Everyday Etiquette – Parents Names on Invitations

Question:

On the wedding invitations wording is it proper to put the fathers full name or is it okay to just put the middle initial…for example:
Mr. & Mrs. Robert E. Greene   or should it be
Mr. & Mrs. Robert Edward Greene?

Thanks,
Linda

The Everyday Etiquette Answer:

Linda,

If you want to follow traditional wedding invitation etiquette, you would use your father’s full name. Initials are really not supposed to be included. If your dad has a middle name that he dislikes then you should use no middle name such as:

Mr. and Mrs. Robert Greene

Ms. Carey
