    Bride or Groom? I've read different things in different places but what is correct?

      Bride's name according to traditional etiquette - are you talking about for invitations though or just in general?

        I'd have to say Bride first. My FI is funny though, his name is Drew, not Andrew, just Drew, and was bugging me for putting my name first because then the invites could be read as Julie and Drew, as in Andrew? He's a little odd! I still put my name first!

                  I had no idea, so I set up my website with his name first, then my monogram came with mine first! I didn't want to deal with changing it, so I'm leaving it as is. I'm not traditional, but if I would have known, I would have probably put mine first. OH well!!

                    Thanks Ladies! I sent out STD with his name first because he put up a fuss and found a site that said Groom's goes first.

                    Now I'm working on the invites and want to make sure I do it right. I'm not very traditional but I feel like it should be correct on the invites.

                      I put FI's first on our invites because it just looked better on paper for the centering of the set up. My actual name is Susan however very few people ever call me Susan it's always Sue which I prefer. Our invite was Mark & Sue
