So this is totally not wedding related at all, but I am super excited, and yet, totally lost as well.
I have to get my graduation paperwork done so that I can walk and “graduate” in May. Now I won’t actually graduate until after our wedding because I have a couple things I have to finish over the summer.
So my question is, What name should I put on my Diploma???? I can basically put whatever I want and I am torn between my options. I hate when they give you so much freedom with this stuff!
Here are the options:
1) Full first name–full middle name–maiden name
2) Full first name–full middle name–married name
3) Shortened first name– middle initial– maiden name
4) Shortened first name–middle initial– married name
5) Some other combo (please explain)
Thanks guys, I really hate making these decsions without input!

I am graduating before I get married and will have my first name – middle name – maiden last name on my diploma.
In your case, I would consider doing the married last name as your wedding date is so close.. what do you want to have on the diploma?? I voted 1!

I voted for option 1 because you completed most of your college degree with your maiden name. I really have no other reason besides that lol!

I think it depends on what you’re going to do after you’re married. Are you taking his name, keeping your name, keeping your maiden & last…
Whatever you’re going to change your name to is what I think the name on your diploma should say. 🙂

I am going to take his name after we are married. I just dont know becuase it is all so close. I “graduate” may 22, get married June 5 and start my last class on June 7. so technically I will be married when I finish.
I think I am torn because I have had my current name thoughout my entire school life, but I have no regrets changing it, so do I keep it the same as what is in all my records or change it.
Does it even really matter??

I voted to put your new last name on your degree because that will be your name at the time that you finish your degree. If you were finishing way before you got married then I would probably say to put your maiden name on there. Either way, I think that it is totally your preference. 🙂

- Wedding: June 2010 - Ceremony - First United Methodist Church; Reception - My parents' house!
I say full first, full middle, and married since you’ll be graduating after you get married. 🙂

I would do Frist Name, Maiden Name (instead of middle name), Married Name
