Hi bees, my fiance and I are hosting our wedding, and we like a more modern and less traditional invite. We are looking at just having our first names, and saying something like ‘ together with their families’. Is anyone else doing it this way? What about the fact that our last names don’t appear anywhere on the invitation? We don’t like the way the last names look and it doesn’t really go with the invitation style, but I don’t want people to not know who it’s from either (although I think 90-95% of guest would definately know).

@km4ne6: Well, if every one of your guests would know in advance that “Jack and Jane” are getting married, and they receive an invitation on which only the names “Jack and Jane” appear, you’d probably be fine, as untraditional as that would be.
However, if there will be people invited to your wedding who do not know both of you (parents’ friends, for example) or who know one of you but haven’t seen you in years and didn’t even know you were engaged (Great Aunt Mildred or cousin Pete), then it may be a bit confusing for an invitation to show up in the mail, especially if one or both of you have common names.

I dont have last names on my invitations either. It just does not work with our invitations and we didnt put our parents names on it just because FI’s parents are divorced and would just not have worked. I’m all confused on what to do, but the accommodations cards says our last names on it. so i’m thinking that will work.
