Finding a wedding photographer that works well with you and your fiancé, and has a style that compliments yours is such an important decision. Hopefully, our website will help you with that! I want nothing more than to make your experience an enjoyable and unforgettable one! Let's take some time to get to know each other a bit better...
The flowers have started the wither, the food has all been eaten. Your cake topper is wrapped lovingly and placed in the freezer for next year. You’re now home from your honeymoon and you’re settling into married life with your best friend. There seems to be so much to take care of, but you don’t really know where to start. And if you’re thinking of buying a house together or starting a family together, you definitely have a lot on your mind right now!
I found myself in this exact same position almost 10 years ago after I was married and then, I didn’t know where to begin with my name change either. Honestly, it took me quite some time to realize that there were a few more locations to change my name than I thought. So in order to make this a little bit easier on you I thought I would provide you ladies with a list that’s easy to access and loaded with helpful information! Let’s dive in!
Now that you have the major locations down and the majority of your heavy duty paperwork has been done, you’re ready to tackle the smaller updates. This shouldn’t take you long and may only require a quick email request or phone call. Even though they’re not as serious as the ones listed above, you definitely don’t want to overlook these.
Surprise! There are “kits” you can purchase for a small fee that will help you stay organized and point you in the right direction! If you want to save a few bucks and do-it-yourself (like I did) it’s totally possible. But for those of you who want some assistance and a little more structure than just hopping from one office to another not really knowing what to expect – these “kits” are for you.
Hitchswitch is The Knot’s version of the name change kit! They offer three packages at different price points, depending on your needs. The packages start at $29 and top out at $79. The Platinum $70 package even includes a brand new Passport photo.
Miss Now Mrs. offers a very similar service for name changing after marriage, and they even let you try their service before purchasing. They link you directly to all of the government forms you’ll need to get started. And they even have a fun section on their website for newly weds.
I hope this blog post has helped to shine some light on something that may be a little daunting. And once everything has been updated, hopefully it won’t be anything you’ll need to do again. Happy record keeping and congratulations on your new marriage!!!
