Order of Names
by: Sandra

Why is the bride's name printed first? Is it because the bride's parents are footing the bill? In some cases, established couples marry and they are the primary financial providers. Would the groom's name be printed first?


The bride comes first in everything wedding, think in terms of ladies first. It has nothing to do with who is paying for the wedding. In all wedding stationary the bride's name will come first because after all once you say, "I do." the wife will come last (Mr & Mrs, not Mrs. and Mr.).
