Which order for names do you use?
Guy & Girl
Girl & Guy
We mix it up.
This is pointless...I want my 10 seconds back.

Jack & Jill or Jill & Jack?

It seems like fairly common practice these days is to list the girl's name first when posting images. I am not sure when we started doing it that way, but we have been for a while...probably because we are used to talking with the bride more, so we are used to using her name. Also, we might have made the switch intentionally somewhat when we realized that the girls out there were our target client more than the guys . Lately I have mixed it up a few times for no apparent reason

Do you think it matters which way the names are listed? Do you think people even care? Do you have an intentional reason why you do it the way you do it?

Just a question out of curiosity more than anything.

Ladies first. Let them in the door first, sit them down first, shove them out of the burning airplane first (with or without a parachute, your choice)

Ladies first for me. However I do have some clients request the guys name first when I print something.

As I never separate a gentleman from his surname, this usually has me listing the ladies name first.

(love davidwegs response!)

haha...too funny. Yes, I am very happily married to a wife I prefer to myself constantly

I find it a curious thing to know how things develop and how there are different protocols for different situations (such as, I have never once heard "and I now present Mrs and Mr Jill and Jack Doe.")

I used to work with a very conservative set who insisted that as the head of the household the man's name needed to be first always. Other than that we tend to put the bride first.

It was just a small-talk question...not everything has to be a life or death topic.

Well in fairness, if you don't put Shannon first you'll be a dead man

Sometimes people want to avoid looking a little "silly". Sometimes people think it's all good fun.

I had clients (Helen & Michael) who had the letters "H&M" made in flowers, and displayed on the walls in the reception above the head table. They specifically avoided that order though, as H&M is a clothing line... So went with M&H. Yeah, great story.

Her name first on everything except the album. All my brides have insisted on having his name first on the book.
