To be getting married in 1.5 hours and still haven't picked a name
UndecidedWomble · 24/07/2015 09:33
I will be getting married this morning. Still haven't decided if I should be:
Mrs Womble (keep my maiden)
Something completely new ......
Does it really matter if I haven't chosen yet?

Hope you have a great day and very happy married life
I am MrsDHsName for dentists/drs/other appointments, am MrsDouble-Barrelled in my passport (so I share a name with my DCs) and DrMaidenname at work.
I never had to formally decide what my name was to be.

YANBU - I only decided 2 days after my wedding in May that I was going to take my husband's name, and I still have a lot of the name change process to go through. I can't change my passport until after Christmas because my husband already booked our flights back to Ireland in my maiden name.
I'm not changing at work because I work in IT and I know how many things are liable to break if I do!

Happy Wedding Day!
You don't have to decide today, just enjoy the day and see how you feel. There's no deadline for changing or keeping your name! Having said that, it would be a good idea to decide before you send out thank you cards, so you can include your new name (eg print your names and address in the card and/or on the envelope). That way people will know what to call you!
And remember, you could be "Ms" instead of "Mrs" (that's what I did, I'm "Ms Myname Hisname).
Tbh "Mrs Maidenname" could be your father's wife, so I think that's a bit weird, but that could just be me!
