Monogrammed Napkins & More Ideas for Making Your Wedding Personalized

17 Apr

Your wedding date is on the calendar! Congratulations! Now for the fun part—planning the perfect day!

You want your wedding day to reflect the extraordinary love that you share with your soon-to-be spouse (and your exquisite taste!) in all the details, big and small. No matter the size of your guest list or budget, you can personalize your wedding day in ways that are meaningful and memorable.

As you develop your wedding theme, flowers, colors and reception menu, keep an eye out for opportunities to personalize the details. From monogrammed wedding cocktail napkins to personalized party favor boxes, you will love how your wedding day becomes more and more “you,” and your guests will love the attention you pay to all the details of your big day. Here at For Your Party, we love giving brides creative freedom to personalize their wedding day.

Monogrammed Everything!

One look that will never go out of style is the monogram! It’s a timeless way to add your personal touch to almost anything wedding related.  

Love the monogrammed look, but wanting to go more boho than traditional? Use the FYP Customizer to create personalized wedding items that coordinate with the vision you have for your wedding day. A classic monogrammed napkin can easily get a modern boho backyard wedding upgrade with one of our exclusive patterned napkin designs.

While the classic 3 initial monogram is a forever favorite, we’re also seeing a lot of modern uses of initials that offer an on-trend look. A fresh take on the monogram is to use the bride and groom’s first initials, joined by an ampersand or plus sign. Crisp and clean, it’s a great option, especially for brides who choose not to change their last name.

No need to stop with a monogrammed wedding napkin. Essentially, any product that For Your Party customizes can be monogrammed! From napkins to cups, shot glasses to stir sticks, a monogram looks great on them all. Many of the products that used at your wedding also have an extra measure of staying power when personalized with your monogram. An extra stack of monogrammed guest towels can easily transition to sentimental hospitality items in your new home.

Cups and Napkins—Classic Choices

No matter the size or formality of your wedding reception, personalized cups and napkins are a must-have! As you consider how you want to personalize your napkins and cups, you’ll want to first decide on what type of cups you’ll need, based on if you are serving hot beverages, signature cocktails, and/or champagne, as well as what napkin sizes you will need, based on if you are serving passed appetizers or a formal dinner in addition to your wedding cake. Once you know what variety of sizes and styles you’ll be needing, the personalization can begin! Don’t let the details bog you down—here at For Your Party, you can easily create your primary design and then use our “bundling” option to translate it from napkins and cups to your other personalized items.

Custom designed wedding napkins are a lovely way to add a touch of personalization to your wedding day. For Your Party custom napkins for your wedding come in a variety of sizes, colors and luxury finishes that give you the creative freedom to design something truly unique.

Personalized cocktail napkins are often the first custom bar accent a bride will consider. Choose classic white or cream colored napkins or go with a bolder accent color to really make a statement. This watercolor hibiscus napkin with a matte ivory vines monogram is a beautiful alternative to a traditional personalized wedding cocktail napkin, while still perfectly elegant!

Serving coffee or warm cider at your autumn wedding reception? Or craft beer on tap at your summer beach wedding? Or maybe a signature cocktail? You can choose a wedding cup for any type of beverages you may serve, and personalize each cup to match any wedding theme.

Custom designed frosted plastic cups are an elegant and versatile choice. They can be printed on 2 sides, giving you the freedom to print your wedding monogram on one side and feature your names and your wedding date on the other.A tiny-sized personalized cup that can serve quite a few purposes is a custom designed plastic shot glass. Of course, it can be used for, ahem, it’s original purpose—but there are some fun ways to diversify! Personalized wedding shot glasses are a surprisingly practical and clever way to serve cute mini desserts or to serve nuts or mints to keep them from sliding all over your guests’ appetizer plates. (It's happened to all of us!)

It’s in the Details—Sparkler Sleeves, Wedding Favor Boxes, and Personalized Tea Favors

Once you have your personalized wedding designs created for your napkins and cups, it’s time to think about how you can personalize the “little things.” It’s often the little things that truly pull together the grand wedding theme you are aiming for. Personalized sparkler sleeves, wedding favor boxes and custom designed tea sleeves are a few small, but memorable ways you make your wedding details as unique as your love story.

Sparkler sleeves
Wanting to do a sparkler send-off, and ensure it goes smoothly?  For Your Party has customized sparkler sleeve designs that are not only stylish but can also include what time the send-off will be! Your guests will appreciate knowing what time to gather and send off the happy couple in a blaze. Choose a monogram design that coordinates with your wedding theme or choose a design that says “let love sparkle.”  

Wedding favor boxes and tags
As you decide on exactly which wedding favors you will offer, don’t neglect to consider their presentation. Bite-sized baklava served in a monogrammed truffle box or delicious cake pops in a customized cellophane bag add an even sweeter touch to wedding goodies. Personalized gift tags can be attached to almost any wedding favor, and of course, there are always personalized wine tags to attach to thank you bottles of champagne or wine.

As you contemplate how you and your spouse-to-be want to personalize your wedding day, remember to have fun and be true to you! Personalized style is just that—personalized! Embrace your opportunity to choose customized items that bring a smile to your faces. Go with a punny cocktail napkin design if it makes you laugh, or tip your hat to your favorite team with your color combinations. The options are practically endless, so enjoy creating!
