Why not? If I got an invitation worded “Mr. and Mrs. John and Jane Doe” I wouldn’t think twice.

I think it’s supposed to be…Mr. John and Mrs. Jane Doe.


I think, for women’s sake, it should read: Jane and John Doe.

No.  It’s not proper etiquette to list names that way, plus it looks awkward.  If you want to list their full names, it should just read Jane and John Doe.  A women’s name always goes first when listed this way, because you don’t separate a man’s name from his last name.

My mom had the same request- she wanted it to be :

 John and Jane Doe

Personally, I didn’t like the sound of it as much as Mr. and Mrs. John Doe…so I stuck with that. However, if it doesn’t matter to you one way or another, I think it’s totally fine to word it that way- it won’t matter to any of your guests!

It’s either formal as Mr. And Mrs. John Doe or informal as Jane and John Doe.
