Whose name should appear first?

Recommended Posts

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?

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.

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.
