    I am putting all our stuff together; invites, monogram, wedding site and cannot decide who's name should go first? Should the brides or the grooms? My thoughts are ladies first? Does anyone know?

            I did the Groom's, and I know I'm backwards but this is my reasoning:

            The whole day is about me, absolutely all me, lol, so I figured for one time in his life(lol, jk) he might as well come first even if it is only on paper!!

            ...and I thought it looked better with his name first! ;o)

                haha...this is my EXACT reasoning. I did his name first on everything because I feel like everything else is all about me so why not throw him a bone and make him feel a little special lol. I also LOVE the way his name looks first on our monogram logo so it also had to do a lot with aesthetic:)

                The only place where I stuck with tradition was on the invitation... my name came first there.

                  That is so funny because that was my reasoning too! So the website was set up like that, then I didn't think to tell our monogram designer, and she put my name first... so our stuff is all over the place. I don't mind!

                    It is proper to have the brides name first!

                      LOL I just had this conversation with my MOH. I always put his name first because I think it looks and sounds better, however, after learning that its proper etiquette to put my name first I'm going to rearrange my invites.
