I've decided to hyphenate my last name

Recommended Posts

I am the last "D" in my family. I spoke with my FI about keeping my last name and hyphenating it. He was against it at first, but i felt strongly about this. We talked it out and he agreed. So here is my question,

 

When the minister announces us right after the wedding, how should i ask him to phrase it. I want my family and friends to know my full name, but i don't want to humiliate my FI. I"m having a DW in Jamaica.

 

Help!!

you really could do it any way you want - but if you want to be announced as your legal names you could have him say something like ...

 

"... the new Mr. ____ and Mrs. _____-_____!"

 

or I guess you could skip the name thing - and just say "husband and wife!"

He can't say introducing Mr. Bob and Mary Downs - Johnson.....cause my FI will have a heart attach if his name is attached to mine.......sort of like being Mr. Oprah Winfrey.

 

I really would like to hear my full name announced properly, but i'm not really sure of how to handle this situation.

Or how about just "Introducing Bob and Mary Johnson"? Everyone already knows your maiden name, you can attach it later but for the ceremony it doesn't need to be said.

No, see that's the thing. I WANT my full name to be said. My family doesn't know that I want to keep my name, so this will be a surprise for them also........especially my dad! I think I will use akh's suggestion. Thanks ladies!!

i wanted to keep my maiden name in some fashion as well - i just moved it to a 2nd middle name - so now i have 2 middle names. not sure if that would work for you. it's all a personal preference!

    • 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?
