Silly Question - does anyone know?

Hi Ladies



Yesterday we went to see the registrar and give our notice. While we were there she gave us a little book with vows and other information regarding the ceremony in it.



Anyway, I was thinking last night and it may just be me being a bit daft...do you sign the register in your maiden name or new married name? I didnt want to ask H2B or the registrar yesterday coz I didnt wanna look like an idiot! image

    oh my goodness...thats an extremely valid point!

    I'll ask my married friends and if nobody's answered you by the time I know i'll pass on the information!

    Hello before,

    I have heard this question before and you are meant to sign with your maiden name I've been told.



    I've got the little booklet too, it does make you feel like it's getting close! image

  • Hello



    We had our rehearsal on Monday, and you sign in your maiden name. We have to write our full names, not using our signatures!! The witnesses use their actual signatures image



    Hope this helps!!

    Thanks mcweedon



    Maybe it wasn't such a silly question then!! image



    Having the little book does make it all seem very real and when I read the vows out loud to myself the other day the tears started! I'm going to be an emotional wreck on the day! 10 months today for me ..... image

    I have notice a few weeks ago - didnt get a booklet - just a couple of A4 pages - just 2 different vows to use - have you got more choice then?
