    I don’t know if it matters. I flip flop with our wedding stuff. Our return address stamp says HisFirst and MyFirst, as does our wedding website. But our STD and invite my name is first.

    I have been told that traditionally, the bride’s name goes first.

    Traditionally the brides name goes first on everything!

    Then once married the husbands name always goes first!

    Since I bought it before the wedding, I did hers than his (I got a stamp just like yours). I’m using it on the thank-yous now, and I don’t think anyone will notice. People notice etiquette much more leading up to the wedding, I think.

    Traditionally the brides name goes before the grooms in this case
