I’d call yourself Mrs. Married in person and on everything that’s easy to change until you do the actual legal change with passport, etc.

If it were me , I’d call myself by my new name. Sign whatever name you want on credit card receipts. Merchants don’t care at all anymore. The only thing you need ID for is flying. So as long as the name on your plane tickets match the name on your ID,  then you’re good. It doesn’t matter anywhere else. Just go ahead and start changing over the informal things, like your signature, work stuff, etc.

Still GO by your new name!  It’s just not legal.

@cb543822:  I will change my name sometime in the 3 months after my wedding (month 1 is honeymoon and month 4 is a plane flight where Fiance put my married name on). I plan to go my by married name after the wedding socially, maiden name at work (this will be that way forever), and sign everything my maident name.

@cb543822:  Yes, you can change your name on your driver’s license and social security without changing your passport. That’s what I did. My passport is still in my maiden name and it’ll probably be that way for awhile!
