Just wanted to make sure which letters go on top of the cake for a wedding? what order?
Don't understand your question. Sorry. Do you mean if you have two letters which should be positioned higher???
A monogram for two people, the letters are entered as follows: bride's first name initial, the new last name initial, groom's first name initial.. The new last name initial always goes in the middle (and is larger).
I found this on a website. HTH.
the Woman's first initial on the left
the couple's last name initial in the middle
the Man's first initial on the right
John and Sally Doe would be:
S D J
agree with the above, however, I always made the bride spell it out which way she wanted it. If she asked which way was 'correct', I'd tell her "...TRADITIONALLY, it's done this way ....." but always left it up to her.
I just didn't want to have a bride be ticked at ME because I put them on right and SHE didn't know that was the right way.
You know ... the 'ole "CYA Method"!!
Funny and true story from last week.
couple met with me and ordered the monograms I sell. I ordered what they specified. Got to the reception, set up the cake, put the 3 letter monogram on top. Groom's mother came over and said, "I guess the groom forgot to mention that he changed his last name?"
Well, yes . . . yes, he did forget to mention it.
"Oh well" she shrugged. I left it.
