    Sponsored Post DisclaimerChanging Your Name? Save Time and Sanity with MaidenchangeThe topic of changing one’s last name after marriage comes up a lot around here, and for good reason: It’s a big decision and it can be incredibly time-consuming to make it happen. There are forms to fill out, materials to get replaced and potentially huge wait times at the DMV or Social Security Office, two places where you likely have to actually make a physical appearance to make the change (check yo state for specifics).

    As it happens, I’m getting married next week (surprise!) and when our homies over at Maidenchange asked me to test drive their Standard name-change kit, it couldn’t have come at a better time. Unlike my first marriage, I’ve decided to take my partner’s last name legally and move my current last name to my second middle name (y’all, my name is about to get EPIC). I’ll still go by my maiden name professionally, because I’ve accomplished so much under the moniker, but it’s important to me that my family share one name. However, not having a car and working at home makes the process of changing my name a bit … well, hellish. So I was pretty stoked to be able to try out Maidenchange.

    I’ve heard stories told of it taking hours — like, 10 of ’em — to get through the name-change process and notify necessary parties (think: credit card companies, banks, the Post Office, etc.) and the forms and fees can be endless. Created by a husband and wife team who found the process to be overbearing, Maidenchange helps alleviate a lot of the hassle and headache. I simply filled out a form on their site and they sent me a handy dandy package with pre-addressed and stamped envelopes, a checklist and all the forms or instructions I need to get this show on the road. Plus, it came addressed to my soon-to-be name, which was pretty awesome. Packages start at $29, which isn’t a whole lot of skrilla considering the sanity you’ll be saving.

    Soon, I’ll be sporting my (significantly shorter) new last name and will have barely broken a sweat doing so. Head over to Maidenchange to start the process and save yourself a headache!

    Gold Foil Invitations from Catprint

    When it comes to wedding stationery, oftentimes it can be easier and more cost effective to take on the printing yourself -- but what if your home printer just isn't up to the job?

    There's long-held idea that a Broke-Ass wedding means a DIY, craft-filled fete. And sure, some of us are absolutely skilled at making the pretty from scratch, but others of us (like yours truly) don't have a single crafty bone in their body (for serious: I consider taking a can of spray paint to something a major DIY accomplishment) and are still totes focused on making our…

    Owners.com Newlywed Couple

    There are about a million and one different reasons why Broke-Ass Brides (and grooms) are just that, ranging from generally tight finances (man, those student loans can be a real jerk) to being frugal about the wedding to save for other Big Life Moments -- like buying a house. For those that fall into the latter category and have their sights set on buying and…

    Find a vintage wedding gown at an affordable price at Ieie Bridal

    Wedding dress shopping can be overwhelming. Sure, we've all seen episodes of "Say Yes to the Dress" where the bride tries on one or two gowns and -- with a teary-eyed entourage and beaming smile -- declares that yes, she has indeed found her dress. But then there are the episodes where the consultant pulls 15+ gowns and it's a big "nope" all around ...…

    Wouldn't wedding planning just be a breeze if you could create a wishlist, share it on one platform and get matched with pros and rentals that fit into your ideal budget? Even better if you earned points toward dollars off said rentals and purchases? Well, you know that if I brought it up, it's because it's a REAL THING YOU CAN DO. No, for serious.…
