I haven’t decided yet if I will be changing my last name and doubt I will have committed one way or the other by the wedding. Any ideas on how the DJ should announce us at the reception? I’ve only ever heard “I’m proud to announce for the first time- Mr. and Mrs. samelastname” so I’m not sure what to have her say instead.

How about something along the lines of ‘Please welcome the newlyweds.. *your first name* and *his first name*”
If I heard that announced at a wedding I wouldn’t think anything of it, and it still leaves you open to change it or not change it!

@Miss_E_xx: ;@RockStar33: That sounds good, thanks! I’m not really sure why I didn’t think of that. Hours of making tissue pomanders has clearly melted my brain a little.

I’m in the same boat and we’re either going to skip the announcement all together or just go with first names.
