Wording invitation when I don't have a middle name?

So I know most invites say:

Mr. and Mrs. Blah
request the pleasure of your company
at the marriage of their daughter

Sue Jane

to

John Peter Jones

Well I have no middle name.  FI does, and I'm thinking it'll look super weird to just have my first name and his full name in there. FYI my first name is 6 characters, his first, middle and last names are all 6 characters each, so 18 total.  Should I skip his middle name?

I'm probably overthinking this, but I just don't want it to look weird...

Thanks!

    It's okay if one or both of you don't have middle names. They don't to be the same length. But use both your full names on the invitation.

    Okay thanks ladies!  I was just worried it would look lopsided with just my first name and his full name but I will keep it that way.

  • I think it might look better if the lettering is centered instead of being aligned to the left.

  • I don't have a middle name either.  Our invitations read like this:

    FirstName LastName

    &

    FirstName MiddleName LastName Suffix

    It's centered on the page and looks just fine.  We're paying for the majority of the wedding ourselves so neither of our parents names are included, just ours.  Don't worry to much about it, it's not like you can help not having a middle name!
  • We didn't even include middle names on ours. I know it's the norm, but oh well. FI never ever uses his middle name and mine's just too long for that nonsense. 

    I think it will be fine to write out your names using only his middle. I may not even notice that his is there and your isn't.
