    You could do a hybrid and say: Mr. and Mrs. John and Jane Doe.

    I had two envelopes, so I put both names on the inside, but I’m an old fashioned girl, and I like the Mr, & Mrs. John Smith.  For married couple with different last names I used Mr. John Doe & Mrs. Jane Smith.

    I like Mr. and Mrs. John and Jane Doe. That’s how we did ours and I thought it looked really nice.

    I would just like to stick in a plea here to somehow include the woman’s name on the envelope (as you seem to want to).

    I’m all for “it’s your wedding and you can do it HOWEVER you want” but I am not Mrs. HisFirst HisLast, nor will I ever be. I changed my LAST name for the sake of ease and for our future children, but giving up my first name too, that’s like giving up my entire identity into his. And that is NOT the way this works anymore. In complete honesty, it offends me every time someone addresses me without my name (including my future sister in law whose wedding invite I got yesterday). 

    Again – it’s your wedding, do what you like. But it really hurts to feel like I have been subsumed by my husband just because I gave up my last name and makes me regret the decision every time I see that.
