I would do ‘Mr. Johnny Johnson and Mrs. Susie Smith.’  If you don’t care about Mr. and Mrs. though, the way you have it is fine I think.

I think traditionally the man’s name goes first unless the woman ‘outranks’ (haha) the man, but I just check Emily Post and they said that either is acceptable in modern times. so  put yourself first lady!! 🙂

I keeping my last name, but i still will use “Mr. and Mrs. Smith” because it just fits better on the address labels. And I seriously doubt anyone who knows im keeping my maiden name will even notice.

I’m planning on just doing first names! But our wedding is small and casual, I guess that may not work for something bigger.

I just used our first names and I think we put my name first, just because.

I’m probably going to put my name first, mainly because our first initials are “S” and “B” and with me going first, it doesn’t spell out “BS”.

Yeah, dumb reason, but it gets me every time!

I bought an embosser with just our address on it. Works for now, works for after the wedding (so long as we don’t move!).

I’m keeping my last name too. 

-On the wedding invites the return address will say:  MyLastName – HisLastName

-For the thank you cards, I’m thinking of being a little more casual:  HisFirstName & MyFirstName

-For the RSVP Card Address – I think I just want them going to me only 🙂
