    I’m taking his name personally, but I’m already registered professionally with my current last name, so I’m keeping that. So, I get to be Mrs. ____, and also get to hold onto a bit of my past in my professional life.

    Next time around I’ll be changing it completely.

    The first time I kept my name and just had his socially… it became really confusing and I ended up needing to get ID with both names and it was just annoying. I was too stubborn to change my name fully because I didn’t like his and didn’t like his family (I know, immature). So next time I will be taking his 100%

    We’re both hyphenating… Mr. and Mrs. Mylastname-Hislastname <3<3
    About 2 weeks ago Things Remembered was having a free giveaway where if you came into their store and showed them your facebook paged saying you were engaged they would give you a free engraved keychain with your new last name.  Fiance and I both got one made.

    It’s so fun seeing our new last name…even though it’s not ours quite yet!!

    I’m keeping my last name professionally, but going to go by his socially. I have my degrees under my last name, and have papers published, so it would be career suicide to change my name at this point.
