Miss to Mrs.

It’s a long time tradition for women to change their last name when they get married, most commonly taking the husband’s last name. It is definitely a personal choice and couples are increasingly finding creative ways to go about changing or combining last names. Whatever you and your husband decide to do after you are officially married, there are certain key documents you will need to update with your new last name, including your social security card, driver’s license, passport, credit cards etc. Keep in mind that you will need to show a certified copy of your marriage license on every name changing occasion. Besides the legalities, there are other printed materials you will need to update as well, such as stationery. Picking out new designs for note cards, address labels, moving announcements and business cards is the fun part! Are you considering changing your name or will you be keeping your maiden name?

    The 1982 Greece law is an interesting bit of info…
