You know how they usually introduce a couple for the first time something along the lines of “please welcome Mr. and Mrs. his last name..” So, my guy is a Dr. should it be announced as “Dr. and Mrs. his last name”? But that sounds weird to me. Plus, he is a medical doctor but I am an academic doctor of philosophy, so why should he be the Dr and I am not? Maybe it should be “Dr. and Dr. his last name”??? But I know academics are not usually announced as Dr. Also, I am keeping my name, so I am not technically “Mrs. His last name”.
What are some ways the MC can introduce us? Maybe without titles? just by our first names? Ahhhh this is annoying 🙂

“Now, for the first time as Husband and Wife….First Name and First Name!!!!!”
I think that’d be the most fun and light…your names seem complicated!! 🙂

I agree with PP. The simplist thing would be to use first names only and I think that would be fine…. I’m not changing my name either, but I threw Fiance a bone and said we could still be introduced as Mr and Mrs LastName, which is fine with me in keeping with the spirit of the day.

How about Dr’s John & Jane Doe?
That’s how I addressed the invitation to our Senior Pastor and his wife… b/c they are both Pastors….
BUT since it is now Mr & Mrs and ya’ll are just married it might be nice to hear it just Mr & Mrs. and drop the Dr altogether?

Drop the Dr’s! Sounds pretentious.
And while you’re not taking his name, I was at my friends’ wedding where they were referred to as Mr. and Mrs. HisLastName. No one really questioned it and no one will really remember.
Otherwise, I’d do what MissDallas is recommending.

Hubs and I are both Dr. and we did what PP suggested… for the first time as husband and wife, first name and first name. It worked out well.

I didn’t take DH’s last name either, so we were just introduced by our first names, just like MissDallas put it.

I don’t see why you can’t get the Dr. title either, you are one. But if it’s a bit of a problem, you can just go with both your first names or just go with the last name, “introducing the Smiths”. It’s really your call, I don’t think there are any rules here so just do whatever you and your groom are most comfortable with. Best of luck 🙂
