    It could be Future Mrs. Firstname Newlastname or Ms. Current Name.  Who is coming to your shower? If it’s mostly friends and family from your side, then I would use your current name so they recognize who the shower is honoring.

    I’ve always seen it as “The Future Mrs. Smith,” but I think using “the Future Mrs. Jane Smith” sounds fine too.

    Mine say:

    Bridal Shower Honoring MyFirstName MyCurrentLastName

    Bride to be of FI’sFirstName FI’sLastName

    ETA: We did it this way so guests would either recognize my last name or his (or both), its kind of the best of both worlds, because you have your current last name there, and your future one.
