      It's always been my understanding that the women's name goes first until you are married.  My name was first on our Save the Dates, wedding website, return address stamp, etc.  Now that we're married, I always put his name first :)

        Typically it's the brides name first.

          Think traditon used to be the male's name first, but obviously that's changed.  Hey do what makes you happy.

              I was just wondering this myself! From previous invites I have received, it looks like the bride's name is usually first. But I prefer saying his name and then my name so I will go with that. I definitely feel whatever you like best and forget "tradition"

                In the beginning we had decided to put my name first but then when I was working on the wording of the invitation I decided to write husband and wife somewhere on the invitation so it made me put his name first and then mine. It really wasn't a big deal to us.
