It’s going to depend on how long it takes the gov’t agency you got it from to process it. You have to send them the whole thing. Until it’s been processed and you get a certified copy back, you can’t start changing your name.
Edited to add: mine came back fairly quickly. I got married on a Monday evening, and I think I got my certified marriage certificate in the mail that Wednesday. It was crazy. I don’t even know how it got from the officiant to the clerk of the court’s office that fast unless my officiant was even more awesome than I thought she was and drove the thing over to the county where I live.

Depends on where you got married and where you live. Ours arrived within 2 weeks (it was in our mailbox when we got back from the honeymoon).
