Obtain marriage license

File marriage license

Obtain official copies of marriage certificate

Change name with DMV

Change name with Social Security

Change name on bank accounts and insurance

Change name on real property

Update will/trust

Update insurance beneficiary information

I’m not sure exactly what legal stuff you mean, but for me it was mostly name change stuff. I had to change my name at work, at the bank, student loans, memberships. And then of course the obvious drivers license and social security card.

Also make sure to change your w-4 at work (if you work?) to say that you’re married and that may also change your exemptions. I was on my parents insurance still since I was a student so I had to get that switched over. Cell phone bill, joint bank account, car insurance, that’s all I can think of. Everything really just fell into place.. its surprising how easy it is so change your name! You’re so close, congrats! =]
