    It’s fine.  Everything is fine.  Deep breaths 🙂  Seriously, no one will think twice about it.

    Don’t stress, no one will even notice. Presumably everyone invited knows your last names already! Our invites only had our first names.

    I’ve never seen an invite with only first names, personally I would find it a bit strange.

    milkandcookies :  i think it’s weird your last name is nowhere on it. i actually think it would be less weird if you did JUST first names, no middle – because then it would give off a casual vibe. but first and middle with no last anywhere is strange. Minted can fit your last names – my name is very long (I have two middle names) and got my entire thing on there. It didn’t fit in preview mode, but the designers at Minted resized and tweaked the positioning to get it on there

    We didn’t use our last names or parents.  So we did “together with our families we invite you to the wedding df bride and groom.”  we are having a smaller wedding, and we sent photo save the days so hopefully people know it’s us 😂

    I think having the full names in the return address is a good idea just so there’s no confusion about who you are to anyone receiving the invitation who might be a little bit old and/or forgetful. You can put both your names on there and it will be fine.

    it’s strange having first and middle name instead of first and last, but it’s done now so just go with it.

    Who are all you bees inviting that won’t know the bride and groom’s names? Unless you both have very common names, I would think anyone who is close enough to warrant a wedding invitation would 1. Know who you guys are and 2. Know you’re engaged so would probably be expecting a marriage to be happening at some point.

    I get if your names are John and Sarah but if it’s Jake and Hilda, I would think you are the only couple they know with both those names. How many couples could they possibly know with that combination of names?

    did you actually receive invitations already? call minted ASAP! They can probably make the edit, for a small, change fee, but it’ll solve the issue.

    you’re not married yet, just get first name stamps, OR small clear address labels
