If you are a bride or groom who is legally changing your last name after your wedding, then this checklist is perfect for you. It's a list of things/places you may want to update or notify after your last name is officially changed. I hope one of you newlyweds would find it useful. This isn't a complete list, but it is a great start.

  • Update car registration coverage
  • Begin gift registry returns
  • Finalize your wedding album and portraits
  • Clean and preserve your wedding gown
