Wedding Invitation Etiquette Question: Which Name?

Wedding Invitation Wording

Full Name, Maiden Name or First Married Name?


My question is: when writing my invitations for my second marriage, should I use my full maiden name or my current legal name? I did not return to my maiden name after divorcing because of my children. Our invitations will be informal, but I think we should use our full names. However, mine would be rather ostentatious looking and sounding if I used all four names. Do I drop my middle name, my maiden name or my first married name?

Thank you,


Hello Julia,

If your wedding is informal, full names aren’t typically used on the invitations.  Moreover, you would use the name you are using now, which would be your legal name. 

Congratulations on your upcoming wedding!

Most sincerely,
