I would think, “Mr John Smith and Mrs Jane Doe” would be fine…..or just leave it at “Mr and Mrs John and Jane Smith”…..its not like what is said at that point becomes your official name. I see it as more of a symbol of your union.

llevinso:  I’m not changing my name. I asked our officiant to say “…the newlyweds (my first name) and (FI’s first name)”

mrsfry2015: No, but it sets the tone for your social circle. If you don’t want your friends and family to call you Mrs. Jane Smith, I wouldn’t introduce yourself to them as Mr. and Mrs. John Smith.

OP, you could say “I present to you for the first time as a married couple, John Smith and Jane Doe” or leave off the last names, “I present to you the newlyweds, John and Jane”

I’m getting married in six days and not taking my husband’s name. We’re being announced as Mr. John Smith and Ms. Jane Doe (I specifically asked for Ms. vs Mrs., it just seemed to make more sense for me.)
