Sorry, I think I missed that it was 1st class, but that's a requirement for that trip anyway (at least for the train portion). Indeed what you paid is the half fare price for two people and for 1st class. So you are correct and you do need a Swiss Half Fare Card for each of you. You can buy that online and print it at home, please see the purchase options here: www.myswissalps.com/sw isshalffarecard/price.
You also need tickets Lucerne to Wengen. The price of that is indeed CHF 23.70 each for Swiss Half Fare Card holders and for 2nd class.
This could have been a lot cheaper though. A Saver Day Pass, if purchased well in advanced, would have cost you only CHF 48 per person for 1st class, because you will have a Swiss Half Fare Card: www.myswissalps.com/sa verdaypass/price. Total costs including reservations would have been CHF 130, 1st class all the way to Wengen, instead of CHF 229.40. There's no point in cancelling your tickets unfortunately, because Saver Day Passes for your travel date are more expensive by now. On a positive note: without a Swiss Half Fare Card this trip would have been much more expensive.
