‘Drs Dennis and Fay Riddle’ seems to be the closest parallel to the traditional wording. I also like ‘Dr Dennis Riddle and Dr Fay Riddle’ – I think spelling ‘Doctors’ out would look awkward, but maybe that’s just me. 🙂

my SO and i are both Drs and when we get things addressed to us it’s usually:


My parents are the same and i used that wording on the invitations for our wedding.

I believe it’s supposed to be Drs. Dennis and Fay Riddle – assuming your mom uses her married name professionally?

My two cents worth:  It is proper to use either “The Doctors Riddle, OR “Doctor Dennis Riddle and Doctor Faye Riddle” (my preference,I think…each having their own “status recognition”) and I’ve been asked to do it both ways by clients.  Most recently I did a wedding for a neurosurgeon at Johns Hopkins where 90% were doctors and he wanted all the names and “doctor” spelled out for each one and the names for the husband and wife doctors to be on separate lines.  Hope this helps.  (Hopefully I posted this the right way this time!)

I vote for “Doctor Dennis Riddle and Doctor Faye Riddle”. I think it looks nicer that way & it does give your mom her own props for having a PhD! 🙂
