    Mr and Mrs John and Jane Smith

    πŸ™‚

    ETA: Here’s why we decided against all 3 of your options: the first one is his parents, haha; the second isn’t gender equality friendly, and we’re pretty big on that; we do like the sound of Mr and Mrs, since it’ll be our wedding day, and the third leaves that out.

    I’m all for “Mr. and Mrs. John Smith”  I am big on tradition and I think it sounds classy. πŸ™‚

    @ddw: I prefer this version too, so I didn’t vote in the poll.

    I also briefly entertained Mr John and Mrs Jane Smith, but only briefly. πŸ™‚

    Call me a grammar rebel I guess.

    We’re not because we’ll be introduced at the end of the ceremony which is in the same venue as the reception and we are not having additional people at the reception, which seems to be the current trend. Plus neither of us have seen reception introductions in real life as they are redundant. To each their own.

    Go with whichever you like best.

    At the end of the ceremony, the officiant said something like “and now, the newly married [His first name] and [my first name]” – I kept my last name. 

    We didn’t get introduced into the reception, it didn’t seem necessary, and everyone was mingling and being seated when we entered.

    I’m old-fashioned, I like the idea of “becoming one” and taking his name. Everyone already knows your names as separate entities, but after you’re married it’s a new introduction under a new, shared, name. Just my 2 cents πŸ™‚

    I love how there are no options for a woman who kept her name.

    We did “For the first time as husband and wife, hisfirst and myfirst.”

    @Beelieve: I agree with what you said, but that doesn’t alter the fact that I’m not taking his first name. I’m not becoming Mrs. John Smith, I’m becoming Mrs. Jane Smith.

    We were introduced as Mr. and Mrs. John and Jane Smith. And I’m also a grammar nerd.

    @chicagobride092010: Even if you keep your last name, such that you *legally* don’t share your husband’s last name, socially, you still can be Mrs. Jane/John Smith. Thus, being introduced as Mr. and Mrs. John and Jane Smith is still an okay thing to do–but it may not be your preference.
