    @HonoraryNerd:  eh, I would feel kinda weird if I got a wedding invitation with the new last name on it. I would think y’all had already gotten married.

    I would get first names for the invites, then order a new one for thank you cards if you want with the new last name.

    I would assume you were married already and having a pretty princess party, not a wedding

    @HonoraryNerd:  We ordered return address labels.  3 sets of them.  Invites are going out with my maiden last name and his name.  The thank you cards I ordered for any pre-wedding events/help (showers, bachelorettes, help with all the wedding bits) is just my name as they’re just from me (and they match the cards).  We have ordered our wedding thank you cards as well (we’ll print 4x6s of one of our preview photos and include that inside the card).  The return address labels for those are myfirstname & hisfirstname hislastname.

    So Jane Brown & John Smith.  Jane Brown.  And Jane & John Smith.  🙂

    I got ours without last names.  We don’t even live together yet.  i thought it would be too weird to have his last name only and really long to include full names.  And this way it won’t be necessary to get a new one later unless we just decide we want to.  But I anticipate using this one for thank you cards as well.

    Although it may seem  wasteful, I would bite the bullet and plan on ordering two stamps — one to use now, and another with your shared last name to use after your wedding. After all, it’s easier than having to handwrite your return address on all of the envelopes, and it’s less expensive than having it engraved, letterpressed, embossed, thermographed, or printed on all of your outer envelopes.

    I had a somewhat similar situation with my informals (thank you notes) that I ordered. I ordered ones with my maiden-name monogram to send following my shower, and I have many left over that I’ve never used.  I then ordered engraved informals in the format of “Pastor and Mrs. Hisname” that I sent following the wedding.
