I think “Charlie and Lucinda Brown” works perfectly.

I think “Charlie and Lucinda Brown” works perfectly too,but if you absolutely don’t want to lose the titles, you could do “Mr. and Mrs. Charles and Lucinda Brown.” That is really long and awkward, though.

I addressed all mine differently depending on how traditional I thought the couple was, whether I knew a spouse’s name, age, or how close I am to them.

Several of the bridal party members are married, so for theirs and other close married friends I used the form:

“Mr. Charlie and Mrs. Lucinda Brown.”  Just slightly awkward, but I think it works.  As you can see, I’m no member of the etiquette police. 🙂

We did all of ours as “Lucinda and Charlie Brown” – i read somewhere that you are never supposed to separate the man’s first name from the lastname.
