Nope.  Bride goes first.  The same goes for monograms used (like the topper on the wedding cake).

actually i am planning to, we are going a little less traditional and informal so we don’t feel the need to follow etiquette rules.

its ur wedding and you can do whatever you want.

my name is first on the invites, but his initial is first in the monogram – because i like "T and S" better than "S and T." 🙂

We had dual language invites. So, in the English text, my name went first because that’s American tradition, but in the Chinese text, his name went first, per Chinese tradition. A lot of Asian invitations will always list the grooms name first, even in the English section.

Similarly to staceyb, my name went first any time we spelled them out. But in our monogram his went first… j+b was a LOT better than b+j. hehe! I tried to convience him to get "Team BJ" t-shirts for the rehearsal dinner. I figured we’d play dumb and then act all shocked when someone pointed out the nauty reference. He was afraid his mom would have a heart attack though. Hehe!

I say, go with whatever works for you! Good luck!
