I don’t think you have that many choices!  Either drop your middle name or leave it as-is!  You should definitely keep the fonts for your names the same, i.e. I wouldn’t try to "trick" the eye by making his name larger or in a different font.  Just roll with it!  I’m sure it looks fine.

I know you said its hard to leave out your middle name, but I wouldn’t put it on the invitation. Balance is important… your invitation wording will look off!

Are both sets of parents names on the invitations? If not & your names are pretty common, like Sara & John, maybe you should just add both your last names so everyone knows who you are? My Fiance once received an invite to "David & Anna’s wedding" he didn’t know any Anna’s, but he knew 10 Davids. lol he didn’t end up going…

Would you consider just adding his last name to the invite, but not yours?

We put his last name on our invitations…his first name is 2 letters (initials – thats how he wanted it on the invite ).  We put my first and middle name (ends up being 12 letters) along with his first name and last name (6 letters) and it looked fine!

Maybe try centering all of the wording…it might not be so noticeable.

Don’t worry about it. It looks off to you, but most of your guests won’t be bothered by it.

I lot of times, anyway, the bride’s first and middle names are used, and the groom’s full name is used, so you could do that if you’re really upset about the balance. Or you could just leave out your middle name (even though you don’t want to). Or you could just accept that your name is going to be longer than his. 😉 Those are the only three options I can think of.

i think it looks fine! I wouldn’t worry about the symmetry!
