I think you’re overanalyzing – that’s totes normal judging by the invitations I’ve seen… and my own invitation!

More than okay to use your full name – it’s a preference thing.  Don’t worry about it!

I’ve never heard of a bride not putting her maiden name on the invite. What’s the reasoning for it?

No one will care, and few will even notice.

@MrsMcGyro: Technically, if the bride includes her parents’ names, it is a ‘given’ what her Maiden name is. If the couple is hosting, or if the parents are only mentioned as “together with their parents”, it is more common to see the bride’s last name. I don’t think it matters either way though, and I highly doubt others will.

Yea, I’ve never heard of that. Seems like it would be unbalanced without your full name, and it would make me feel disconnected from my own family.

Looks and sounds great to me. It’s what I plan on doing too. It’s the last time you get to claim your maiden name so why not.

technically i think its supposed to be Kaitlyn Emily & Michael Andrew Jones.

but i say do what you want, i think it would be fine to keep your last name there.

i also think its fine to have your parents before his but to keep it on one line.

I put mine on, but only becaue it said together with their parents, so my parents last name wasn’t mentioned, I had read this in an etiquette book.  I don’t think it really matters either way though.

What? The question is why wouldn’t you have your last name there?
