    i am finishing up our save the date's and have a couple of etiquette questions:

    Who's name goes first if the couple is married?
    Who's name goes first if the couple is unmarried?

    i think it is man first if married, female first if unmarried but i can't remember!

    oh, and then what about married couples who have different last names?

      I didn't really follow tradition with my STD's.. I put who I was better friends with first! Haha.

          I think - if the couple is married, you never separate the man from his first and last name. For example:

          Jane and John Doe.

          But if the couple isn't married you put the girl first but with her last name.

          Jane Smith and John Doe.

          Hope this helps.

              that link is SUPER helpful! I printed out a page like that when addressing mine so I could refer to it if I blanked on anything! :-)

              As far as unmarried couples go...I believe it's acutally supposed to be in alphabetical order by their last names? Like Ms Jones and Mr Smith etc.

              Hope that helps!!
