I did this. We got married in the US and I changed my name the day I returned from my honeymoon. Then I had my official name change logged in the US for social security as well as my marriage liscence and went to the nearest consulate. I needed to make an appointment so I would suggest you check online before showing up. It was just like a normal passport renewal but with a name change form. I could have even mailed it in but went in person in order to speed up the process.

Definitely check with your nearest consulate/embassy and ask what they need to see and whether you need an appointment.  I was in the reversed situation; German citizen, married and living in the US.  I needed to fill out a name-change petition, have it notarized, and bring my and my husband’s passports, as well as the marriage certificate to make the name change valid in Germany.
