Help – I think I made a mistake on our wedding invitations! My fiance and I are hosting so no parents names are on the invite but I only used our first and middle names, not last names. Is there any way to justify this? I’m really hoping it can be acceptable and I didn’t just waste $300! Help 🙁

So the invitations just say “Jane Elizabeth” and “Robert John”? I guess I don’t see it as that big a deal as long as people know who you are. Maybe make sure both your last names are on the return address? In terms of etiquette, I don’t think it matters, I think it just matters as long as people know whose wedding they were invited to! I wouldn’t stress about it… you have so many other things to stress about, I’m sure!

If you have already ordered them, don’t worry about it. I don’t think it will be such a guffaw that people will be judging you or talking about it.

I don’t think there’s anything wrong “etiquette wise” with putting first & middle names. Sure, it’s not traditional, but as long as your guests know whose wedding they are being invited to- I think you’re in the clear. Don’t worry about it!

I don’t think it matters etiquette wise, but people may not know whose wedding they are being invited to.

I wouldnt worry about it, you can include your last names on the return address label on the envelope

Thank you all for your input! I was feeling a little better about it and was chatting with the stationer simultaneously. Just got the best news – they are reprinting at no charge! How awesome is that?? There are still some good companies out there 🙂
