I was wondering if anyone ended up omitting middle names from their wedding invites. I have a short name and no middle name. My fiance has a pretty long first name, and a middle name. I am thinking of not putting his middle name on the invite, but wonder if that’s strange or breaking some sort of etiquette rule.
Anyone have a similar situation? What did you do?

We didn’t use ours. No one said anything about it 🙂

We didn’t use either either. I figure it’s a personal choice and, really, who NEEDS to know the middle name???

Nope. And I’m not sure I’ve gotten an invite with anyone’s middle name on it before…

@bakerella: the ones I’ve seen that use middle name don’t use last.

We didn’t. I love my middle name, but FI absolutely hates his and did not want it on the invitation. I would’ve felt weird using mine and not his.

We didn’t. We chose to just list our first and last names.

I used my first and middle and my fi wanted his first and last (he hates his middle but people probably just assumed he doesn’t have one)

We didn’t – we didn’t want our invites to feel super formal.

We aren’t putting ours on there. Our wedding/invites are more casual, so I don’t feek like we need to.

I don’t have one so we won’t be putting middle names on the invites.

I’m not. I like my middle name but I just don’t have room for it either lol!

We used ours- but then my grandma calls me by my first (nickname of first) and middle so it’s not that strange for my family.
