…My name has always been really difficult to pronounce. As I won’t see the Officiant before walking down the aisle I wanted to leave it to Fiance to relay the info to the Officiant. Only problem is, 90% of people, even when they’re told how to say it, just can’t pronounce it and it comes out sounding odd….any suggestions on how to fix this / anyone had a similar problem? Pronounced wrong, my name can sound horrible so I really don’t want to be embarrassed on the day :/

I have a long 3 syllable name with hindu roots… I think i’m the only one with the name in the whole world – only I pop up in a google search.
I’ve had this issue my entire life. What I started doing since high school is literally given people lessons in how to say my name.
1st syllable ________ – rhymes with ___________
2nd syllable ___________ – rhymes with ___________
3rd syllable pronounced like __________
When i graduated the person who called out names phoned me to find out how to pronounce my name – I was super appreciative.
I’d call your offiant as well as pop him an email before the day just to make sure he”ll get it right.

They told us that we don’t get to meet with them until the day of the wedding…..I could try ringing closer to the time i guess….thanks for the suggestion.
I don’t think my name is that hard to say, I just don’t get why so many people struggle!
