Before I got engaged, changing my last name wasn’t something I thought a lot about. I just assumed I’d take Conor’s last name and even ordered a makeup bag, pajamas, and a tote bag monogrammed with DMS. The whole monogram thing was fun while we were engaged. Then I got married.

Glitter and sparkles aren’t my thing and I’m generally a mess in high heels, so one of the most annoying wedding related tasks has been finding a proper wedding shoe. Everything’s just so ugly (in my very honest and probably overly-strong opinion) and I don’t want to spend money on …
