Monograms 101

We all love a good monogram.  It can perfectly personalize almost anything.
Here's a primer on the perfect monogram.

Sally Megan Clark is marrying Thomas Richard Baker

Sally's Maiden Monogram:  SCM

Sally's Married Monogram:  SBM*
*assuming Sally is taking Baker as her new last name and keeping her middle name

Thomas's Monogram:  TRB

Sally and Thomas's Married Monogram:  SBT

Etiquette Rules:
Sally and Thomas should not use their married monogram until after the wedding.  That means pre-wedding stationery and thank you notes must have Sally's maiden monogram.
Rules are usually relaxed for the actual ceremony programs, but that depends on the couple.
