I'm keeping my name. I like my last name, in large part due to my close relationship with my dad's side. I am a teacher and am called by my last name all the time, so it has to be something that I am comfortable with. FI's last name is weird... it's two words stuck together, like Wigglebottom. I can't forsee being called it all day, every day. I did try to convince him to change his to mine, but he wasn't on board with it.
The one issue I had was having a different last name from any kids we may have, but realistically, about half of the kids that I teach have different last names than their mothers- no big deal. I've even seen siblings (often twins, oddly) that have different last names, one mom's and one dad's.
Anniversary dance- that's better than what my FI has been calling it- The Elimination Dance.
We sent out our invites on Tuesday. We had a few texts with pics of the invites from excited friends, but the best is two mailed response cards from an auntie and uncle and a couple who are friends. We officially have 4 guests!
Thank you everyone for the help! I feel much better about it now
