If you want to keep yoour maiden name (like a middle name) you should be able to assume your married name without hyphenating.
I too was not planning on changing my name, but when I returned, I changed my mind. If it's good enough for him, it's good enough for me (but it's definatley taking some getting used to! I am the butt of many jokes lately!
Professionally I will be Jamie Wilkie-Brain (So that I don't have any issues with ppl not knowing who I am) but legally I'm going Jamie Brain.

In general - are any of you changing your name? Initially I wasn't, and hubby was cool. Now that we're "officially" married, I get the feeling he really wants me to. I like his last name, and it wasn't ever out of the question, moreso for convenience that I wouldn't change it, and I really like my name. It reflects my heritage, and I just like it.
For professional purposes, I would like to stay Jaimee "Smith", but legally be Jaimee "Jones". Has anyone ever thought of making their maiden name a middle name?
So my new name would be Jaimee Anne Smith Jones. For all intents and purposes I would be Jaimee Jones legally, but then Smith is still a part of my name. (PS. I made up middle and last names)
What are your thoughts January ladies? What are you doing?
Your wedding looks beautiful!
I like that your dress was long but short enough to show off your beautiful barefoot sandels!

I too am feeling the post wedding sadness. It feel like so long ago now! And we didn't have great weather or very much time to ourselves, so I'm dying for a Honeymoon! Just trying to convince DH that it is required!
Luckily, I still have our AHR to plan.... and I guess it will be babies after that to keep me busy!
