I'm going to be making wedding cookies with a monogram. I know that the last name initial goes in the middle, but what about the bride and groom's initials. Is there a right or wrong side to put theirs?

Thanks
Melissa

I believe the bride is to the left and the groom is to the right. Ladies first.................................I think! lol

I always get confused too. I think before the wedding the bride-to-be's initial goes first and after the wedding the groom's initial goes first......so groom's initial first for your cookies? You could always ask the customer which they prefer.

Before and during the wedding, the bride's initial goes first.

Just watch and make sure the monogram doesn't spell out anything. For example, I did a cake with the monogram "DNR"...meant nothing to me but every medical person that sees that cake knows it stands for "Do not Resuscitate" I did have the one that was "CPR" and I had them change it around.

Here is a pretty monogramed cookie.

If you don't have an airbrush, you could use the canned spray. I believe the spray is made by PME...I saw it for sale on eBay.HTH

Thanks for your replies. I did a little reserach and also talked with the bride. I'm going to free-hand them (wish me luck!). Planning on doing so practicing next week.
