We didn’t use ours. No one said anything about it 🙂

We didn’t use either either.  I figure it’s a personal choice and, really, who NEEDS to know the middle name???

Nope. And I’m not sure I’ve gotten an invite with anyone’s middle name on it before…

@bakerella: the ones I’ve seen that use middle name don’t use last.

We didn’t.  I love my middle name, but Fiance absolutely hates his and did not want it on the invitation.  I would’ve felt weird using mine and not his.

We didn’t.  We chose to just list our first and last names.

I used my first and middle and my fi wanted his first and last (he hates his middle but people probably just assumed he doesn’t have one)

We didn’t – we didn’t want our invites to feel super formal.

We aren’t putting ours on there. Our wedding/invites are more casual, so I don’t feek like we need to.

I don’t have one so we won’t be putting middle names on the invites.

I’m not. I like my middle name but I just don’t have room for it either lol!

We used ours- but then my grandma calls me by my first (nickname of first) and middle so it’s not that strange for my family.
