    I have seen both the grooms name first then the bride and reverse on wedding favors monograms and etc.

    Which is the appropriate way and why?

            I've been alternating. On our save the date cards, I put my name first, but on the magnets, his is first. His is also first on our website. Mine will be first on our invitations.

              That's a great way hunniebee724. I also thought that maybe my name is first before marriage such as save the date, reminder cards and etc. Then his name first after marriage such as wedding favors and etc.

                I have been putting mine first but only because most that I have seen are in that format..anything goes if you ask me!

                  I put mine first.. no specific reason why. Maybe because I made them? :)

                    From what I have been told before the wedding the brides name goes first (mainly b/c in the olden days because the brides family paid for the wedding) and then once they are married the grooms name comes first. At least that is how we are doing it...I figure on everything in life after we are married his name will come first so during all of the wedding stuff mine can come first!
