It’s a time when even the most laid-back among us might start to set high expectations about a huge ring and a fairytale proposal, or find ourselves obsessing about whether or not an engagement is imminent. Equally, if you're recently engaged, you may feel like your proposal story doesn't measure up! But don't fret, because our tips will help you navigate this tricky time of year!Wedding dilemma: A listener writes, “Please help! I’m changing my surname to my husband’s after we get married, and while I’m trying to own my decision, I can still hear my inner feminist voice (and some of my friends’) saying I’m betraying the sisterhood. Any tips for making the final call and explaining it to those who don’t get why you’ve made the choice to change your name?” Our advice for this listener is to know that whatever decision you make will be the right one.
