Same First Name

Recommended Posts

Well I think it is awesome that you will have the same names! Regardless of what either of you go by.

 

I had something simliar happen to one of my girlfriends. No one knew that her first name was Barbara because she goes by Lauren. On her wedding invites she put her full name and her close friends started calling her Barbie (mind you she is gorgeous with flawless skin and used to do beauty pageants). She hated it at first, but now embraces and runs with it from time to time.

 

I hope your FI can be "Barbie-like" and start to have fun with your names :o)

I know a couple that has the same first name - Cory. We call them Mr. Cory and Mrs. Cory to differentiate. I think its cute!

I agree that the wedding invitations should be formal with First, Middle & Last names. I have to question how he could be angry, did he not see the invitations before they went out?

 

PS. I also know a friend of a friend, who, if she were to marry her long time BF, she would become Leslie Leslie... that's too funny!

YIKES! it is funny, and his buddy's are too silly. It will eventually die down but geesh....Kelly & Kelly could be really confusing sometimes...Why doesn't he get his name legally changed to Devin kelly instead of keeping it Kelly Devin if he always go by Devin anyways...I hear when you get married that is one of the easiest legal outlets to change your name right on the spot....something to think about....

 

smh.

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
