    Hi everyone, new here and still getting the hang of it but love the look of the site and community! My name's Emily (currently Miss Emily Milton for one more year until I'm Mrs Emily Davis!), I'm 26 and my husband to be recently proposed, which was the most exciting day of my life, though will be surpassed by the day I get to have my dream wedding I've been thinking about for quite some time haha! Currently driving everyone I know mad going on about it so apologies in advance! This is probably a silly question but I was just wondering about how the surname change works when you get married, does it happen automatically once you're married or do you have to do something to change it? I always thought it was automatic but my mum tells me otherwise haha!

    Great to be here and looking forward to chatting with everyone!

    To get you started, please have a read of the forum rules, check out the brides checklist and introduce yourself on the newbies thread, all at the top of the forum - if you haven't already.

    In answer to your question, you have to contact every organisation after the wedding in order to change your name. It does take time. There's an official thread of all the organisations you need to contact.

    Enjoy the site x

    Thanks for the welcome! I do all that, thank you for the tip. I guess that makes sense, sounds like it'd be easier if it was automatic haha, I better get planning for that too...worth it when it's done though! x
