1. Update your social media profiles.
Make sure to update your social media profiles to reflect your new married name. This will ensure that all of your friends and family are up-to-date on your latest news.
2. Notify your insurance company of your new status.
This is an important step in making sure that you are properly covered as a married person. Make sure to contact your insurance company and update your policy as soon as possible.
3. Change your name on your driver’s license and other important documents.
Changing your name on your driver’s license and other important documents is a necessary step in officially changing your name. Make sure to do this as soon as possible after getting married.
4. Update your will and estate planning documents, if necessary.
If you have updated your will and estate planning documents recently, there is no need to do anything further. However, if you have not updated these documents recently, you may want to consider doing so in light of your recent marriage.
5. Close out any joint bank accounts or credit cards you may have.
Once you are married, it is important to close out any joint bank accounts or credit cards you may have. This will help to ensure that both of you are only responsible for debts incurred under your own names.
6. Transfer any assets that are in both of your names to just your name.
If you have any assets that are currently in both of your names, it is important to transfer them to just your name after getting married. This will help to avoid any confusion down the road about who owns what property.
7. Create a new budget and stick to it!
Creating a new budget after getting married is a great way to make sure that both of you are on the same page financially post-wedding. Make sure to sit down and discuss your financial goals and expectations for the future so that you can create a budget that works for both of you.
