My return address stamp saved me not only money (I didn’t have to pay my calligrapher extra) but it saved guests’ eyes by not having to look at my god-awful handwriting. I’ve also used it a gazillion times SINCE my wedding, for thank-you notes, birthday cards, etc.
Here are some adorable Etsy.com return address options. I personally recommend going with a self-inking stamp versus a rubber stamp that you have to buy a separate ink pad for. I used a stamp with a separate ink pad, and I had a hard time getting a perfect impression on the envelope. For a handful of them, the return address came out blurry or too faded.
IMPORTANT TIP: Make sure you stamp the return address on the envelopes BEFORE you take them to the calligrapher. You don’t want to make a mistake on the envelopes you’ve already paid for them to do.
*This is a great option if you’re in a rush. This seller can get you the stamp in 1-3 business days.

NOTE: Technically, you’re not supposed to use the same last name until AFTER your married. If you’re traditional, I would opt instead for both of your first names.
If you’re not into stamps, another option would be labels. This designer has some cute designs:
