What you need to know about changing your name and traveling

Anyone who reads this knows that my heart is for the family. And to me, family still means what it did fifty years ago, a men and woman who are married and have children together. That’s the way God designed families.. And now, let me get off of my soapbox here..

The first thing you should know is that if you are going on the honeymoon right after the wedding, you will want to keep your original name on the travel documents. Going through a name change is going to take some time to get through the red tape. It is better not to bother the resort or the cruise line people with that kind of thing.

It usually takes around seven weeks to process everything. So you will want to keep this in mind if you want to take your honeymoon later on or are a frequent traveler.

You will want to let your travel agent know of your name change as soon as it iscomplete. This way your travel agent can adjust everything in her records and make sure the correct name is on all the paperwork.Once you have your new name on your driver’s license is usually the best time to contact your travel agent.
