    I think you should just do first name.

    Unless your names ‘balance’ Ali May & Georginio (your names combined aren’t so much longer making his lack of middle name more obvious or something).

    Unless you frequently use your middle name, the names will flow better if you both just do your first names.

    DrKaz:  If you like your middle name, include it. Not one single person will say “OMG, she got to use 11 letters and he only got 7!”Nobody will notice or care either way, so if it means something for you to do it one way, then do it that way.

    It would seem very weird to me to see “son of…” for the groom only, especially if his parents’ names are already listed.

    DrKaz:  LOL — wow, 12 to 4, that IS a pretty big difference then…. Sounds like you’ve got it under control. Your marriage is off to a great start before the wedding has even happened!

    DrKaz:  (this is totally in jest, i hope you laugh) Give him a middle name- “Danger” or “Pheonix” perhaps “Thunder” tough stuff “Huntswithbow”

    Serious note, no one will notice that he’s missing a middle name and it might give people a conversation starter 🙂 If you’re really freaking then don’t include your middle name, it’s not required…

    My FI doesn’t have a middle name either. What I did was just use first and last for both of us. I know it’s not conventional to use the last name of the bride but I wanted it to be parallel.

    My friend and her now husband chose to leave his middle name off their invites. I don’t think it matters.
