I’m not sure about the American citizen stuff, but to just change your name, as soon as you have the certified wedding license (approximately one week), you can start the process of changing your name with DMV, Social Security, etc.

No, it still works the same way.  When I was married before, I didn’t change my name officially for like 3 years.

Hmm I know in Ontario you have to wait 90 days to file for your marriage certificate.  You MUST have the certificate to change your name – you completed marriage license is not enough.  So it took about 3.5 months to be able to change my name.
