*Free* Custom Monogram

I am so excited to offer my fall/winter special.

Get a *FREE* custom designed monogram with any Save the Date or Invitation order.

A monogram is the logo of a wedding. It represents you and your future hubby's style and what kind of wedding you will have. It also sets the design standard for the rest of the stationery pieces of the wedding.

You can use your monogram on just about everything to create a cohesive, tied together look for your wedding. Use it on your Save the Dates, menus, GOBO, favor tags, programs and etc.

After the wedding, you can always drop your wedding date from the monogram and use it as your new married monogram on other stationery pieces.

Here are my invites that I, white, a touch of damask, and a splash of lime green.

Susan and Scott

I designed these monograms based on Susan and Scott's colors of navy with pops of fuschia and orange. I love love this color combo! Traditional with a modern twist.


So I have taken the leap and began my blog. I am currently working with a few brides to jump start my designs. I will surely post them soon. Instead of focusing on my last semester of school, I spent the day designing monograms for brides and building this blog. I truly love designing anything related to joyous occasions. It hit me a few days ago, that I could combine my creative talents (which I have lots of student loans to prove) and my love for helping and working with people into a job that I love. And that's how Designs by Alaina was born.

So here goes nothing!
