I am sure you meant high table committee tongue Much love babes kiss


Here's what i found earlier;



Outside of the traditional, formal "Mr. & Mrs. John Doe", the wife's name is ALWAYS first when using first names: "Jane and John Doe". In social importance, the woman is always first, then males, then children.
Crane's Blue Book of Social Stationery, Miss Manners' Guide to Excruciatingly Correct Behavior , and Crane's Wedding Blue Book all verify this longstanding etiquette rule.

And who gave this people the right to dictate what constitutes the right or wrong manner to address a wedding card?
Re: Whose Name Should Come First On The Wedding Invitations? by Busybody2(f): 9:30pm On May 16, 2011
^^^

Etiquette/Good manner/Good breeding/Working Moral compass/Politeness/Considerate Person/etc
Re: Whose Name Should Come First On The Wedding Invitations? by Busybody2(f): 9:42pm On May 16, 2011

Also it is the mark of a gentleman. Etiquette is also employed to safeguard against conflict in social interactions, e.g. OP's wedding.

Like someone in the interior part of a Nigerian village would give a hoot about etiquette from a stranger?

Awww common Ndipe, ain't nothing wrong in being a gentleman and treating us tenderly as the weaker sex we are though grin

BB is that you in your profile? Bootilicious beauty kiss

As regards the topic, he has given it a rest. The card will be out like a month before the day. Who knows, he may not even remember the issue again bc it was like an obsession when we started talking about it and he doesn't even mention it again.

Howbeit, whatever he want he will get it. I have so many things to attend to than fight over whose name should come first on a paper that usually ends in the trash a day after/before the wedding.

We deviated from the regular ways of doing stuff while preparing for our wedding, though not my ideas. i insisted on the norms but my hubby asked who made it mandatory for things to be done that way; the wedding program did not contain names of bridal train, and lots of other stuff, it was ok. we are happily married.

dont allow anything distract you, be wise.

Now this is almost ruining things for me. My man has this weird idea that it's the man that weds the woman and not the other way round, that the idea of putting the woman's name first on the invitation card is a mistake from wherever.

I've checked all the cards in my possession and it's always the woman wedding the man. He has put his legs down that there will be no card if we don't correct that mistake and put his name first sad. I on the other side don't think this is correct undecided.

Please i need your useful contributions before i ruin my perfect plans embarassed
.

It's a man dat weds d woman in Nigeria, but in India a woman marries d man......
