So I’m trying out ideas for my save the dates with my stamps and cards I bought and I’m hand writing the names, but who’s name goes on first? Would it be Charlotte & H2B or H2B & Charlotte?
I believe it’s the Bride first. Think this comes from originally the brides parent sent the invites, etc, but to be honest I don’t think it matters much, just whatever you want. x
If they were sent to my friends and family I wrote my name first then my hubby's name first to his family and friends x
Sending them to my family it would be me & h2b and vice versa for his family but it's personally down to you x
I did my h2b first then my name. I decided on this as we will be Mr & Mrs x
I did h2b an then mine, it sounded better x
Go with what sounds best 🙂 xxx
A lot depends on who is 'hosting' / paying for the wedding - if bride's family then it's bride 1st, if it's groom's family (like Harry & Meghan) it's groom 1st. If it's yourselves then it's whatever you like. But remember the invitations need to be the same
H2b then yours. Traditionally, the man's name always comes first- hence Mr & Mrs x
Before marriage it is her then him, after marriage it is him then her x
Yours go first on all wedding related stationery
ive just received a save the date and it was him then her xx
I believe it is brides name first until after you are married when you switch to hubby's name first on greetings cards etc. Of course this may be an antiquated view so like everything this century it's literally whatever you want
I put my husbands name first on invites and out favours because his name begins with A and mine B and it felt wrong having it the other way around. So it stuck. Do it your way, whatever you think sounds or looks best.
Traditionally bride first
I always thought it was him then her..... husnband and wife. X
I put my name first then H2B. I decided I was more important 😊
all examples i've seen have the brides's name first, so that's what i will have.
Up to you. Which would you prefer?
Traditionally it's the brides name first. I'm sticking with bride first because whenever I write cards etc I always put my name first.
The brides name normally goes first until you are married as traditionally the brides family would pay foe and organise the wedding. My husband wanted his to go first so we did it that way round. I don't think it matters anymore.
Brides name 1st on invites then at wedding when married husbands name on favours 1st and then after. X
The very traditional way was to put your parents full name and that they invite you to the marriage of their daughter (insert brides first name and middle name if she has one but not surname) to (insert grooms full name). That’s the very traditional way, I did this as I liked the traditional way but these days a lot of people just put “you are invited to the wedding of brides name and grooms name” I’ve seen some where it’s the grooms name first as it was alphabetical order. It’s entirely up to you and what you feel looks good xxx
If i send greeting cards to my family then they are from me & him,if it’s to his family them it’s him & me.
Save the dates are not formal so it really doesn’t matter, invitation are different depending of rest of the wording ...
if your parents are hosting then it would be
Mrs & Mrs .......
invite you to the wedding of their daughter miss ......... to mr .............
If you are hosting why not put
We would love you to join us in celebrating our marriage
Then names which ever way round you like
I've always seen the brides name first as traditionally it was all the brides family that paid and organised
Brides name first
I put my husband's name first because it's alphabetical
Traditionally it’s brides name first... but that’s because brides parents would traditionally pay. We paid for it ourselves... so I put his name first on his family and mine first on my family. xxx
Me and my fiancé have booked cedars for our wedding. Save the date for 1st July 2020 but they have given us 2 weeks to pay the deposit.
Would they mind if we pay in like a months time?or would they cancel it
