- Wedding: April 2011
I’m not even sure what board to post this on; but i figured i’d start with my NYC brides.
Darling Husband & I (almost typed FH LOL!) received some checks that had BOTH our names on the check under his last name. The thing is i haven’t changed my name yet; and wasn’t still sure what i was going to do about it. Figured I’d wait a little while to get more comfortable with the idea.
We went to the bank to deposit the checks; but they can’t deposit the checks that have my first name and his last name. What did other people do that had similar situations??
I feel awkward going to people and saying “oh do you mind giving me another check with just my name etc” But i don’t want to hold on to someones check for 3 months either! while we figure the name situation out.
What did everyone else do?? Are there any banks that will let us open an account and deposit the checks if we show our marriage license?
