How to change your name

As a wedding officiant I am often asked “how do I change my last name?” after the wedding ceremony.  So I have pulled together a short checklist that may help get you started.  

​Name change check list

  • Get multiple certified copies of your marriage license

  • Update your Social Security card - ss-5 form click here

  • Get a new driver’s license - required to be done in-person

  • Notify your employer
