There was just a poll about this, I’ll see if I can find it. I think it is very cool! I wanted  my husband to take my last as part of his middle, but got shot down. ๐Ÿ™ I think you announce with his name first. “Mr and Mrs HisNAME and HerName LastName.”

I think the way that you wrote it out above is just great!

I think it’s really cool.  We both took each other’s last names as second middle names… not exactly the same, but I’m so happy that we both have each other’s names!

I love this! I think your name should be announced first and it sounds great. I wish I could get my fiance to use my name, but he’s pretty attached to his. ๐Ÿ™‚

I would LOVE if my Fiance took my name as a last, but he is taking it as a middle name for himself, which is the next best thing for me ๐Ÿ™‚ 

And i think the way you wrote it works!  No need to overthink it.

That’s fantastic! I think you can announce in what ever order you want, sometimes one name sounds better first depending on what they are.

I like the way you wrote it too. Nice! My fiance has said he wants to combine our names, so we might end up being Mr. and Mrs. Jack and Jane MyLastName HisLastName.

I LOVE that your FH is doing this!

I love my last name.  I would hate to give it up for any reason.


Ask your wedding officiant for advice.  If she/he is not religious, she has dealt with this many, many, many times.

If religious, then phone a couple of officiants of gay weddings in gay-marriage-legal states.  They deal with this constantly!!!


Congrats to you for finding such a great guy!

I agree, what a sweet fiance you have. ๐Ÿ™‚

My fiance offered to do that for me because I’m the last in our family name line, but  I just adore his name and wouldn’t want him to give it up. I’m taking his last name, and my last name will be my middle name.
