    Can you not just put their names? I would think it's odd to have my place card read "Magill Family" if it was only meant for myself and my husband.

    Actually clarification, this is for the welcome dinner & the paperless post requires a name but I only have one email for most couples.

    The wedding invite my fiance and I recently got had both our full names. I'd say if it's a new relationship you can just say "main person and guest". If it's a long term committed thing it will look better to use both names (Jane Smith and John Johnson)

    I’d use their names. You could have a married couple with different last names too. Or a family with different last names.

    We used paperless post for our save the dates and for friends we used everyone’s first names (e.g., John & Jane). For our older relatives we used their titles (Uncle John & Aunt Jane)

    Another vote to use their names. The problem with using "family" even for married couples is that it implies the whole family is invited including children. I'd only use Smith Family if that is truly what you intend. If it is a couple I'd go with Jane & John Doe or Jane Smith & John Doe depending on the last names.

    For couples that are dating and not married, I'm just putting "John & Jane" on the invite. We are doing individual place cards.
