which name first on invitations

Hi ladies! I need your help! I was wondering which name should appear first on our invitations? Does it have any importance? Should the groom’s name be first or the bride?

    Traditionally it's the bride's name first.

    Hi Olivia!

    It's such a joy to read your posts! Smiley heart Thanks for bringing up the question!

    Traditionnally the name of the bride went first in the invitations since her family was organizing and planning the wedding... but things have changed since! So feel free to put either your name or his name first. Smiley smile
