Trying to write your new last name

Recommended Posts

OMG so I was just practicing my new last new in my signature it felt so frigging weird. I was trying to do it fast like how I do my signature now and I kept making mistakes. This is going to take some time, to get used to or when I go to sign my name at the bank their going to think it's not me because of the mistakes and super long pause when I get to the part with the last name. Any one else tried to write your new name it is so weird but his last name is so much better then mine LOL

Every time I try to type my new last name, I get about three letters in before I realize that I automatically just type my maiden name. I haven't been able to change my name without a translation of our marriage cert, so I still have time to get used to writing it.

My maiden name is SMITH...... I have ALWAYS wanted to get rid of it!!! Well over the last year of our engagement I think I must have embraced my generic last name and have become super attached to it!!!! I like how it sounds better than FIs name and how it flows with my first (probably because I am used to it).

 

I am lucky because FIs last name also starts with S so I don't have to come up with a new way to flow my signature just have to change the last part of the letters lol.... his is so loopy I always add extra letters or drop something along the way!!!!!!

 

Anyone having trouble with the idea of being called MRS. FI's last name???  Every time I hear it I think of my MIL and just can't get my head around being called that.  I know some brides love the idea of becoming MRS______ I am not sure I like it so much lol

I am not looking forward to my new last name for several reasons:

1. It's silly :) I will be Mrs. Brain next year, but if it's good enough for my FI and our future children, it's good enough for me.

2. My maiden name is a well recognized family name in my area, which has benefited me over the years.

3. I will have to be Wilkie-Brain about a year so that peers and colleagues get used to the new name.

 

So iN light of the above...I've already established myself as the future Mrs. "B" :)

I'm sorry....I giggled a little bit when I read your new last name.....but you gotta take the good with the bad. My current last name is Hogan and I got teased a LOT growing up...and still a little to this day.  i.e are you related to Hulk Hogan...are you crocodile Dun dee's daughter (his real name was Paul Hogan). Along with Hogan's Heroes and the Hogan Family.  I am changing my last name to Johnson and people have already renamed me CJ.... : (.  I HATE that and we are going to the Johnson and Johnson (like the lotion).  But I love him and making the change is worth it to be his Mrs, for the rest of my life!

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.

I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
