Not sure about changing your name after your wedding? MMW 68

Struggling with the idea of changing your name after your wedding? Rest assured, you are not alone. And it's ok.

Some people look forward to it. Some are more cautious. Even though you are marrying the love of your life, taking a new name can be a big decision. The paperwork is time-consuming process, so you should feel comfortable and happy with your choice. It's not for everyone, and it's fine.

Today Yvette shares her advice about changing your name:

  •  Whether changing your name after your wedding means you lose your identity

  •  Alternatives to taking your spouse's name after your wedding

  •  Why you should include your partner in the decision about changing your name

  •  And if you decide to change your name after your marriage, the ideal time to do it

 Your wedding planning and lead up to your big day should be as relaxing and stress-free as possible. Spending days being exhausted about a name change is no fun. We want to help you to make your decision so you can focus on the fun stuff.
