I do not think I have ever been more indecisive about anything before these invitations came along. So next decision, last name or no last name? I have the same last name as my parents and I know etiquette says in that case to only put my first and middle names when their name is listed on the invite (Mr. & Mrs. John Smith request the…). Also, I have two middle names and a fairly long last name.
My question is, did you guys put the bride’s full name, first and last, on the invitation??

We did Bride’s First + Middle and Groom’s First + Middle + Last.

We did only our First + Middle names. But the invivation stated I was the daughter of Mr. & Mrs. Maiden Last Name and was marrying son of Mr. & Mrs. DH’s Last Name.

Depends on how you’re wording the invitation. My parents didn’t pay for our wedding, so we didn’t feel the need to list their names on the invitation. We did the whole “Together with their families” thing, so it listed my first, middle, last and his first, middle, last.
If you’re doing the traditional wording where your parents’ names are listed as the hosts, then no, you don’t need your last name.

Full names for both of us.

Thanks for the tips everyone. We are leaning towards leaving my last name on there (to appease dad), but I’m still torn. Survey is a 50/50 split. Can anyone else tell me what they did for their invites?

I did not put my last name because my parents names (divorced but still same last name) are already on there twice. I figured they’d get the point 🙂

We’re doing full names… I don’t have a middle name, so my first and his first/middle would look funny.
