What a fun discussion, and I had to think about it. I guess I've always put the man's initial first, and didn't consider that it might not be the way to go. Boy, am I that old?? ;)
Do let us know what you decide on, Edith!

Thanks Marion, we are going to try to look further at the etiquet in the UK, see if we can find what they say.Thanks for your help, hugs edith
Entwining would be the easy way out, but if you think your initials are better separate, I'd stitch the man's first.
It is C for bride and M for groom, so not easy entwined. Also hav enice free design for it , is better with letters each side of the heart, but thanks Mops for your input. Hugs edith
Unfortunately - it is the groom first.........
thanks hugs edith
I agree with Gerry the groom's name always first. Marie
thanks Marie, hugs edith
I would say the mans initial first, :) hugs
thanks hugs edith
Here in Aus and I guess in England, I was taught the ladies name comes first because we have a Queen. When there is a King at the Thrown then the man comes first. xx
thanks for your answer. Hugs edith
here in the Netherlands the name of the man comes first. Some people don't know that anymore, but it is tradition for a wedding: first the man's name and than the wife's.
I agree gerry :)
thank you both, hugs edith
Yes, and before the wedding it's the other way round.

You could entwine the initials, hugs Helen
thanks Helen, the design is such that it is better each initial apart. thanks for the link too. Will check. Hugs edith
What is interesting here is that in the Wikipedia it states that on linen it is the womans initial first. Now would a small bag come under that I wonder. Mightely confusing.
