Mr. and Mrs. or Mr. and Dr.?

I disagree with some of the ladies bc I've been to a wedding where he was a doc and they annouced "Dr. and Mrs so and so", you're still a couple whether your a mrs or a dr but just like you've earned the mrs title, you've also earned the dr title...go for it!

Maybe because I don't have any friends with a doctor title, I have to agree that it does seem a little awkward (whether its for a Mr Dr or a Mrs.Dr) and that the whole point of announcing the new couple is for just that - the Mr and Mrs part of being a couple. When you earned your doctorate, you were introduced as Dr, so on your wedding day you're celebrating becoming a Mrs so I think be introduced that way!
Otherwise maybe think of it in terms of introducing "husband and wife"... if you were thinking of that route, you wouldn't necessarily use "husband and doctor" . I know that's a bit of a silly example but just a different perspective. Do you really feel like you need the Mr and Mrs/Dr title anyways? What about "Let me introduce the new couple - (HisName) & (YourName) LastName" and then you wouldn't have to worry about proper titles??

However, I will play devil's advocate a bit though and say that I've been to many weddings where male physicians were married, and they introduced the couple as "Dr. and Mrs. Jones".
Basically, I'm saying it's your choice:) You should be proud of your accomplishments! And you're not diminishing them in anyway by not being announced as a Dr. ...you're just being you. How does your FI feel?

If it were a man in MOST cases it would be Dr and Mrs as with ministers Rev and Mrs.
So I would start with your FI. How does he feel what does he recommend? For me that would be the only opinion that would really matter to me.
Now, I would say on all the favors, programs and etc it should simply be YOUR NAME and HIS NAME.
But if you want to be introduced as Mr and Dr....it's your wedding do what you want!
