We are going to have a friend announce us, instead of the DJ, but I think we are just going to have him use our first names…"For the first time as husband and wife, FI and Me."

I think, "Please welcome the Happy Couple" works.  Our just our first names too 🙂

We’re going with the first names as well with a friend announcing us.

Or, "Please welcome the newlyweds, Jack and Jill!"  I figure it’s meant to be an announcement of your new status, whether or not you’ve changed your name 🙂

Since I didn’t change my name, I specifically asked our band to announce us with first names only. If I didn’t think they’d remember (which they did), I would’ve written it down since it was important to me.

You could do an at home card, where you can specify that you’re keeping your last name. Or put this in the program. Usually, it says: "Mr. His Name and Mrs. Your Name will be at home on [date] at [address]." You don’t have to include the date if you’re not going on a honeymoon immediately after. But this clearly states that you’re not changing your name.

I’ve been planning on doing the "Please welcome for the first time as husband and wife, (His name) & (My Name)." It has a more formal feeling to it than "Welcome the newlyweds" for me and I’m working to put in as much formality as I can without getting insulting (ie, addressing all of the invitations to Mr. & Mrs. John Smith). Not sure whether we’ll use our full names for the introduction or just our first names, though. Most of our guests are going to be well aware of the fact that I’m keeping my name, but I’m sure there will be some family members from his side who won’t know yet.
