Friends of ours are getting married next week & we just learned that the bride is keeping her last name. How do we address their invitations? Mr John Doe & Mrs Jane Smith?

I would think exactly the way that you just wrote it. Mr. John Smith & Ms. Mary Jones. That's what I am doing.

Some women who don't change their name use the Mr. and Mrs. title for social purposes. I had the same situation and I asked the couple how I should address their invitation

It depends on the relationship with the couple. If say the wife is your friend it would be

Mrs. Mary Jones
Mr. John Smith

If the relationship is with the husband it would be the other way with Mr John Smith first.

Not sure what is right but this is what I am doing....

I only have the situation where the wife is my/our friend. In any case where I have this I am not close to the husband. I am addressing the outer envelope to the girl (Ms. Melissa Smith) and on the inner envelope I am putting both first names (Melissa and Dennis).
