Chances are you’ll already have a strong opinion as to whether or not you should legally change your last name well before you get engaged.
I personally struggled for about three years before AND after we got married with the decision to legally change my last name or not. Here are just a few examples of recent designs from the Keep Calm-o-Matic creative community.
It’s a long story that I might write about here one day, but I felt extremely connected to my last name (as I know a lot of women do as well).

It’s time to change your last name, there are so many important documents with your name on it that will need altering.

Even though when I was a little girl I fantasized about getting married and doodled my fake future husband’s last name after mine, I never really considered having a sort of identity crisis at the thought of doing it. Make sure you have your Marriage Certificate before trying to make any leeway with any of the steps below.
When the time came to actually change it, I felt that not only would I be losing a small part of myself if I got rid of my last name, but that I would also be losing my cultural identity in a way (going from a Jewish last name to a non-Jewish one). 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.
While my family actually encouraged me to change my last name (probably trying to get rid of me. If you change it before your trip, the name on the official travel document and your identification won’t match.

And what made me happy in the end was deciding to drop my middle name and make it my maiden name instead (even though I still go by my maiden name professionally). That was the perfect compromise for myself that has worked out great so far…except when making restaurant reservations, in which I totally forget which name I used.
