For those of you who aren’t changing your last name, how did they (or will they) announce you at the conclusion of the ceremony? I.e. “… for the first time, Mr. and Mrs. (OH NO THAT DOESN’T WORK FOR US).”

At the end of the ceremony it was something like , “and now, introduced for the first time as a married couple, Holly and Andy” or “the newlyweds Holly and Andy”. And during the reception we used our last names because I wanted people to know that I kept mine!

agree with hollyberry4. We had the officiant use just our first names.

Amanda and Michael Last Name, while I dont want to be referred to as Mrs. Michael Lastname, if I do decide to take his name, I want people to know, and if I decide to keep my name or hyphenate it, we will most likely just use our first names.

A little late to the party on this, but I’m considering getting those very Pinterest-y “Mr.” and “Mrs.” signs for the back of our chairs and have them say “Mr.” and “Ms.” instead. Hehe.

I wasn’t going to change my name for a long time and not I’m thinking of hyphenating, but was always going to say Mr. and Mrs. _____. It shows us as a married couple on our wedding day. Most people take months anyways to actually change there name, so it isn’t many people’s real name at the time, just an expression.

I am a DJ (and now a bride-to-be too!) and in the past I have done it as “Ladies and Gentlemen at this time I’d like to introduce to you for the first time as a married couple Mr. John Doe & Mrs. Jane Smith!” or if the officient already introduced them at the end of the ceremony or they just don’t want it like that, I’ve also said “Ladies and Gentlemen let’s congratulate the newlyweds, Mr. John Doe & Mrs. Jane Smith” or “Mrs. Jane & Mr. John Doe”
