I want to order an address stamp from Etsy to use for our invitation and RSVP envelopes. I’m only going to include our first names so that I can use the stamp before and after the wedding. I was just wondering what order the names should be in. Should my name or his name be first?

Do whatever you think sounds best 🙂

Everything I’ve seen has the girl’s name first and guy’s name second.

Typically for wedding related things the bride’s name goes first.

I don’t think there’s a rule either – we also got one from etsy (from Emilie Friday) – and it has my name first and then his name (just our first names as well).
We got lots of compliments on it so be ready!

We got ours with my name first because it sounds better that way. I would just do whatever feels most natural to you. People won’t judge either way :).

Thanks for the responses. That helps. I think I may go with my name first.

It always sounds better when the names are in alphabetical order.
Instead of Melissa & John
We put John & Melissa

we also used Emilie Friday (awesome, btw!!), and i had my name first. i don’t think it matters, though! just go with whatever you think works best.

We did this too! I got his name then my name…just because it sounded better.

I think these are so cute! When we live somewhere where I know we’ll be for an extended period of time, I want to buy one (didn’t learn about them until after wedding stuff was mailed).
I’d list ours with my name first just because I think it sounds better that way. Go with whichever way has the best ring to it.

I just received my stamp today from an etsy seller. I love it. But to answer your question…no fast rule. I listed mine first; but I also come first alphabetically. 🙂
