I’ve been trying to decide that myself, and I think I will mostly because my first name is so short and so is my last name, but my middle name is pretty long.

Example:

Lala Elizabeth Falala

I’m doing middle names but only because I think it looks more formal. We are having a formal catholic church wedding so I think middle names suit our wedding. I suppose it depends on the “feel” you are going for.

We did full names, partly for formality, partly bc at least 50% of the guests know me by a nickname but the 50% that don’t call me that name are important (my family), and partly bc Darling Husband has a pretty awesome full name (sounds like it should end with “the third” it’s so fancy and dignified) and he wanted to use it! It does look more formal though so if you are aiming for informal I would probably not use middle names.

We used our middle names & our wedding is somewhat informal.  We tempered the “formality” with the use of color for our names & the rest in black.

For your names, I like the use of the middle name…seems more “official”.  Both look nice tho’.

We did middle names, it does add to the formality but mostly we did it cos they did it on the sample invite and the names are printed in red as an accent so we thought we’d use middle names.

We will be putting our middle names on our invitations because our wedding has a more formal feel to it. Even if it didn’t though, we probably would because I think it just looks nicer.

We also used middle names because our invitations and wedding are more formal.

We are going to use middle names, even though my names are 9, 7, 6 letters long respectively. And Mr. Roux are 3, 7, 8. So when I get married my super long name will be even longer! but I like the formality of the middle names.

We’re using our middle names because I love the way they look, they both start with the same letter.
