This giveaway is closed. Thanks for participatin’ y’all!

Well, my belles, we’ve come to the final giveaway in the 12 Days of Southern Weddings Christmas. It’s been a pretty good run, hasn’t it? There’s been cowboy boots, calligraphy, and cake toppers, not to mention pretties for your hair, ears, and throat (bouquet!).

But between you and me, I think we may have saved the best for last. The paper geniuses at Bella Figura are our partners in generosity this time, and they are pulling out all the stops for one lucky winner!!

The final winner in our giveaway series will win — wait for it — 100 2-color letterpress invitations on 1-ply paper, 100 1-color letterpress reply cards on 1-ply paper, 100 blank invitation envelopes, and 100 blank reply card envelopes. YAHOO!!! Ready to see some of the goodness that could be in store for you?

And that is truly just the tip of the iceberg. Bella Figura offers over 50 ink colors, dozens of fonts, fabulous edge painting, patterned envelope liners, and much more. Almost everything can be customized, and everything they touch is both artisan and eco-friendly. They print on tree-free cotton paper, and follow all best practices for the stationery industry. Southern Weddings truly loves this company (we featured them in V4 here!), and it makes us SO HAPPY to know that one of you are going to take home this amazing prize!!

Though edge painting and envelope liners aren’t included in the package, we couldn’t help but share some of the gorgeousness we spotted on Bella Figura’s blog for their 2012 designs. Hey, if you win, you can always pay the difference to have these special touches added to your order! :)

    Really loving the simple frame and allouette invites – but they’re all great!

  80. avatar MissTurk reply

    I must admit that I’ve been reading wedding blogs a little longer (probably 3 or 4 years) thank I’ve been engaged (1mo!) BUT what I have always known is that Bella Figura has absolutely the most FABULOUS invitations, and I love that they are in my home state of New York! I could never afford these amazing invites on my own (I was just thinking about bidding on a gocco on ebay) – so winning this would be amazing and really set the tone for my wedding. My favorite is Balsam Calligraphy, really no one does modern calligraphy invitations like Bella Figura!!

  81. avatar Kristi reply

    I love the Loretta Formal. It was tough for me to choose between that one and the Charmed DC, since DC is where we met and fell in love. Too bad our wedding isn’t in DC, that one would have been perfect!

  108. avatar Joanna reply

    I just sent off for samples of Bordure and Helena. I love the border of one and the font of another. I love love their options and just how eco friendly they are for something that can get out of hand with the carbon footprint fast!

    I’ve actually just ordered a bunch of samples because I am going to order my invitations with this company, so it’d be amazing if I won!

    One of my many favorites is the La Salle – so pretty!

    My favorite is the Cameo design! (dusty pink + black)

    I really like the Harbor Beach. They are perfect! The small anchor detail will be carried throughout our wedding because our new last name will be Sayler.

Like our last Southern Spotting, this week’s is also of the flora variety, and boy, is it stunning! A life-size, boxwood monogram — why, I never would have imagined it in all my days! (But I’m sure glad someone else did!) Read on for a few more details from the lovely bride, Hillary!

From Hillary:

“Our wedding reception was all about our new monogram. Our wedding planner, Jenna Lee, owner of Splurge Event Design, came up with the idea of the boxwood topiary initials in the courtyard to make a statement and to continue the theme of our new monogram into the cocktail area of our reception. We also stitched our monogram on handmade pillows and placed them around on the lounge furniture. Inside the reception, we had hemstitched monogrammed napkins at each place setting along with a “to go” coffee and donut station for the end of the night….of course, with monogrammed paper goods! Now we can use some of those items in our new home to remind us of our special day.”

Huge thank you to Scott Hopkins Photography for sending this gem our way! You can see more of Hillary + John’s lovely wedding, including a few of those fab monogrammed details, on the Hopkins’ blog right here.

Southern Fab Finds: Monograms

by in Contests, Main on

One thing we never tire of in the Southern Weddings office is monograms. Just ask Marissa and Whitney, they’ll monogram anything! I must admit, some things like mighty fine with your three initials carved, embroidered or stamped onto it. That must be why we were immediately taken with Southern Proper Monograms.

