    Legally you probably can’t change your name until you are married.  You will need he marriage certificate to take to the Social Security office in order to justify the name change.  Otherwise, you would have to go to court and petition your name change which costs s decent amount of money.  You might ask your employer if you can go by your married name there before you get married but your paychecks will still have to be in your maiden name until you get married.

    I would just go by your new name and when you get married, change it and go by that.

    I think it’d be weird if a girl in our office was like, ‘oh i’m so and so!” and then i found out she got married 3 months later…

    I don’t think you can use your married name until you legally change it with the social security administration and have the marriage certificate and all that. With your pay and benefits and stuff, they have to use your legal name.
