I don’t blame you for being mad. What part of “That’s not my name” does he not understand?

I do believe you’re allowed to go a TINY bit bridezilla and insist that he says your actual name, here. 🙂

Yep, I think if you’re changing your name and you announce it as mr and mrs hislastname at the wedding, it’s only going to make it harder to make it clear that you’re not taking his name in the future.  I think you need to make a stand on this one.

His two seconds of “fun” announcing you will lead to months of headaches for you down the road.

Good luck!

I agree with the PPs. This will be one extra chance for you two to show that you’re keeping your own name, and I’d let him know (sternly, and rightly!) that you’re going to be announced as as Mr.XY and Mrs./Ms.XX. And that is that! Not bridezilla-y at all, it’s what you want.

I would be tempted to have him follow the announcements with the Ting Ting’s “That’s Not My Name.” 🙂

Glad he’s seen the light!
