@NAvery:  Although I am not married, I can give you some pointers on the last two. Contact an attorney. You go, have a meeting and then they draw up everything for you. My SO is my healthcare POA only because I was having some procedures done and wanted to be safe. I would suggest them.

You’ve pretty much got the complete list.  If you have a lawyer you use for family business, this would be who you talk to about your wills, otherwise you can use any number of online services, and/or Costco even sells a “how to write my will” kit.

Change next of kin details – he needs to list you in your new name, as his wife, anywhere you have this information.

Don’t forget you can change your tax withholdings if you want. I did at one job I do work for, but not my full time job.

A joint bank account. We didn’t have one before the wedding, and could only deposit cheques from our wedding addressed to both of us, into a joint account, not into one of our individual accounts. Had no idea about that before!
