    Default Keeping maiden name update thread (and wedding photos)!

    I couldn't find my thread from the last OT day, where I was trying to figure out whether to change my name when I got married or to keep it, so started a new one.

    Got married on Thursday, had dreadful weather (severe thunderstorms) but it was a perfect day!! I did decide to keep my maiden name because I felt pretty strongly about it, and I really appreciate the advice of all the COTHers who posted on my thread, PMed me, or e-mailed me to talk to me about it and talk to me about wedding stuff! Everything went as I could have hoped - with one blooper in the service that made me laugh so hard that I almost couldn't stand up: the minister, after marrying us, announced that she was presenting the married couple of Mr. Supershorty and then accidentally said my maid of honor's name, so I handed her my bouquet and pushed her front and center. It was so funny and will definitely be a moment to remember!

    I'm putting a link to photos here.. Facebook claims it will work even for people who do not have a Facebook, but we'll see how well that goes.

    Beautiful! Thanks for sharing! I love weddings: even though mine was two years ago it still seems like I've got wedding-brain. Good thing we have a bunch to go to this year! Congratulations and many happy years together!

    I loved your hair and the sink photo with all the hairpins. Congratulations!

    Did you also just graduate?

    Yes! I graduated on the 17th, drove straight through the night from MN to NY the 19th-20th, got married on the 23rd, and Mr. Supershorty graduated on the 25th. It's been a crazy couple of weeks!

    Thank you so much, everyone!!

    Here is a video of the blooper moment in the ceremony - it's not my video so I don't know how to share it, apologies if it doesn't work

    Double congratulations, pomp and circumstance and we've only just begun!

    Also, in a modern twist, I see your new husband has taken your name.

    LOVE the pictures!! You look absolutely radiant. Love does that.

    I was married during a tropical storm - fortunately, I am crazy about storms LOL! However, it forced us to be married indoors, instead of on the beach - but you know what? I married the love of my life, and it appears that you did as well!

    Have a lovely marriage!!

    Haha only for the purpose of referring to him on the forum!! I do know a few couples where the husband did change his name, though...

    Thanks so much, everyone!

    Well done supershorty! Congratulations!

    Husband can be assured he is now part of the COTH family (bless his heart , I hope that doesn't scare the hell out of him...)

    You both look great, and such a fun time it looks to have been.

    Congrats on your graduation as well!

    Thanks for sharing your photos with all of us. The photos are beautiful. It looks like it was a lovely wedding and that everyone was having fun. Your dress is gorgeous!

    I think you will be happy with your decision to keep your own name. My younger daughter married a year ago and has been happy she decided to keep her name.

    Yesterday I introduced myself to a new boarder, and of course, used my maiden name. Guess I should've been like you!

    Congrats and best wishes on your marriage! You looked absolutely stunning!
