the design rounded out rather than too horizontal.

Love 'em all!  Did you do this in Word or something else?

It looks great but I agree with ElvnBride I liked alexanders name before yours.  Looks better.  With your name first and all the other decor touches it looks too busy.  Have fun organising.