Southern Proper Monograms offers custom birch wood monograms (single or three-letters) in a wide array of sizes. We can see so many uses for them! Paint them and hang them on the church doors, the backs of your chairs, on the side of pews, the list goes on. What better way to show off your new initials than with a snazzy monogram?

To Enter: Go on over to the Southern Proper Monograms site and take a look around. Then come back here and tell us how you would use a custom monogram in your wedding.

To Win: Two 14-inch custom monograms for your wedding!

    I think the better question is, how would I not use these monograms at my wedding?! Besides for having them hang on the back of our chairs at the reception, they would look amazing in the wreaths on the doors as you enter the church and the reception venue for cocktail hour. It would also look cute tied to the back of our getaway car for a new twist on the “just married” sign. These monograms would be great to tie in our monogrammed overlay on the cake table!

  2. avatar Elisa B reply

    I would love to use these on the doors of the church or the end of the aisles at the ceremony. At the reception they could be used on the ride and groom chairs and during portraits too!

  3. avatar Stefanie R. reply

    I think the monogram would be perfect for the front doors of the chapel! Maybe nestled in some magnolia wreaths.

  4. avatar Sarah reply

    I would definitely hang them on the doors that open onto the courtyard :)

  5. avatar Sandryte reply

    I would hang it on the gates

  6. avatar Tiffany Lee reply

    I am monogram crazy! I would hang one monogram above us during the reception and another on the barn doors on the way into the reception.

  7. avatar Laura DeBellis reply

    These are wonderful! We are having our ceremony and reception at an oceanfront beach house so one of them would be perfect on the front door to welcome everyone! The other would have to be highlighted at the reception somehow! They’re awesome!

  8. avatar Emily L reply

    I would hang them on the front doors of the Southern mansion that our reception is at, inside the Mississippi cotton boil wreaths! I’m obsessed with monograms!! And it would be a great way to greet our guests to our first party as a married couple!! :D

  9. avatar elizabeth reply

    i love the idea of using these monograms at our wedding! i would use them inside of wreaths for our church doors and then also use them at the entrance to our reception site!

  10. avatar Madi reply

    I think it would be absolutely sweet to have a monogram-themed post-wedding photo shoot! Having the bride and groom hold their own separate monograms, then bringing them together with their new “together” monogram….absolutely adorable. :)

  11. avatar Jessica Garrett reply

    I love it all! I especially like the colorful flower wreath with monogram and the wine koozie with monogram!! Super cute!!! Would love to have one!

  12. avatar madelynne miller reply

    I think it’d be really neat to put them on the table at the church entry with the guest book and flowers. I would also love it on the family wedding portrait table to show how my name is changing :)

  13. avatar Haley reply

    I agree with Kelsey–how could you not use these!! I would probably use them at the door to welcome guests or near the dance floor!

  14. avatar Linden reply

    oh how I love monograms! I think I’ve loved monogramming EVERYTHING since preschool when I had my pink backpack monogrammed with my name…. (or maybe even earlier with the bloomers with my name- haha). Anyway, I’d use them in flower wreaths on the church doors!!!

  15. avatar Echo Dannelle reply

    I’d love to hang one behind us at the reception. Or maybe put it on the guestbook table. I can’t decide!

  16. avatar Jenna Kate reply

    I would love to have one of these monograms!! We’re getting married in a private garden off a busy street in downtown Charleston, SC, so this would be a great way to make sure our guests know where to come in for our wedding!!

  17. avatar Sarah H. reply

    Quite frankly, I will monogram anything that stays still long enough. And although the doors on the chapel I am getting married in will stay still, I think I would be in BIG trouble if I monogrammed them, so these custom monograms would be the perfect fix on the chapel doors!

  18. avatar Jennifer reply

    I would nestle each monogram inside a wreath of white roses and hang them on the wrought iron gates of my venue using an off-white or champagne satin ribbon. Then later, I’d use them in my formal Christmas tree! The other one would have a reserved spot on my front door year round!

