Q: My name is Gretchen, and my fiancé is Sam Ashford. Our monogram—don't laugh—will be "GAS." Please tell me we have other options for the cake and invites!

A: You have other options! You could go with something contemporary, like "G&S," or use the letter "A" on its own. Or skip the lettered look altogether and use an image (like a sailboat or horses) that means something to the two of you.
