It’s official! Only 8 months after tying the knot, I can honestly call myself Mrs. Sarah Fournier.
The day has come, but not without what seemed to be the longest process ever. I’ve actually told people that if I knew how much work went into changing your last name, I wouldn’t have done it. The truth is, if I knew all the work that was required, it would have been a heck of a lot easier to actually do it.
I went into the name changing business completely blind and felt as though every time I turned around, I was reminded of yet another place that I needed to contact to change my name. It still seems too good to be true that I am officially Mrs. Fournier and no longer Miss Folk.
I wanted to make this process easier for all my friends getting married this year and in the coming years so that it would truly be an enjoyable (read: tolerable) experience. For this reason, I have decided to create the complete guide to changing your last name, including the places you need to go to change your name and the documents you need when you go there.
Check it out and feel free to share with your friends!
