I’m on a roll with the posts today, but I have all these questions so you’ll have to bear with me 😛
Has anyone used MissNowMrs.com? Any reviews? Would you recommend it? How far before your wedding did you use it?

I have not used it because I didn’t think it was really worth it. You can find all the forms easily and some places require their specific form to change your name. You won’t be able to change your name until after you are married and have your marriage license in hand.

@BellJarBride: Do it yourself. It’s really not that difficult to do on your own.
You need to change your name with Social Security first, then once you receive your new SS card change it with the DMV. No need to use or pay for a service you don’t need.

@BellJarBride: I have never heard of this but I am intrigued. I am tagging myself so I can see what replies you get.

I know the actual name change part won’t come till after, but their website says you can begin the process in advance, I just wasn’t sure how far in advance. That’s good to know though about needing specific forms. I liked the idea of it because it looks like its a one-stop-shop for the multitude of things I’ll need to change my name on.

I didn’t use it. I thought changing my name was really simple and didn’t take much effort at all. A few emails, phone calls, a trip to the DMV, Social Security, and the bank. After that, it was done.

I used it, but I had an inexpensive groupon for it. I liked it.

Maybe it’s not worth paying for it then. I thought it would make my life easier but if its the same amount of work as doing it on my own I’d rather not throw cash down on this kind of service. They kept hyping it up at Davids Bridal when I went for my dress/fittings so I was curious.

I didn’t use it, but I didn’t personally find it to be too difficult to change my name. For example, you start at the SS office, and they make their form available online. Then as beachbride1216:
said, you can go to the DMV, etc. And my bank just needed to see our marriage certificate.
I’m sure some women find it super helpful, but I’m glad I didn’t spend the money on the kit myself because I don’t think it would have helped expedite things for me too much.

Eh, I think it’s a waste. It wasn’t as painful of a process as I thought it might be.

You definitely don’t need it – changing your name is not as difficult or as labor intensive as some people would have you believe. Change your name on your social, then DMV and then send in or bring in those documents along with your marriage certificate to most places and you’re set!

Thanks for the feedback! I think I’ll probably just keep the $30 in my bank account and do it myself.
