    I can’t change mine until I get back from my honeymoon on the 29th, but I have started practicing signing my name. It’s only one letter shorter than my maiden name, but the letters flow much more nicely. Love it 🙂

    Most def.  I practice signing my future last name all the time.  I’ve been doing it for awhile…even before I was engaged.  Yes, I’m a total middle schooler.  Don’t judge 😉  Of course, my name won’t change officially until all the paperwork is filled out when we come back from our honeymoon in October, lol.  So I have awhile left with my old name.

    @SuperDuperBrit:  Samesies.

    I practiced all over the place. But damn if I wasn’t allllll thrown off when immediately after the ceremony, I had to sign a few documents with my NEW name, and it looks like a 4 year old signed it for me. Just wasn’t prepared to start signing it for real!

    Congrats! I changed mine this week too! I changed it at the Social Security office mid-June and then had to make an appointment at the DMV, which wasn’t until yesterday, so I had to wait awhile. I went straight from the DMV to the bank and the only other thing I still need to do as of now is call my car insurance company. I’m not in too big of a rush though since I kept my maiden name as my middle name.

    I had to! I sign my name a lot for my job. I couldn’t have it looking clunky, crusty for 2 months. I like my new signature more than my old one I think!

    My maiden name is so flowy and sounds really nice with my first name and my future name is so clunky and not as pretty.  So I have been practicing writing it and saying and it still doesn’t feel or sound right, but I have plenty of time to keep practicing 🙂  Hopefully I will be used to it by 25 year anniversary lol
