Bright Maine Barn Wedding – Kate and Whitney were married at The Barn on Walnut Hill in North Yarmouth, Maine on August 22. This couple said “I do” in a beautiful wooded setting, which was followed by a reception in the venue’s barn. They added cheerful pops of color and playful prints to create a whimsical vibe. We love the groom’s floral-patterned tie!

Autumn Michigan Backyard Wedding – Megan and Jason were married at their home in Muskegon, Mich. on October 17. They kicked off the wedding in an unexpected way: by serving cocktails and dinner before the ceremony! After they said “I do,” the newlyweds partied all night long with their guests and golden retrievers, Charlie and Leonard. Who can resist such a sweet puppy face?

Introducing…The WeddingWire Monogram Generator

Posted by Kim on Jun 17, 2016

wedding-monogram-generator-weddingwireThe great thing about a wedding monogram is that you can use it in so many different ways throughout your wedding and beyond, from invitations to thank-you cards, decor and more. And now it’s easier than ever to create a monogram that’s both unique to you and your spouse, and fits your wedding style. With the brand-new WeddingWire Monogram Generator, simply enter your and your future spouse’s initials (you can put your first initials in boxes 1 and 2, and, if you’d like, a joint last initial as well), and then choose a color that matches your wedding day color scheme. And, voila! You’ll receive 40 different monogram options to choose from, which you can then download and use however you’d like. While you’re at it, take a picture of the creative ways you’re using your monogram, share ’em on Instagram, and tag the photo with #wwmonogramlove so we can all get inspired!. Check out the WeddingWire Monogram Generator—we apologize in advance for the amount of time you’re going to spend playing with this fun tool! #sorrynotsorry
