Do either of you have a checking account at this point?  My guess is if you both sign they will take it.

Go together to the bank. You should be able to sign the check and deposit to his account or vice versa.

ETA: If you are planning to get a joint account, now would be a good time to open it since you will probably get several wedding checks like this

Just deposit it in his account, since it has his name on it. It’s not really a problem, banks dont care, just endorse it on the back.  I’ve deposited checks to Mr & Mrs his last name into my account (and I hadnt changed my name) and it wasnt a problem.

No. Banks understand that this kind of thing happens a lot. H and I got a lot of checks for Mr. and Mrs. Hislastname and the bank honored them even though I never changed my name. If you are unsure, call your bank and ask what they suggest. Probably both of you need to sign the check to deposit it

You’ll both need to endorse, but that should be all that’s required.
