DoctorGirl had a great question in my other post about how to be announced after they kiss and say "I DO" because she isnt taking her husbands last name…so all you brides who are keeping your last name how are you or how did you announce yourselves as a new couple? And for brides who are taking his last name or did…how did you or will you be announced after you say "I Do" ???? The Hive wants to know!

I haven’t really thought about this, but I figured we’d just be announced as "HisFirstName and MyFirstName are now married" or something like that.
I have two friends who got married last year and neither of them took their husband’s last name (Puerto Ricans too, hence no name change). On one of the weddings, the couple was announced as "The Newlyweds, HerFirstName and HisFirstName!". In the other wedding, the couple was announced as "His Full Name and Her Full Name, newly married" (their last names didn’t match, obviously). So I thought we’d do something like that.
I do know we’ll have to be announced twice somehow, because half the guest list doesn’t speak English and the other half doesn’t speak Spanish, so we have to do everything bilingually/twice… not sure how we’re going to work that out though…

I think, "the newly married couple, John Jones and Jane Smith" works. A certain number of people will just assume that the woman has changed her name, so this serves to keep the number of repetitions of, "So how does it feel to be Mrs. Jones?" to a minimum.
