I have not used it because I didn’t think it was really worth it. You can find all the forms easily and some places require their specific form to change your name. You won’t be able to change your name until after you are married and have your marriage license in hand.

@BellJarBride:  Do it yourself.  It’s really not that difficult to do on your own.

You need to change your name with Social Security first, then once you receive your new SS card change it with the DMV.  No need to use or pay for a service you don’t need.

@BellJarBride:  I have never heard of this but I am intrigued. I am tagging myself so I can see what replies you get.

I didn’t use it.  I thought changing my name was really simple and didn’t take much effort at all.  A few emails, phone calls, a trip to the DMV, Social Security, and the bank.  After that, it was done.

I used it, but I had an inexpensive groupon for it. I liked it.

I didn’t use it, but I didn’t personally find it to be too difficult to change my name. For example, you start at the SS office, and they make their form available online. Then as beachbride1216:  said, you can go to the DMV, etc. And my bank just needed to see our marriage certificate.

I’m sure some women find it super helpful, but I’m glad I didn’t spend the money on the kit myself because I don’t think it would have helped expedite things for me too much.

Eh, I think it’s a waste. It wasn’t as painful of a process as I thought it might be.

You definitely don’t need it – changing your name is not as difficult or as labor intensive as some people would have you believe. Change your name on your social, then DMV and then send in or bring in those documents along with your marriage certificate to most places and you’re set!