  19. avatar Kerry reply

    Although I had the wedding of my dreams this summer, I would just LOVE to place our new initials on the front door of our home-sweet-home! I have cotton and burlap that were saved from our wedding that I would love to use in a vine wreath. The wood monogram would make it absolutely perfect! They are simply adorable!

  20. avatar Desiree reply

    I love this Southern Fab Find! I’ve been wanting a sign to hang on my office door – kind of like a storefront sign!

  21. avatar Sarah reply

    The 3-letter ten inch monograms would be beautiful if hung from the two giant wooden handles on the doors to my church. It would definitely be a
    Southern way of letting guests know they’re at the right
    place for our wedding! And they’d just be so darn adorable!

  22. avatar Ali Peek reply

    The better question is “where would I NOT use them?’ I am absolutely obsessed with monograms and cannot wait to put my new initials anywhere and EVERYWHERE at my wedding in April.

  23. avatar Kristyn M reply

    I have been oogling over these FOREVER! I love the three letter monograms in 10 or 14 in! I really want one for our front door!!

  24. avatar Allyson L. reply

    I have been looking into monograms for our wedding but haven’t found exactly what I wanted yet. I love these birch wood monograms though, they would go perfectly with our rustic farm setting. My Mom and I are marking fall inspired wreaths for the doors of the barn as guests enter the ceremony space and I would love to include these in the wreaths. We are also planning on using monograms throughout the reception on our chairs and on the dessert table.

  25. avatar Melissa reply

    My wedding is just 3 weeks away! We are still putting the finishing touches and details together. I can see the 3 letter monogram (10 in) on the fireplace mantle behind our head table beside a white and green hydrangea arrangement and also the single monograms scattered throughout the reception site.

  26. avatar Amber reply

    I would string these on burlap and hang one each on the huge wooden doors at the entrance of Raffaldini for our wedding. I don’t usually like personal items monogrammed, but love these!

  27. avatar Ilana reply

    I have always love the look of the bride and grooms chair decorations. These would be fantastic to use on our chairs at the reception – one three letter monogram each with our initials – hanging with bright ribbons! OR (since the wreaths are just adorable) a three letter monogram with our two initials on either side of the last name initial hanging on the front door of the reception. Too adorable!!

  28. avatar Emily H reply

    How purdy! We are getting married under a tree in the middle of a Tennessee vineyard. I would love to hang these monograms on the vine post on either side of the tree.

  29. avatar Charity reply

    Let me start by saying I’m getting one of these wether or not i win! I like to call my wedding theme, Farmhouse Shaby Chic. I’m using lots of pieces of old furniture and lots of items whitewashed. The monogram will be perfectly with every single detail in my wedding!!!! I could use two single letters for mine and my fiances first names and a three letter monogram for either, the sign in table, in a wreath, somewhere in my southern style buffet line or a number of other places!! I’m so glad ya’ll posted these!!

  30. avatar Kate E reply

    I would love to use two of the 3-letter 16 inch monograms on the back of the bride and groom’s chairs. They are so simple and elegant, I think they would be the perfect addition!

  31. avatar Brittany B reply

    I would use the 3 letter monograms as an accent to my “Love is Sweet” table. We are having a variety of desserts with pictures of us growing up eating cotton candy, ice cream, candy, popsicles, etc. I would love a large one to set right in the middle. I would probably use the other in a magnolia wreath at the door of our reception (an old plantation type house) here in Virginia :)

  32. avatar Emily reply

    I’m getting married in a “secret garden” in downtown Richmond VA. We are using the garden door as theme and it would be perfect to hang the monogram from the wreath on the door!

  33. avatar Katherine reply

    I LOVE these!! I would use one to hang behind our bride and groom’s chairs!

  34. avatar Ashley Stout reply

    I love these. I am getting married in a old barn and they would look great of the barn doors as guest walked in.

  35. avatar Ally G. reply

    These would be so great for my wedding! I seriouls love these! Our reception is in a big red barn and they would look great on the barn doors as our guests walked in! I always love a beautiful monogram!

  36. avatar Kelly Williams reply

    The Acrylic Cocktail Tray with monogram is perfect for tailgating, entertaining and/or showers!! LOVE it!
