I have a question that I’m sure has come up before for another bride. We got married in March, but we are not going on our honeymoon until May. I will need my passport for my honeymoon. Do I wait to change my name until after the trip so it matches my passport? Someone told me that you can bring a copy of your marriage certificate and show that with the old passport name? Just curious what is easiest. Anyone been through this?
Thanks for the help!!!

I would definitely wait, no reason to risk it.

I would wait! Do you have your marriage certificate back yet even?

Wait to change your name, and make sure that your maiden name (to match your passport) is on your tickets. That’s definitely easier.

Who ever told you about bringing the marriage license was incorrect. Don’t change it until after. Everything has to have the correct last name on it. Your passport, drivers license, and airline ticket.

DEFINITELY wait until afterwards. You need a new passport with your new name. Who ever told you that about the marriage cert has probably not traveled internationally since 9/11 – at least not from the US.

Thank you all! We just got our marriage certificate in the mail. I’m going to wait until after the trip and not stress over it beforehand. Thanks for the advice!
