Call the town hall and ask them, they will definitely know. I didn’t know you needed to fill out the license any certain way. I know theres a spot that asks what will your name be after marriage? I put my married name as my answer but I’ll still need to get copies of the license and send them to social security and stuff. Putting my husband’s last name on the license didn’t do anything to change my name.

yes you want to do it afterward for 2 reasons:

 

1.) So if your honeymoon is out of the country you’re okay.

 

2.) You probably will not have all the required documents beforehand (i.e marriage license/certificate)
