Things I have learned so far (remember this stuff if you are changing your name after you tie the knot)
1. Go to the social security office- if it's not too far. It's a creepy place full of total whackos.... but you can change your name there very fast. I was in and out in about 20 minutes... it beats mailing in your original marriage certificate and waiting for it to come back.
2. The DMV on Taft Road is closed Fridays. Seriously. I discovered this after driving all the way out there on Friday and getting way too excited about an empty parking lot. (Yes, I really thought for a second that I was the only person at the DMV and not going to wait in line. genius)
3. It is best if you change your driver's license and registration at the same time. This saves a trip to the DMV (which is conveniently closed on Fridays... lol). In order to change your name on your registration, you must first change your name on your insurance.. print new insurance cards and bring proof. Otherwise the DMV (which is conveniently closed on Fridays) will tell you to go away and come back.
I am still learning... so I'm sure I will have more to add after my 3rd trip to the DMV this afternoon. lol
