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

In honor of engaged couples sharing their #justsaidyes moments with us on Instagram, we just had to share this adorable proposal. This man filmed his own version of the “Rude” music video and played it for his girlfriend at the local movie theater, which happened to be filled with their family and friends. After leaving the theater for a few minutes, he reappeared to ask her the question of a lifetime. Between the amount of planning and her reaction, good luck not tearing up!

Actress Amy Poehler is already a pro at winning us over with her witty humor, but here at WeddingWire, we think she could have another career in her future: wedding pianist! On November 3, at a church in Pasadena, Calif., Poehler was on hand for a reading of “Portlandia” actress Carrie Brownstein’s book, “Hunger Makes Me a Modern Girl: A Memoir.” During the Q&A portion of the event, a fan named Kendall stepped up to the mic and requested that Brownstein marry her and her partner, Genevieve, right then and there! It turns out that Brownstein is a licensed wedding officiant, and after some encouragement from Poehler, she agreed to perform the impromptu wedding. The ever-so-thoughtful Poehler quickly made bouquets for Kendall and Genevieve before taking a seat behind the church’s piano. You can hear her playing some (amateur) notes as the couple exchange their handwritten vows. We have to say that Brownstein did a fantastic job as the officiant, even providing Kendall and Genevieve with some heartfelt marriage advice that had us a bit teary-eyed. See for yourself in the video above!

Even though traditions such as walking down the aisle to “Canon in D” haven’t changed over the last century–wedding dresses have! Which iconic look inspires YOU in Mode’s 3-minute video? (Secretly, we still adore the ’50s fashion. How could we forget when Audrey Hepburn married Mel Ferrer in a tea-length Givenchy gown!)
