It’s time for another Real Name Change Story! We can’t wait to share how Jasmine met the love of her life, planned an Arabian Nights themed wedding, and made a switch to the new name that makes her smile every time she hears it.
My husband and I met over 7 years ago through friends, and it definitely felt like fate. We were both the youngest of four children and loved all of the same things. All we wanted to do was spend with each other. As the years went on our bond grew stronger and we knew this was going to be a forever kind of love. On our 6th year together Steven proposed on a Carnival cruise ship to Cozumel, Mexico during a photo shoot. Our entire relationship so far has felt like a fairytale, and the wedding was no different. A year after being engaged we planned an intimate wedding with all of our family and closest friends at Casa Bella Estate in Odessa, Florida. The theme was Arabian Nights and the colors were teal, gold and plum. It was the perfect wedding to begin our happily ever after.
It was always decided that I would take my husband’s name. It was something we talked about way before we even got engaged. I was attached to my last name, but not in a way that I couldn’t let go. I knew the process would be long and could be frustrating but I was willing to sacrifice.
The best part of changing my last name is forever being linked to not only my amazing husband, but his amazing family. I’m proud to have the Sosa name and hopefully help carry on the name for years to come when we have children. It always makes me smile when my co-workers or friends call me “Mrs. Sosa.”
The hardest part of changing my name was honestly just figuring out what the first step was going to be. I did a lot of research and found the MissNowMrs website. MissNowMrs helped tremendously in helping me change my name. I’m the kind of person who likes to get things quickly resolved, and I was able to get all of my forms and pre fill them out which made the process so much faster. I’m so glad I did the research and decided to use MissNowMrs. It was such an affordable and efficient way to change my name.
My best advice to newlyweds is always keep things fresh. It is easy to fall into a normal routine but every once in a while you have to be spontaneous and have fun with your spouse! I would also recommend using MissNowMrs after the wedding and getting the process started. You will be so happy to get that one post-wedding task complete!
