Written on invitations, I don’t mind.  However, fiance wants to be announed into the reception as Mr. & Mrs. Fiance’s Name and I am not really thrilled about that.  =/  He’s pretty insistent though, so I will probably just let it go so he can be happy.  Because really, how often will I be called Mrs. Brad Pitt in everyday life?

I hate it too!!  I was working on my wedding invitations and without thinking I asked my mom if they spelled her name right. Ooooh wait…my mom’s name won’t even be on the invitation because her identity is subsumed by my fathers. I’m of half a mind to write “Mrs and Mr Mom Name.” It is also the one thing I dread about changing my name…

We actually eliminated honorifics for most younger married couples on our invite list because this bothered me SO MUCH. I wasn’t going to refer to any of my friends as “Mrs. John Smith” and only did it for others under duress.

Yeah I agree. Mr and Mrs John Smith are total douche bags. I hate them too.

I’m fine with Mr. & Mrs. Lastname or Lucky and Fiance Lastname, but I have to admit being called Mrs. Fiance Lastname dosn’t sound too great to me. Like everything I am before marriage doesn’t matter anymore.

For about a month, I was contemplating not taking FI’s last name or both of us taking a new last name (his middle name is both a family name and would work for a last name) but I do know how much of a traditionalist he is. If I had more than a BS under my belt or had made a name for myself buisness-wise, I would probably try harder. But the thought of being Mrs. Lastname now brings a smile to my face 🙂

Unless it’s his grandparents calling me that, I’m not sure I’d even answer to Mrs. Fiance Lastname. And I’ll fight him on what we’re announced as at the reception
