You will always be Jane (maiden name)...but you will be Jane (married name) too - if that makes any sense!
Sorry about that!!

good tip about not changing the passport until it expires and booking tickets under maiden name.

And this isn't even technically my 'legal' one which should be here in two months, but I'm taking it to him anyways. So much effort. I now have it changed at the bank, who brought up all sorts of domino like issues (cheques being written to me in maiden name, me writing cheques with maiden name, not matching my visa with my drivers... ick.) Just want to get it all out of the way.
If cost is important to you, I'd check around. I also went to the Service BC office in my area to change my DL. I received my new one in less than 5 business days.
I also took my notarized translation document to my bank and they accepted it without any problems. I'm thinking now that it wasn't needed to be notarized but I wanted to be on the safe side. I ordered new cheques and changed my name for everything, including my VISA, but I'm still waiting for that one.

OMG! This is such a helpful thread!!! It answers a lot of my questions but I have a few more...
What if we're having a Catholic ceremony abroad? and I think we have to have a civil wedding prior to as well? I can't tell you how confusing this whole process is... from gathering all the documents, translations, wedding certificate, marriage licence, the list goes on and on......

They didn't need it translated or anything. They said it looks enough like a marriage cert and has our names clear so I haven't had any trouble which is a relief.
