FROM THIS DAY FORWARD...

Changing your name can be confusing and overwhelming! What to change it on, whether to use his name or your name professionally... and on and on. Here is an article from www.thenest.com to help you along.
.
FOR STARTERS
Make sure that your wedding officiant mails in
your signed marriage license ASAP so you receive
your marriage certificate. You’ll need this certificate
(or in some cases, just a copy of it) to apply for a
name change.
FOR “THE MAN”
Get a new Social Security card (you’ll need your
marriage certificate). Go to SocialSecurity.gov.
Get a new driver’s license (you’ll need to bring your new
SS card and marriage certificate).
Mail in your passport (with a new photo) for an updated
one. Go to Travel.State.gov/passport.
Alert voter registration at DeclareYourself.org. Click
“Register to Vote” and then check the box that says you
are changing your name.
FOR YOUR WALLET
Change your bank account and order new checks.
(Download our “How to Merge Your Money” checklist for
more great tips on how to meld your accounts.)
Change your credit cards (even ones from
retail stores).
Update any stocks, IRAs, mortgages, leases, or money
market accounts.
Order an annual credit report to make sure all
old accounts are closed—and that no one is
opening accounts using your maiden name. Go
to AnnualCreditReport.com.
FOR WORK AND HOME
Change HR paperwork at your office, get a
new email address, and alert your contacts of
the change.
Update insurance cards and policies—print out our
“Insurance Inventory”—go to TheNest.com and search
for “insurance checklist”.
Change your name on utility bills, like cable, gas, and
your cell phone.
Contact alumni associations, gyms, and other organizations you belong to.

BRIDE INSPIRED!

I have come to love the ideas of my teal and raspberry bride! Look at how lovely this palette can be! Play with the colors and make them deeper, mute them or add gold to them, as she is doing, to add a surprise element to an already ingenious vision!


THE BLING AND THE CHA- CHING!

Are you are hoping that Santa will bring you one of these? The latest trends in
engagement rings courtesy of www.theknot.com. Read the article and then send the one titled "rules of engagement" to that certain guy who needs a hint!



SERENDIPITY

I have been so busy and so interested in other blogs, that I haven't posted for over a week! So, to get back in the swing, I thought I would share with you the color palette of one of my 2008 brides, inspired by a pocket mirror she found on etsy and an incredible bouquet I happened on in a search for ideas for her flowers. How Pretty!!!
