Read This Before You Get Married

I might have mentioned it before, but I'm planning on getting married this summer. To that end, I've been browsing the web, looking for stories about wedding related disasters, hoping to learn from the mistakes of others. Just this evening I found a bit of advice that had not occurred to me - think about what your new name will be, especially if you are considering whether or not to hyphenate. And here's why.

those are great nethie. have you ever looked at a site called etiquette hell? they have all kinds of wedding horror stories, other stuff too mostly about rude people and such. its one of those sites where you start reading and when you next look up hours have passed. very funny!

So that's going to be Nethie Fairly-Common?

Just a suggestion: Don't spend a bag-full of money on wedding photos. Better to buy a batch of cheap digital camera and give them to the guests and let them do their own thing. You'll get some good ones and some bad ones but, most importantly you'll get a lot of fun out of it, you'll include your guests in the ceremony, and your scrap-book will be filled with laughter and real-live memories.

If you want a wedding portrait for the wall then go to a pro and have one done, of course.

My hopes and dreams have been dashed...

that idea is great expat, i've seen it done with great results. the only time i've heard of a problem at all was when a friend set out dispoable cameras on the tables and kids got hold of several. so just keep the little monsters away from the cameras and you're set.
dumbfounded, no wonder you're so smart, just learning to spell your name as a child expanded your mind!
i wondered what would happen when the next generation got married. two hyphenated name people getting hitched, and especially, having children. pretentiousness squared.

Nooooo, Patty, let the kids run wild with the camera! Back in the film camera days I'd agree but pixels are cheap and kids have a vision all their own.

Oh if only I were half as well loved as you are patty! 😊

I was thinking of setting my webcam up for the duration of the honeymoon, and charging for people to watch, in order to pay for the wedding. :lol:
