Wedding Wednesdays: Maidenchange

All you need to do is fill in your social security number and a few other personal items, sign and drop in the mail.  It has instructions or forms for your social security card, passport, driver’s license, debit and credit cards, voter and vehicle registration, name change notification, and IRS change of address.  I mean, how would I even know that I need to fill out all those things?  Survey says, I wouldn’t.  If you’re a bride-to-be or newly married gal, Maidenchange will seriously make your life easier.  (And after all that wedding planning, couldn’t you use a break?)  If you’re looking for the perfect wedding gift for a friend (and not really trying to scrape the bottom of the registry barrel), there’s gift cards too.  Trust me, your friend will thank you.
