My first middle name is Elizabeth as well, my second one is Joyce. I'm named after my Grandmothers.

I have thought about this a lot. I am keeping my last name as my middle name cause I don't have a middle name anyway! This is so I am not completely getting rid of my last name. I'm sllightly attached but not in a major way so I though this might work. It's weird thinking of being Mrs. Mason because that's HIS mom! There will be less confusion if we all have the same last name when we have kids though- that was my thinking.

I plan to hyphenate my name. Our son shares his last name, Williams so that is good. Plus despite the fact that he is very responsbile, as a child of divorced parents, I choose not to change it on credit cards and financial documents.

This is a hard one for me.. .I honestly can't decide.

This is my 2nd marraige and I had such a hard time getting everything changed back to my maiden name after my 1st marraige; that I have grown very possessive of my name. I know it may sound strange; but after a horrid first marraige and the constant reminder of it while I was trying to get everything changed back -- my maiden name began to really take on a new meaning to me and the new identity I had after my first marraige.

 

That all being said, FI doesn't care either way. He has offered to take my name.. LOL! Part of me wants to take his name for our children etc.. but part of me likes my name too.

 

Decisions, decisions!

I'm hyphenating on all legal documents, credit cards, etc. But I will use his last name socially...this way when we have kids we'll all fall under one last name wink.gif He's not too thrilled about me hyphenating and wants me to drop my last name but I am attached to it.

Im not interested in keeping my last name or hyphenating it. I like my last name, but I'd rather have the same one as my husband, pain in the ass it may be to change it or not. Im going from short and sweet "Sloan" to "Watmough" - sounds like Watmo.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
