Irish brides won't be breaking with tradition anytime soon.
A new survey shows that the majority of Irish brides will take their husband's name after they wed.
The findings, conducted by One4All gift cards, shows that a whopping 57% of women will adopt their husband's surname, which comes weeks after the issue was hotly debated by celebrity and 'normal' brides alike.
Just 23% of women will keep their surname after they wed and just 2% would follow in the footnotes of Dawn O'Porter and merge their maiden last name with their husband's.
10% of women said they would choose a double barrel option.
The survey enquired about wedding etiquette across the board with an incredible 90% of Irish couples saying they wouldn't create a hashtag for their big day and one in four would consider a social media ban altogether.
