    Does it even matter whose name appears first on your wedding website, monogram, labels, etc.  My family is giving me a hard time and believes his name should be first.  What are you doing?

      I would say it's up to the individual. I put my partners name first on our STDs

        Haha!  That's what I said!  It's my grandmother who is spitting fire at me about this.  I think I will stick to my original plan and leave my name first.

            Did your FI have an opinion on this???? Just wondering, because I plan to have this discussion with mine.

              Typically the brides' name goes first and then the grooms.

              And if it's a same sex couple, it's listed alphabetically so depending on the last names, that is who goes first.

              He mentioned it and I said I liked the way it sounded better with my name first....then proceeded to say with a smile  "if you like, you can do all the prep work and I'll be happy to put your name first" to which he responded...."your name first works for me", lol...he's easy going

                On traditional wedding stationary, I believe the bride's name goes first.

                To invitees, you put the man's name first. For example:

                 

                To Mr. John Smith and Jane Doe

                 

                OR

                 

                To Mr. and Mrs. John Smith.

                 

                That is very traditional, though. I put his name first on some things, and mine first on others. It just depended on what it was and the way it all looked.

                  We did and he said it didn't matter. We are aware that traditionally speaking his name appears first on other things. I thought (as mentioned above) the bride's name is first on wedding related stationary.
