IN less than six months I will be a married woman. If all goes well.

My fiance and I, who celebrated our three-year anniversary yesterday, will marry in Bendigo on October 27.

When I say celebrated, I don’t mean literally because, unfortunately, he was in Ballarat because of work commitments.

We are in the midst of wedding preparations, which have been made somewhat difficult by living 200 kilometres away from where we will be marrying, and that we uprooted our lives to move to Horsham.

I have come to realise I am not your typical bride. Safe to say this is a bridezilla-free zone here.

My matron of honour has been stressing about my lack of organisation – she was married last year and had the entire wedding organised 12 months before the wedding day.

But most aspects are on track now – ceremony and reception venues are booked, bridal party selected, bridesmaid dresses selected, photographer booked and entertainment organised.

I have purchased my dress from a bridal shop in Melbourne. The most important part, of course.

The fact it is from a Melbourne shop has raised some concerns though because two Melbourne bridal boutiques have gone bust in the past two months.

There is a still a long list of things to organise. Bridal party cars at the top of the list.

It’s amazing how much you actually have to organise for a wedding.

You don’t realise how much is required to make the day happen until you are actually in the situation.

I have a laid-back approach because I know it will all come together eventually.

It might be working at a newspaper that has made me not stress – the paper always comes out. And my wedding day will happen.

But there is one thing that I am undecided about – should I change my name?

I most likely will, because it’s important to my fiance.

But I am rather attached to my surname. It’s been with me my whole life, and it is often used as my nickname.

And it’s my byline. It’s who all the readers of my stories identify me to be.

So what do you reckon – should I stick with Henry or make the change to become Lauren Duffy?
