My Fiance and I are using our initials as part of our “theme.” We are putting “M+K” on our invites, favors, cake topper, ect. We don’t mind either way (M+K or K+M) because they both sound and look nice, but how should it go? Typically the brides name is listed first on the invitations, but when you say a couple’s name aloud, it’s typically the husband’s name first followed by the wife. For example: John and Jane Doe. I know this is petty and it doesn’t really matter, but I’m just curious what you bee’s think!

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.
