I changed Facebook right away! Then Social Security, Driver’s License, Voting. I wouldn’t change your name at your place of employment until you change it with the bank and on your accounts, so your paychecks correspond πŸ™‚

Here’s what I have on my list so far:

Social Security Card

Drivers License

Voting Registration

Bank accounts / debit card / checks


Credit Cards

Cell Phone

Car Loan

Car Registration

Car insurance

Student Loans

Doctors/ Dentists

Pharmacy /Prescriptions

Health Insurance


Online accounts




I don’t currently own a home but if you do, add on Mortgage, Utilities, Insurance

I did Facebook before I legally changed it, I did it before the honeymoon and I waited until after that to change it legally for passport/traveling purposes.

I did SS first, and then you have to wait a day before going to the DMV (at least I did) because it needs to go through their system first. Then I changed everything else.

I don’t see that changing facebook would have any ramifications, and I already have a new gmail account ready for my new last name (I’m getting married in August). I don’t think changing your work e-mail would really affect your receiving your paycheck, though my place of work requires a copy of the marriage certificate before they’ll change any of my info.

i wish that you could change driver’s license BEFORE the wedding. i am kinda disappointed that i won’t be flashing my ID with the new last name when i buy a drink on my honeymoon or something.

So I keep wondering…my grandmother is letting us use a week of her time share for our honeymoon, and my mom mentioned that she booked it in my married name…is it going to be an issue that all my ID and such will still have my maiden name on it? Fiance will obviously be there and it will match his last name, just not sure if they will give me a hard time?
