Tuesday: Trends/Traditions/Backgrounds - Pros and Cons of Name Change

Posted on 23 July, 2013 at 4:15

The leap into marriage is a game-changer, but should it also be a

name-changer? It's a question that may be harder than ever for a bride to answer. Essence

of Events, LLC is breaking down the Pros and Cons for you to try to make this tough

decision a little easier for you.

you for a small fee, there are still lots of other items (like your business cards, magazine

subscriptions, or personal email address) that may bear your maiden name and need


His last name sounds awful with your first. You couldn't help falling in love with someone

whose last name rhymes terribly with your first. But you can stop others from repeating

that tongue-twister, by retaining your maiden name.
