I will be putting the three initials on a wedding cake...brides first initial, grooms first initial and grooms last initial. I know the last initial goes in the middle but does it matter whose initial is first? I'm kinda thinking the groom is but not sure.

It doesn't matter but you can ask your customer what they prefer.

I always ask the bride how she wants it done .. I dont' guess, I dont' suggest, I don't assume. They pick the order, so that way, I'm never wrong in how it goes on and there is no conversation on how they want a full refund because the letters were backwards.! icon_biggrin.gif

traditional etiquette books say the bride's first initial goes first, hth.
