    yay!  I'm glad you finally got it and can officially become MRS!


    I'm crossing my fingers that I'll be able to use the copy we get when we're down there.  I've heard some people are able to use the unofficial copy while others are denied and must wait.  I guess it's just up to the DMV/Social Security clerks discretion?

      I got married on 7/30/2010 (Friday) in MBJ - so if you start counting on Monday 8/2 - first business day after...I'm in my sixth week & no marriage license yet :(  I thought they said six weeks, so I'm at least waiting until the weekend & then I'll email my coordinator next week if it hasn't come by then.  Good luck to the rest of you, I'm anxious about changing my name too :)  (not so anxious to stand in the long line at Social Security though! ha!) :)

            Yes ladies...it was a long time coming...good luck with those of you whom have not received it yet and I hope that you get it much sooner than I did!!!  But, like Mrs.J.2011 said...you can always try using the marriage certificate that you receive right after your married and see if it works.  I do suggest that you call your local Social Security Office and DMV to make sure they except it first, before you wait in lines for nothing!
