It seems that at most weddings, it's still fairly common for the couple to be introduced using both the groom's first and last name. But, while preparing for our wedding, I went back and forth about whether this was OK with me, or whether I'd prefer that my own first name be used.
In the end, it didn't matter during the ceremony, since the priest flaked out and introduced us as simply "the newest couple in the United States of America." Oh well. At least it gave everyone a good laugh!
But how did we ultimately decide to be introduced at the beginning of the reception? Have a look!
The way I see it, though I may have taken Stephen's last name, I definitely still have my own first name, and I'm more than happy to use it!
How do you plan to be introduced during your wedding?
