If they share the same last name, its Drs. x & x last name.

Per The Knot

If a wife and husband are both doctors, the outer and inner envelopes should be addressed to: "The Doctors Rosenthal." It’s that simple! If they’re married but have different last names, list both names in alphabetical order on separate lines: "Dr. Rosenthal" followed by "Dr. Schwartz".

What JanainCO said about two doctors with the same name is correct. 

I will say, though, that the names on separate lines indicates that individuals are not married, so if they have different last names, it should be Dr. X Lastname and Dr. Y Lastname.

I had no idea how complicated wedding invitations could be!  I’m not at that point yet – but I probably should be. 😉

The Crane and Co. website also has an exhaustive section on address protocols…

Sounds like you got a great answer, I just wanted to say I feel for you with addressing thing! 

We did away with titles completely, in part because we’re casual, and in part because I couldn’t abide having to write "The Honorable and Mr." for a judge and her husband.  (Though I rather like the gender switch, I felt bad for poor "Mr."!)
