So my FI and I coincidentally have the same last name (and no, we’re not related!).Â We don’t necessarily want to highlight this fact by saying "Jane Doe & John Doe invite you to their wedding…", but we know we have to include our last name somewhere in the invite.
Here’s the best version we’ve come up with:
"Together with their families
Jane Michelle &
John Michael Doe
Request the honor of your presence…"
Having his last name printed and not mine makes it sound like either we’re already married or he’s my dad, but we don’t have any better options at this point.Â Any suggestions?Â Thanks!

I think what you’ve come up with works, but my sister is currently a bridesmaid for her best friend’s wedding and the bride and groom have the same last name as well and I believe they just went ahead with addressing their invite with the same last name.

You can always go ultra-traditional, and write:
YourMom and YourDad
Request the honor of your presence
At the wedding of their daughter,
To John Michael Doe,
Son of HisMom and HisDad.
Date, Time, etc.
Because in the really old fashioned format I don’t believe that you use anything but the bride’s given name. If your parents aren’t the only ones hosting, however, it could get a bit tricky. Maybe
YourMom and YourDad
HisMom and His Dad
Request the honor of your presence at the marriage of their children,

I like the option tanya2s left…but what if you went w/ the uniqueness of this situation and said something along the lines of:
Both sets of the Doe families request the honor of your attendance at the wedding of
I am sure you could pretty it up and make it a bit more charming! Good Luck!

That is a cute option, but we have moms who have taken stepdad’s last names and grandparents who are like parents and so we wanted to sum it up neatly with "together with their families…"
But I like the playful/charming suggestion…hmmm…

Lucky you! No worries about changing your name! I am jealous!
If your wedding leans a little more to the casual side of things, you could just leave last names off entirely:
Together with their families
