We came home with our temporary marriage certificate that we actually signed on our wedding day, but here in Ontario (i'm assuming all Canada) you can't officially do the name change with the temporary certificate.  Or I guess I should say, I can't change my SIN, licence, or health card without the official document (which I just got). It's been a bit of a pain.

 

Yet.. I emailed my bank and basically said 'hey this is my new name' and they changed it for me. ;)

 

I still can't change my mortgage though without going to the lawyer with the marriage certificate, so i'm just going to hold off on that one.  We need a few months with no wedding-related bills! :P

Laura, I know I thought the exact same thing bc thats what I was told but I just tried it to see what they would do I just figured the worst they could say was no, but I had no problems at all using that paper, to change my SS# I was quite shocked it was so easy to change!  The guy at the SS office looked at the paper and my drivers license and asked me "so you were married in turks and caicos" and I said yes, he typed it in the computer and that was it, within a week I had my new SS card and from there got my license changed with the same paper no questions asked and it even says on the paper that its just documenting the fact that it was entered into the T&C goverments sytem

Laura - check online for a Service Ontario office that is open Saturdays. It will probably be packed, but it might mean one less day of work missed.

Ok so I got your request Brandy, I guess it is working now. Meggers I don't have your full name or I would add you too!

 

Laura wow, good luck girl, I am saying some prayers for you.

 

Started my seating chart and work out number with the rental company today for the tents and chairs. i have had some people back out so my numbers went from 140 to about 120 i think in the end. 

 

Brandy I just checked out your AHR pics and they are amazing, stunning set up, it was sooo beautiful!

 

Name change uhhhh, i have only changed mine at work and on facebook so far lol What a headache it is. I wonder if there is a list out there for all the possible things we may have to change? i guarantee there are things we will probably all forget about.

oh and lesee the tent looks great. I was wondering how I could hide all those polls. I might just have to get creative like you and try that.

Sherri I did get the deal, now to figure out these sites cause i have never done a photobook before, looks pretty self explanatory though so I should manage lol

All of my guest pics are on snapfish though which sucks cause now i have to upload some of them again to mixbook but a good thing is for my honeymoon book everything is on facebook and I can copy from there to mixbook which should take less time. Actually I may use mixbook for the honeymoon and snapfish for something else.

Looking forward to meeting you on June 22nd at the toronto get together. Laura are you coming?

Lisa i just sent you a PM :)

 

i found a great list today in regards to name changing over on Service Canada's website.

work, facebook and the bank have been so easy to change a name!! lol the rest are a bit of a pain.

 

i think you can actually call to change your name with revenue canada, but then you have to go to a Service Canada location to change your SIN and then to a Service Ontario location to change your license and health card.

wish i could go to the toronto get together but it's too far for me - esp for a work night. being in bowmanville, it would probably take me almost 2 hrs to get to square one with rush hour on a weeknight. boo!  another time!

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
