I decided to put the Ladies name first on my wedding invitation envelopes followed by the man.
I know tradition dictates Males names first, but I could care less, and unless I am
personally related to them, I am putting the ladies name first.And none of that Ms. Mrs. Mr. crap either, takes up space and I never call my friends by Ms. Melissa.
Has anyone done this or will?
I am sure I may ruffle a few feathers, but what’s the big deal?

I caved I did Ms. & Mr. only because of my reply card set up. I did each label according to my relationship and for my maid of honor I used her and her husbands nickname. For some thers as well. Moral of the story: go with what you want, not what is expected.

In this day and age, I don’t think it really matters. I think you should address your invitations how you want them. If I received an invite and my name was first, honestly, I probably wouldn’t even notice. And if I did, I wouldn’t even care. I tend to be a bit more tradtional, i.e. I don’t mind when people refer to me as Mrs. DHFirstName DHLastName…it just doesn’t bother me. So, coming from someone who does like the Mr. & Mrs., I think address your invites your way is just fine.
