After months of planning and the whirlwind of the big day dies down, you might feel bored or let down and like all of the wedding excitement is completely over. However, once you return from your honeymoon, there are a few things to check off your list. Here are 7 things every bride should do upon coming home from the honeymoon.
Change your name
Are you taking your husband’s last name? Depending on your state, it might look a little different. Once you have mailed your marriage license to your state’s Register of Deeds and they have processed it, you will need to order a few copies of it online. I recommend 3. They cost about $10.00 each. After they arrive, you will need to go to your local Social Security Administration office to file for a name change on your card. Once you receive your new SS card, you can now apply for a new driver’s license at your DPS or DMV office. Then, after your new license comes in the mail, you can now update your passport with your new name. There are a number of different avenues as to applying for a US Passport; some people go through their Congressional office or simply do it online.
