Who's name comes first?

When it comes to wedding stuff who's name should come first? I know it's tradition for the brides name to go first because typically her parents host the wedding. In our case we payed for everything but the reception dinner, my FMIL is paying for that. She made a HUGE deal about my name coming first on our wedding invites. She highly recommended that everything else should have the grooms name first.

    She's wrong. And what a ridiculous thing for her to be up in arms about. Why on earth would she be insisting her son's name go first on everything?!
    What did you think would happen if you walked up to a group of internet strangers and told them to get shoehorned by their lady doc?~StageManager14

    Has your FMIL seen many wedding invitations, like ever? The brides name is ALWAYS first.

    Ladies first. Maybe you could show her some invite samples? Those always have the brides name first.

    Also, kristbot I love your siggy gif! I live with my FIL's and we usually have rabbits (the last two recently passed away).  Whenever I see that gif it reminds me of their adorable little antics. ^_^

    ditto. Ladies first. Plus, I've heard that you shouldn't split the man's first and last name up.
