Some things. My friend calls us the “his last name” all the time and I don’t mind. But when I wanted a mug with an initial, I picked my first name instead of his last since its not mine yet.


But we’re doing a first look and I’m not superstitious about that.

@Chelwilly:  That would make me nervous… I’d probably tape my maiden name over it (where possible) for the time being! LOL.

I am honestly not worried about those superstitions at all. We will be spending the night together the night before the wedding, we will probably have breakfast and lunch together too! First look we aren’t decided on yet but would have no problems with. I’m not changing my name so not affected by that.

I guess we are to a degree superstitious over pre wedding stuff – I had pictures taken of me in my dress over the weekend taken with his camera and it was an ordeal because we needed to burn them onto a disc using his laptop and we were both all “I’m not looking!”  and “I know you’re not going to look”! LOL

He’s from the South, and there’s a lot of superstition surrounding wedding stuff…so there’s a few things. I’m pretty traditional as well. 

We’re not getting married in 2013, partially because it’s ’13…seems silly, but hey. No first look, he wants zero involvement in the dress shopping, etc etc.

I’m not, but that’s super weird your work just did that without asking for their own convenience. It’s not your name yet.

The only thing I was superstitious about was not using any wedding gifts until after the wedding! (because if the wedding gets called off you have to return all gifts, but you can’t return something you used, so by using it you’re basically GUARANTEEING that your wedding will be called off and you’ll be in a giant pickle with your unreturnable-but-need-to-be-returned gifts). DH was so mad at me — we had this beautiful set of pots and pans, all nonstick and thick metal with rubberized handles and lids … and I wouldn’t even open the box for months. We had to keep using our crappy ones!!

@Chelwilly:  My name is already changed too. I am not superstituous. A marriage will either work, or it won’t. It doesn’t matter if you “wear blue” or “sleep separately the night before.” I’d rather focus on tangibles like trust, communication, and intimacy.

I wouldn’t say I’m superstitious. I don’t believe we will have bad luck or anything if any of these things happen but:

I want the first time he sees me on our wedding day to be when I am walking down the aisle, and I don’t want him to see my dress before the big day.
