Giveaway: Will you change names after marriage?

by Erika Torres

Have you thought about changing your name after you get married?

How do you change names? Do you even want to?

It can be a frustrating time, and many women are not necessarily happy about a looming name change, but a surprising 90% of brides will inevitably go on to make the change.

I changed my name after marriage, and I still consider myself a feminist. The process usually involves making a detailed list then calling each company, one by one, and learning what process to follow with each.

Thankfully, Easy Name Change makes all that a thing of the past! And Newlyweds on a Budget is giving away 50 free Easy Name Change kits, valued at $30 each.

Your name change options

Most brides will just take their husband’s surname in place of their own. Anyone can have a joint surname (both your husband and your surnames together). Most states also allow you to move your maiden name to a middle name. You can also simply leave your name as it is.



How Easy Name Change makes it easier

Rather than hunting down the forms yourself, researching the fine print for supporting documents, costs, and filing details, Easy Name Change provides absolutely everything you need.

  • Pre-filled forms for all agencies and companies
  • Personalized and ready to send letters and faxes where required
  • Proof docs required for each company
  • Comprehensive & researched procedures for each company
  • The Name Change guide, explaining the entire process

 Get it for free!

Save yourself 8 hours of research and hassle with a personalized and ready to send Easy Name Change kit. You can even order before your wedding, so everything’s ready to go when your wedding certificate arrives.

My husband and I both changed our names (hyphenated the two), and it’s been a long process. I definitely took my time, but a year later I think it’s done everywhere. So no contest for me, but this is a cool service.

I want to keep my name but my bf is very much against it. He says you are not really a family but I highly disagree. I think it is a matter of personal preference and it is a highly personal choice at the end of the day.

This is a great giveaway! We’re getting married in 11 days (ack!) and I will be changing my name. Have you used this service before? I’m a little wary of online forms that require a ton of personal information, and also don’t want to get spammed for the rest of my life!

I got married in November and still haven’t started the name change process so this would be perfect for me!
