Question/Topic: Monogramming 
Answer/Pointer: Monogramming I was recently married and am now wondering about monogramming towels, napkin, etc. Do I use my husband's and my first initials with our last-nme initial, or do I use only my initials? For many years prospective brides collected trousseaux--table linens, towels, and bed linens--all monogrammed with their own initials in case the marriage did not take place. Today, few brides have trousseaux to bring to their marriage, and the linens they purchase are monogrammed with their married initials. If the bride is taking her husband's last name, their first-name initials are on either side of the larger last-name initial. Source: Emily Post's column, Good Housekeeping 6/93
