For last names on announcements and signs, is it Bride-Groom or Groom-Bride? For Sally Smith and Bob Jones. Is it the Smith-Jones wedding or the Jones-Smith wedding?

It would be Bride-Groom, i.e., Smith-Jones.

What a great question! The bride's name always goes first (Bride/Groom Wedding) or Sally and Jim. The man's name is never separated ~ it's always written Sally and Jim Smith.

Hope that helps!
