Eitquette Question of the Week

Question: I am most likely ordering a petite pocket (4x5) invitation ensemble from you but I am worried that my wording won't fit. What words can I abbreviate? Can we use our middle initials to save on space? Anon - Akron, Ohio

Answer:There are only two words that are considered acceptable to abbreviate on a formal invitation and those are: Mount (Mt.) and Saint (St.). As far as using your middle initials, traditional etiquette suggests that you either use the full middle name or leave it out. Initials are not considered acceptable.

Side Note to "Anon": Drop us an email or give us a call to discuss the wording you'd like to use. We can often get creative with the layout which helps with spacing. We would also be happy to offer suggestions on how to condense the wording to better fit. - Steph
