    The woman’s name always goes first as a rule of thumb.

    @jg780806:  pre-wedding, woman’s name goes first. post-wedding, groom’s name goes first.

    The bride’s name is always first before marriage, after that groom comes first.

    Which way sounds better? I usually go on a case-by-case basis.

    twostatesbride is correct. Bride first, then groom first

    Apparently no one told vistaprint this rule.  I just ordered our save the dates and they have his name first because that’s what the template had.  Oh well.

    It’s not a big deal, but some people may notice if you put the grooms name first. The last wedding I was at had the grooms name first on everything and my mom asked me if that was normal because it sounded strange to her. I never thought much of it, but since hse noticed and said something, I’ve made sure to have my name first on everything!

    Oops. Doing our save the dates the wrong way round it seems.

    I’ve only seen it with the woman’s name first so I voted bride.


    HOWEVER, after seeing the responses, if I was doing personalised items, I’d be very tempted to put the groom’s name first, just to be different. I’m pretty big on including guys, I feel like they get left out a lot, in a lot of aspects, not just weddings. :/
