I understand how grating family can be, but honestly? The most you can do is say you’d appreciate it if they respected you and your Fiance enough to stop when asked. That’s pretty much all you can do, without turning this into something it doesn’t have to be.

I wouldn’t turn this into a “confrontation” or anything if your family is normally like this, and it probably was funny. I can’t imagine it being funny forever because, well, they need more funny things in their lives if it is, right? Lol. I’d just address it on more of a blanket statement level – re: the respecting it when you guys request they do or say “that’s enough.” Just point out that since it IS going to be your new last name, you don’t want to associate it all the time with the things they say to be funny.

@Ivy81: 1. I so would serve the cheese at the reception. Like saying, “Yeah, we get it, not that funny.” :p

2. I do definitely think you should set some ground rules. Like I said earlier, just address the respecting when you guys ask them to stop. To me, it sets the ground rules for later on things, like kids or how you run your household, things like that. It’s important that they get that.
