Darling Husband and I had a small Destination Wedding and our Christmas card is also serving as a sort of announcement to our extended families that we got married. We’re going to include two photos and a short paragraph about when/where our wedding happened and then a holiday wish.
I would really like to include our full names somwhere but I’m not sure how to do it without it look/feeling awkward. I kept my name and our return address stamp just has our first names along with our apartment number. There’s a place to sign on the front of the card, and a block for writing inside the card, and on the back of the card but I can’t think of a smooth way to suddenly write our full names.
What have some of you done with different names? Help!

We put our full names on our holiday card…
At the end (after the holiday greeting)
John Smith and Jane Doe
ETA: for the return address, I just used the address (and skipped using names completely)

@oracle: thank you! do you think it would make more sense on the outside of the card, under the design greeting where it says,
A & J”
Or underneath the paragraph inside the card about our wedding? I’m leaning toward on the inside but honestly, we don’t usually have folded cards to begin with so I’m confusing myself here.

@artichokey: We had a folded card. On the outside it was supposed to say “The Smith Family” but we out our first names “John & Jane” instead (I thought first and last would be too formal/awkward)…. so it was the inside where we signed it first and last names…. that’s what I’d recommend doing for your folded card (first names or intials on the outside and full names on the inside signature part – after the paragraph about your wedding)

Thanks! I think that looks good! I just have to figure out what photos to use now. Oy.
