I get asked quite a lot during consultations,
"Who goes first?"
This questions is usually referring to the couple's names and quite often sparks a lively debate amongst the couples.
When thinking about invitations, some people love to stick to tradition, however, in today's society traditions are changing... and fast.
Traditionally, the woman's name would go first, as years ago, the bride's parents would be expected to pay for the wedding and the invitations would therefore be addressed from them.
More and more couples are financing their own weddings to date and therefore the invitations are quite often from the couples themselves. This leads to many conversations about who should go first.
Some couples choose to follow tradition anyway, some prefer to go in alphabetical order and others really aren't that fussed either way.
The beauty of my job is that I can make invitations however people want them so the choice is really theirs to make.
I wholeheartedly believe that you should have your stationery how you want it and encourage people not to worry too much about right or wrong and traditions and go with what you prefer as a couple.
Happy planning! :)
January is getting booked up pretty quickly with lots of consultations booked in already and some wedding fayres coming up too. I love meeting new couples so if you are in a quandary about invites or table stationery feel free to give me a shout.
Just a reminder that I offer 'no obligation ' consultations. Come and have a look at some samples, chat through your ideas and if you would like to order then great but if not there will be no pressure from me. Weddings can be stressful enough to plan without added pressure from suppliers. Happy planning! 😀
