Hey there future brides, it's your friendly wedding planner here! Today, I'm here to talk about one of the biggest decisions you'll make in your wedding planning journey: whether or not to take your partner's last name.
For some couples, this is an easy decision - but for others, it's not so simple. After all, it's not just a name change; it's a symbolic gesture that signifies a bond between two people. For those of you who decide not to take your partner's last name, you have plenty of options! You can keep your last name, hyphenate, or create a completely new surname that combines
both yours and your partner's.
It's a great way to show that you are a unit without changing your identity. Plus, it can be a lot of fun! You can get creative with your new name and make it as unique as you are.
No matter what you decide, it's important to remember that this is your decision, and you should never feel pressured to take your partner's last name. It's a personal choice, and you should never feel like you need to do it just because it's the “traditional” thing. So, if you're a bride who is considering not taking your partner's last name, don't worry - you're not alone! There are plenty of other brides out there who have chosen the same path. You have plenty of options, so take your time and make the decision that's right for you. Happy wedding planning!
