Q: We're doctors—how do we use our titles?

A: As far as the invitation goes, it depends on the formality of your wedding. For example, if the invitation would normally list the groom as "Mr. Jack Smith," writing "Dr. Jack Smith" is entirely correct. Each of your names will be on separate lines of the invitation, so you'll need to restate your titles (Dr. Lisa R. Walsh to Dr. Jack Smith). When you enter the reception, have the band leader say, "introducing for the first time as man and wife, the Doctors Smith," or some variation thereof.
