For the bride that decides to take on her husband’s last name, the process can be quite intimidating! But, if you have the right information and a to-do list, the process will be easier, I promise!
I had to change my name and the most time-consuming part of the process was a visit to the social security office. After that was done, all else could be handled through the mail.
Here is a checklist of items that need to be taken care of and you can do this after your honeymoon. I recommend after you get back from the glorious get-away because you can just use your current passport with your maiden name instead of worrying about the name-change details while planning your wedding.
I also have a name change kit which is so helpful and includes all the forms needed so if you need one, leave a comment with your contact info.
* Social Security Card – always start with this one first!
* Drivers License
* All credit reporting agencies
* Doctor/Dental records
* Bank/Credit cards and accounts

Happy name changing!
