As with saving your top tier, changing your last name is a wedding tradition thats almost always expected but not always practiced.
If you are on the fence about whether to change your last name, take some time to think about your name, your identity, your family, and what’s important to you. This seems to be a hot topic at the moment and I figured I would put in a couple thoughts while the ball was already quickly rolling through our generation. A Harvard study found that women with college degrees were 2 – 4 times more likely to retain their last name as compared with women without college degrees. Whatever the reason is, its a personal choice thats yours to make and should make you happy.


It’s time to change your last name, there are so many important documents with your name on it that will need altering. It seems that around the world for as long as marriage has existed the bride is expected to replace her last name with the last name of her husband. Why is it more likely or more socially accepted that a women with advanced education will keep her last name?
Make sure you have your Marriage Certificate before trying to make any leeway with any of the steps below. My guess… thousands of years of gender politics, inequalities, and repetitive tradition have played havoc on our perception of personal choice.


One really important factor before changing your identification (drivers license or passport) is to make sure you wait until after your honeymoon or preplanned trips before changing these docs.
If you change it before your trip, the name on the official travel document and your identification won’t match.
