    Well, the idea is yes, but I am 3 months over the wedding, and still haven’t taken care of it.  It’s just such a headache, so much paperwork! But I have the intention…maybe it’ll happen in time for Christmas! πŸ™‚

    My Darling Husband an I are very traditional so I took his, but I have had a difficult time professionally because of it.  I have worked under my last name for 25 years, built a reputation on it,  and that is how everyone knows me.  When I am at a political event or signing up for one, I have to hyphenate my last name or these people are “tks who?”

    @allieluvs21:  I had a post like this.. and at the time I created the post I was for sure hyphenating my name, I would still have my children have his last name but just have my name hyphenated..

    my Fiance like yours is really keen on the idea of me taking his name.. but I don’t know if I can give up my name πŸ™ he’s okay with me hyphenating it!!! but sometimes I think I should either keep mine or just take his.. I don’t know if I want a hyphenated name..

    ahhh I’m so confused πŸ™ & the wedding is so close!!! I’m dreading getting the marriage license haha.. not really I’m excited but I need to make up my damn mind on the name!!!

    I plan to take his last name, but have not done so. He plans to change his last name as well. So, I’m waiting for him to start the process then I’ll start.

    @pandaboo: Your maiden name goes on the marriage license, you don’t need to make a decision before the wedding.

    I did. I always knew that I would take my husbands name but the transition wasn’t easy. It was weird to wake up one day and all of a sudden be someone else. I was CaitMarae (insert last name) for 25 years so having a different last name has been an adjustment. I did entertain the idea of hyphenating it but DH’s family would have had a fit.

    I am in the process — and let me tell you, you better budget some name change money in  your wedding buget! Things are adding up like crazy and its the worst three ring circus I have ever attended. Snail mail, waiting in long lines, and Fees are what you have to look forward to , should you choose πŸ˜‰

    I’m definitely taking my FH’s last name. I can’t wait to have his last name for a multitude of reasons. But even since I was little I couldn’t wait to get rid of my last name because I’ve always hated it. If my last name had more of a family importance to me (like if I had the same last name as my mom, which I don’t), then I could see not wanting to change it. But I really like the traditional taking of the husband’s last name.

    My Fiance is traditional so he wants me to take his name which works out, because I’m traditional too and although I prefer my last night, I still would never keep it. So I’m taking his.
