I would use full names for your vows, it’s totally up to you for the programs though. It depends on the formality of your ceremony. (:

We’re using his nickname, or the name he’s gone by since birth.  Everyone knows him as his middle name, not his first name, so it makes more sense.  Plus, we’re having a less traditional wedding so our invites simply included our first names.  Our last names were already on there from our parents, and we knew everyone who was invited would know who it was from.

how attached are you to your full name? I would use what you feel comfotable with in your vows. my friend married a Ted and she said calling him theodore would have made it feel like she was marrying someone else!!

My name is Kristen, however my closet family members all call me Krissy. But i’m going for more of a formal feel for the ceremony so i’ll be sticking with Kristen.

I’ve been going by my middle name since birth but a couple of people know me by my first name.  I only put my first name on the save the dates but I’m going to put my full name on my invites because my middle name is so much a part of me but I want my legal first name on there too.  I’m not sure what we’ll do for the vows yet…

It depends on how formal your wedding is going to be! If you are having a formal ceremony, then I would use your full names on the invitations and in the ceremony. But if it is less formal, then either version of your name is okay.

p.s. the post is now in the names board.

@Jaylii9 How funny!  My FI’s name is Franklin, but the only people I know who call him Frank are his parents.  I’d feel so weird saying Frank in our vows.  haha!

we used full names since it’s a pretty formal wedding … but nicknames on the STDs!

I’m the only one with a “proper” name and what I go by, and we’re using what I go by for everything (so far).  Of course, we’re having a more casual-tone farm wedding, so we can get away with things being more laid back.

I go by my full name and hubs has a nickname. I let him choose which he wanted, but since my name and his nickname rhyme, he went with his full name

I really think it depends on what everyone knows you as. I’ve been called my real name maybe 5 times by my mom, when she was really mad at me, and only ever on the first few days of classes besides that. My nickname is still just a normal name (like Kate for Katherine) so I think it would feel weird to use my real name.

I’m using “nicknames” for Save-The-Date Cards and the website, but probably “real” first names for everything else (invites, programs, during the ceremony).
