    Pre-marriage, the woman is listed first. Post, the man is.

    @TwoStatesBride:  Yep, this. And exactly why on the invite the bride’s name is listed first and on things for already married couples the guys is first.

    I was going through couples I knew in my head, and I realised that I always name the one I know better first. So e.g. my sister and BIL are “Rachel and Andrew”, while my brother and SIL are “James and Debbie”. Same with friends.

    I guess what I’m saying is it doesn’t matter 🙂

    @paula1248:  I totally do that too! It actually came up the other day because Darling Husband and I were going through some cards for people and were trying to figure out which card was from whose parents since they both just wrote ‘Mom and Dad’, and I realized the super easy way is to see if the card is addressed to ‘DH and Wonderstruck’ or ‘Wonderstruck and DH’.

    @paula1248:  I think most people do that! I do! I think either is fine. For the wedding I would probably do Her & Him.

    @mrs_brownie:  So weird.  My wedding theme is M + K as well!   I’m the M, he’s the K.  I chocked it up to sounding better, plus the tradition of bride’s name first.
