I don’t know how exactly you do it, but if she is a lieutenant and his rank is on there, hers needs to be too.

The ranks of both should be present. Whether she is a 1st or 2nd Lt. her proper title is Lt!

—From what I know, names go side by side if they are married… but guests of the person you are inviting go on the second line. Also, just thought you should know that their branch goes under their names whenever their rank is used as a title.

@MissTaken:  Oh and you dont need to put 1st, her rank is lieutenant. And you prob shouldnt abbreviate either if you are having a formal wedding.
