I don’t have a middle name either… but I think it looks fine.  You can just put both yours and his names without middle names, unless he has an objection to this (ie familial significance or history).  That way if you both have 2 names, then it’s more balanced. 

Sorry can’t be more helpful…

i haven’t got a middle name either!  and my full name is all of 7 letters while my fiance’s has more than 20!  it looks funny since we’ve got it all spelled out on one line and i occupy less than 1/3 of it 🙁

Hmm well if you don’t have a middle name, why don’t you just use your last name?  My parents actually have a different (slightly) last name than my sisters and me.

I have a middle name but didn’t use it on my invitation.  Neither did Fiance

I don’t have a middle name and my Fiance does. We didn’t use his on our invites we just used our first and last names! Hope that helps!

I don’t have one either and my FI’s middle name is his dad’s name so we couldn’t leave it off the invite.  At first our plan was to have our last names too so it wouldn’t look so unbalanced.  But then when I saw it, I thought it was silly:

Mr. & Mrs. John Smith request blah blah their daugter

Jane Smith


Jonathan Andrew Goldman

Son of Mary and Andrew Goldman.

So we killed the last names and now it just looks really uneven.  The only other thing I could think of was to make up a new middle name, but too many people are aware of my life long woe of no middle name (sexism since my brother got one – I didn’t since one day I would get married and take my maiden as my middle!!)

I don’t have one, either, so we settled on:

Together with their parents

Jane Doe and John Michael Smith

request the pleasure of your company…


 It looked a little more balanced, but my parents weren’t really hosting (and both families were contributing some), so it was ok not to use their names.
