Yay Calgary!

I remember seeing your photo slide show awhile ago, it stuck out to me since I noticed you were from Alberta!  Your pictures were so pretty!

Thanks for this!  I am worried mostly about my passport – UGH.  I will travel on our honeymoon immediately after the wedding under my maiden name (which will be using a new passport because my current one expires next October and you can’t travel easily within six months of the expiry date!) and then when I get back have to get ANOTHER new passport.  I am hoping I can do this quickly and efficiently because I may need my passport to fly to Vegas for my cousin’s wedding in September….and that is not a lot of time!  I will probably have a month (or less) to make it happen.

I’m a bit worried too, if I am changing my name, does that mean I cannot immediately fly out after the wedding?

@weddingallie: You should wait until after you come back from your trip to change your name.  When booking flights etc. you should book in your maiden name.  Keep your passport and everything else as is until you get back, then start changing your name!

I have been looking for a list like this! It looks pretty time consuming and really not looking forward to it!

This was far back in the depths of pages (lol) and I knew I had seen it ages ago, so bumping up if it can be of any help to any recently married Canadian bees like myself 🙂
