Do I use both of our last names or do I use his last name only when addressing the banquet room at our wedding reception?
Tradition would have you take his last name upon entering the banquet room at your wedding reception - i.e. For the first time in public, please welcome Mr. & Mrs. John Smith.
But today traditional wedding reception protocol is not always what works for you. I have a lot of clients that do not give up their maiden name or they want to incorporate both of their first names in their first entrance.
However you choose to have it said, you really cannot go wrong today. Just have fun with it and really enjoy the moment because it goes by so quickly!
