I haven’t gotten married in Las Vegas but where I got married, you receive the marriage license back and you use that to go to the social security office and the DMV in order to change your name.

It doesn’t cost money to change your name with either of those places, the only place I might have needed to pay was if I changed the title on my home.

No, they won’t give you the paperwork when you get your marriage license. But you can print it out from this website:

Once you get your marriage certificate, you go to your local Social Security Office, then the DMV. Those are the 2 best places to start.

After our wedding our officiant mailed our signed marriage license in and when we received it back I took it to the social security office and changed my name. Then I made an appointment with the DMV to change my name, bringing my marriage license and all other requisite identifications. I’m not sure if that process is different in Las Vegas. All I needed was the original marriage license and whatever other types of ID the separate places required (such as, SS card, birth certificate, proof of residency, etc.) The new SS card cost me nothing but they charged me $25 for the new license. I had to re-take my picture too.

To clarify, when you do change your name you need to check at separate websites what you are required to bring in. 

The DMV requires more types of ID (I brought my SS card, a birth certificate, my vehicle registration, bank statement, as well as marriage license) and the Social office requires an application which you can print offline and fill out to take with you.

PPs are correct, you get a copy of your marriage license and then go to SS and the DMV. There is no easier way.
