- Wedding: September 2015 - Hotel Ballroom
My signature is a glorified squiggle. The only real legible part is my first initial (my Dad has the same style of signature, but modeled after his first initial). I have THOUGHT really hard about changing it, but I don’t think I will. Like I said, it’s mostly a squiggle.
My Mom on the other hand has a very ‘school girlish’ signature. She chose to change her signature when she changed her name (because it is one of those rare legible signatures). She has problems for the first year or so of my parents marriage with the bank and whatnot.
If you do change your signature, follow up with the banks and government to see if there is such a thing as a ‘change of signature’ form or something? You don’t want problems down the road.

i dropped my maiden and took my husband’s last name. when i signed for my new drivers license, i had a blank on how to do cursive (other than my maiden name). my signature is terrible. i thought, well i probably should have practiced. 2 years later, i’ve turned it more into a scribble.

I practiced beforehand. I thought it would be so much weirder than it actually was, but I got used to it fast because I have to sign my name multiple times a day at work.

I was worried about it before the wedding but I couldn’t bring myself to practice it as I was afraid I would bring bad luck to my wedding somehow then after the wedding I forgot all about it till about 8 weeks later when I went in to change my name on my licence and they asked me to sing my new name and I just went blank lol it looks like a child did it but I’m getting better

I didn’t have any trouble getting used to my new signature, but three years later, I STILL find myself using my old initials when I need to initial something on a form.
I miss my maiden name signature though – it started with a Z, and I used an awesome Zorro-like Z in my signature.

mrskitty5: Mine’s fairly legible so I changed it. But it wasn’t that big a change – think Baker to Barker, Smith to Smythe, Turner to Tanner type of change. It’s different but it’s still kind of the same

mrskitty5: I’ve been married a year and I still can’t sign my name. I went from a B initial to a G. Do you know how hard cursive Gs are??

I couldn’t wait to stop signing my maiden name! My signature flows so much nicer with my married name now.

tolkenbee: I’m in the same exact boat! I mean, is it even worth it to change if noone can read it anyway? 😉

kb7: Mine will be a K which isn’t as flowy as my current A! I honestly don’t even know how to do a cursive G anymore, haha.

I practiced mine with about a year to go, it didn’t take long to decide on how to do it. It was easier than my maiden name in fact as I had no letters to play with so had to incorporate my shortened name.

Never thought about this until now! I’m adding my maiden name as a second middle name. LOL just wrote it out on a piece of paper at my desk.. hot mess.
