No one will notice. You did a great job on them, send them out and don’t fret the smalls.

Uh what? I have never researched which is the “correct” way but I tend to do things my way. pretty sure that’s a really dated custom Anyway and no one will know. Ive seen formal invitations with the groom’s name first, so it should be fine?

No one will care. You are way over thinking it. It’s a nice STD.

Bride’s name is usually first, but I’ve seen it the other way around too. No big deal. It’s a cute card!

Ummm… totally fine. I had NO idea that wasnt proper etiquette. I am sure no one else will either. Things are so different now a days. Were not even doing STD….

KapOct18:  Oops, on the website. Can you add it on a business card insert? (they’re easily printed out on your computer).

My daughter had her FI name first on the StD and the invitation bellyband, but her’s first on the invitation itself.

Don’t worry about it. First, because the STDs are adorable looking (so no one will likely notice). Second, because those who take the time to look at the names closely probably won’t even know about the norm/etiquette (like me). Congrats!

Nope. Who cares! It looks great. I hate antiquated etiquette rules.
