Ok, so I am about to order an anniversary book for me and my wife and I'm a tad confused on who's name should go first...

For example, should it be:

1. Chris & Melissa Smith

2. Melissa & Chris Smith

Please help me clear this up - thanks!

Outside of the traditional, formal “Mr. & Mrs. John Doe”, the wife’s name is ALWAYS first when using first names: “Jane and John Doe”

I would say ladies first AND it is also polite to put another person's name before yours (you are the husband so you have two reasons to put her name first ). :)

I agree with the first two replies. Put her name first.

Generally i find people put their own names first or the name first of the relative. So my MIL writes "hubs and nik." My mom writes "nik and hubs." Does it matter? Not really. If it's for a present probably her name since it's her present.

Our names happen to sound better with the hubs' first so that's how I ordered address labels recently....personal preference but if it's an anniversary book for her, honor her with hers first.
