    Traditionally, the bride's name goes before the groom's.

    That’s what I thought. My fiancé made made me second guess myself because he said he never seen the woman’s name first.

    Traditionally the bride’s name comes first on everything before the wedding. After marriage, the husband’s name comes first.

    I've always seen it based on how the names sound together:

    Ashley and Tanner (us haha)

    Steve and Holly (bride's parents)

    Kathy and Vince (groom's parents)

    Amanda and Mike (bride's sister/brother-in-law)

    David and Megan (groom's brother/sister-in-law)

    We do whatever flows better. Haha

    We did my name first - and I think that's pretty common. However, we went with it because I thought "Katelyn & Richard" sounded better than "Richard & Katelyn" Smiley xd
