While getting organized for our Wedding, I purchased an Initial Charm from Persona… and I incorporated that into my post Wedding “Honeymoon” look.

I haven’t done anything else, altho I have “pinned” some Initial ideas on Pinterest that I’m thinking I might use when we are redecorating this Winter… be it a wreath for our Front Door or something cute for our Foyer Display.

Hope this helps,

PS… Lol I get the whole difficulty in taking on a Surname.  I kept my Maiden name the first time round… so I have had the same name for over 50 years… talk about tough to change.  BUT at the same time, this time round I really wanted to do something drastically different from my first marriage (a theme that I’ve maintained all thru the Wedding Plans… different type of Rings, Dress, Ceremony, Honeymoon etc).

And for the record, as an Etiquette Snob… lol the format you’ve chosen FirstName MaidenName MarriedSurname is the most “traditional” one… so very much a tried & true classic.  It is also the one that I adopted (made the conscious choice to drop the lifelong middle name that I wasn’t that jazzed about)

@MrsSkeletonKey:  @This Time Round:  I wasn’t sure what to do about my various names, so I kept ALL THE NAMES!  So now I’m Lauren Elizabeth Maidenname Lastname…  I like Elizabeth too much to get rid of, and it felt weird to totally dump the maiden name.  But socially I’m just going by Lauren Lastname.  (Which is very strange for sure – I’m 31 and a pretty independent person, so it’s weird to suddenly have a new name.  But in the end I wanted our new little family to have one name Smile)

My parents gave us an awesome Pendleton wool blanket with our new couple’s monogram as a wedding gift, so that’s my cool new last name gift.

I changed, but to a hyphenated name.  I’m now First Hisname-Myname, but so is he.  Since his name is first, it typically gets shortened to just his name (at work, we refer to each other by last name typically).  I don’t really mind.  Its funny, because people then assume that myname is his name, so we get mail all the time addressed to the Myname family…

TO @MrsSkeletonKey:  obviously I misread your post.

Utmost Traditional would be to go from FirstName MiddleName Surname (Jane Kat Doe) to FirstName MaidenName MarriedSurname

So… Jane Doe Jones… vs Jane Kat Doe Jones  OR Jane Kat Jones

Although in this day & age thankfully ALL ARE ACCEPTABLE… it really is just a matter of personal choice / preference.

TO @lolot:  awesome gift.  Cool parents !!

Monograms can be fun… I’ve only experimented with all the variations of my NEW “Married one” on paper… still haven’t decided on what I want to have it incorporated onto.

@MrsSkeletonKey:  It was actually his idea, too.  Overall, its been great.  Almost 2 years, and we’ve had a few snarky comments, but mostly people are really supportive and think its pretty cool.

@MrsSkeletonKey:  So cute! I love that idea! I was also a little wistful when it came to losing my maiden name, but I do love sharing a last name with my husband now. 🙂

@MrsSkeletonKey:  Now that I changed my name, my husband and I actually have the exact same first, middle, and last initials. I really need to find a cute way of celebrating that. 🙂
