    I typically see it with no last names listed for either the bride or the groom as the last names are listed with the parents.  So it would look like this:



    Ned and Jane Smith
    request the pleasure of your company
    at the marriage of their daughter
    Rachel Marie
    to
    Daniel Joshua
    son of
    Steven and Jacqueline Jones

    You don’t have to, but we did since DH’s parents are divorced and remarried. So only his father has the same last name.

    I didn’t put MY last name on the invite, since it was my parents (who are married and still together) who invited everyone to witness the marriage.
