Okay so we’re already married my last name is legally named and all that good stuff and everyone knows we’re married butttt our wedding is in November.
Invites are very formal and have our full names however now that my last name has changed should I put my new last name, leave it with old last name, or just use our first names.
I have NOT ordered these yet but have to order them soon.

I used my maiden name, people knew we were married but people still knew me under my maiden name so I sent them out like that. I’ve also seen where it says something like: Mr. And Mrs. Smith wish to invite you to the wedding of their daughter Jane Ann to Paul Andrew Thompson son of blah blah blah. Then you could skip the last name altogether.

eecuadrado: the most formal and traditional way would be to list your parents at the top and then you First Middle to FI 1st Middle Last – which would leave it very conveniently vague!

“YourFirstName MarriedLastName and HisFirstName MarriedLastName invite you to celebrate their marriage”

You’ve legally changed your name already, so you can’t really use your maiden name. If you want to avoid doing so, you’ll have to make your invites less formal and just use, “YourFirstName and HisFirstName HisLastName”.

I would use your married name, and phrase the invites like “celebrating their marriage” instead of “invited to the wedding” so its perfectly clear you’re getting weddinged and not married

You are already married and have legally changed your name accordingly. So your invitations ought to go out in that name. Also, you should make it clear that you are inviting your guests to celebrate your marriage. Because you aren’t getting married but you are wanting to celebrate that happy occasion with the people who couldn’t attend your actual wedding.

I would just put Mr. & Mrs. First Name Last Name, invite you to celebrate their marriage…etc.
