Wedding Reception Q&As

Answers to your questions about toasting, timing, and traditional reception rites and rituals.

Q: I will be keeping my maiden name. Its okay if the minister pronounces us "husband and wife," but how can the master of ceremonies at the reception avoid saying "Mr. and Mrs."? 

A: It's easier than you might think. Instruct your master of ceremonies to say, "I would like to present, in their first appearance as husband and wife, Jane Doe and John Smith." It will make the point that although you are married, you are retaining your name.
