Updating Your Name After the Wedding

60-80% of brides take their husband's last name after the wedding. If you are taking your husband's surname, it's generally advised that you wait until you return from your honeymoon ... especially if a passport is involved. This ensures the last name on your ID matches the name on your passport, airline or cruise tickets, and your credit cards.

One you return, make a checklist  list of all the places you need to update your last name. This will help ensure you don't miss anything!

Here's a short list to get you started:

  • Auto Registration
  • Auto Insurance Policy
  • Bank Accounts
  • Credit Card Accounts
  • Deeds & Titles
  • Dental Records
  • Driver's License
  • Employee Records
  • Investment Accounts
  • Life Insurance Policy
  • Medical Records
  • Memberships
  • Online Accounts
  • Passport
  • Post Office Records
  • Social Security Records
  • Stock Certificates
  • Tax Agencies (State and Federal)
  • Voter Registration Card
