I’d address it to their current names.  If you know that she is changing her name, I suppose you could use “The Future Mr. & Mrs. ____”

My husband’s family all knows that I haven’t changed my name and am not changing my name. They still insist upon addressing me as Mrs. HusbandsLastName.  It irritates me on two levels since if you are using an honorific for me, it’s Dr. MaidenName.

elizabethbride :  I really like that idea of saying “Future Mr & Mrs.” I think its really cute. I will use that approcah when sendning out my invites next month. We are not getting married until June but people sent Christmas cards to our house already addressing me as “Mrs”. It didn’t bother me at all.

Whirlwind03 :  I never changed my last name and we’ve been married almost 40 years. People still mail things to me adresses to MyFirst HisLast, or a hyphenated last name. The biggest offender – his mother, of course; her other son’s wife didn’t change her last name, either.

I was always taught it was bad luck to regularly call a woman by her married name before the wedding. 

Also, if you don’t know whether or not she’s changing her name, don’t call her Mrs. HisLastName.

bbridetobee :  Two last names. What if she’s not changing her name? I don’t mind when people address me wrong but some get salty.
