Your passport and booking name need to match. So book under your maiden name.

Use your madien name.  You cannot travel internationally or even domestically if you ticket does not match your form of ID.

We aren’t honeymooning until July 29th but I went ahead an postponed a name change just in case.  Although, I’m getting kind of comfortable with the maiden name.  (Don’t tell the hubs haha).

I JUST looked this same thing up yesterday, and all the advice was use your maiden name, it makes it SO much easier to travel since everything will be in your maiden name.

yes, your passport must match your ticket. 

keep in mind that even months after your wedding, if you travel, you need to book under your passport name exactly.  marriage certificates will not be good enough for ID changes.

i have been at the airport where a newly married couple have tried to board a flight to cancun and they were flat out denied due to her passport still in her maiden name and her ticket in her hyphenated married name.  they tried to show their marriage certificate as proof and they said that it was useless.  it was sad b/c the bride was in tears.
