I'm Married, Now What?

On December 31, 2016 the snow poured here in Vancouver, a rarity even though we are in Canada, rain is normally what happens in the Lower Mainland.  But lucky for me my winter wonderland wedding dream became reality and our day went off without a hitch.  Our wedding was flawless, nothing that mattered went wrong and I believe this is because I surround myself with amazing people.  A huge thank you to my parents, maid of honour, bridesmaids, groomsmen, groomswomen, family and friends for making our day so special!

It’s really hard to describe how I feel after our big day, it was an emotional day and lots of happy tears, but afterwards the feeling I felt and still feel, is indescribable, besides happy and joyful its comfortable and confident.  I felt this way before but I feel it even more now, a secure comfort knowing that I married the man of my dreams, someone I can talk to every day and who understands me and loves me for all my faults and my strengths.  It’s a really neat feeling. 
And don’t get me wrong, you can still have these feelings even if you don’t get married; this is just me talking about me.

And now I have to think to myself, I’m married, now what?

For some, they keep their last name, but not this girl; I have been looking forward to this day my whole life!  And now the real work begins, and so do the bills, it’s not cheap to change everything but for me, it’s worth every penny!

I thought it might be nice to share, all in one place, all the ID’s that need to be changed once you decide to change your name in BC:

  • Your Employer
  • B.C. Health Services Card
  • B.C. Driver’s License
  • Car Insurance (ICBC)
  • Canadian Passport
  • Social Insurance Number
  • Bank Account
  • Credit Cards
 *Notice you do not see the legal change of name application in the Province of BC on my list.  That is because your marriage certificate is your legal name change with the BC government*

Your Employer
Each employer is different, so contact your HR department or your boss for the proper paperwork to fill out.

B.C. Health Services Card
If you are employed your name change for this will go through your employer and they will send it in for you.  If you are not, contact Health Insurance BC at 604.683.7151 or 1.800.663.7100 to change your name on your BC Services Card. After you’ve received your confirmation letter via mail, you can visit an ICBC driver license office to officially change your name on your services card. Don’t forget to bring your confirmation letter.

B.C. Driver’s License
If you moved in with your husband after the wedding for the first time, you will need to change the address on your license. You can do this online or in person but going in person will allow you to change your name at the same time (although this can be done with the above). Don’t forget to bring marriage certificate, two pieces of ID in both your old or new name and money to pay for the new license. (Looking for the closest office near you? Click here.)

Car Insurance
When you have your new married name temporary license (usually a yellow piece of paper until the real thing is mailed to you 2 weeks later) you can change your name on your insurance. There are a lot of small Autoplan insurance agencies in each city and anybody can do it for you. Don’t forget to bring your temporary driver’s license, your marriage certificate and obviously, your insurance papers from your car.

Canadian Passport
If you have a lot of flights scheduled I would hold off and leave this as the last piece of ID you change as you don’t want to risk booking flights in the wrong name and running into issues.  You can stay you’re your maiden name and shouldn’t have any issues flying with it at all. I’ve heard you could book a ticket with your maiden name and fly with a passport in your married name, if you carry your marriage license with you at all times. But that is hear say so make sure you look into that before flying.
For any name change, you have to apply for a new passport. You cannot use a passport renewal process for a name change; unfortunately it needs to be a new Adult General Passport Application form. You’ll need proof of Canadian citizenship (birth certificate or citizen certificate), two supporting pieces of ID in your new name, two photos, one signed by a guarantor and required fees. You will also need your marriage certificate (original or a copy.) 

Social Insurance Number
You will need to change your name attached to your Social Insurance Number with the Canada Revenue Agency. You must do this change in person (There are exceptions, if you live more than 100km from a Service Centre, classic Canada, wide open spaces) at a Service Canada Office.  Don’t forget to bring: your social insurance number, if you haven’t memorized it, your marriage certificate and another piece of ID. You can also change your marital status and link your account to your spouse’s number.

Bank Account
If you’re opting for a joint account you will need to go into the bank with your spouse and will need to bring your marriage certificate to change my last name and then your spouse will need ID to add them to your new joint account.

Credit Cards
The procedure for this will vary from company to company. Some credit cards will be fine with a phone call and providing your new married name, others will want a copy of your marriage certificate mailed in with a copy of your ID. 

The items listed above are the major things to change after your wedding, I’m sure as time goes on I will find my maiden name popping up here and there to be changed!

I hope this list helps you as it has for me and enjoy being married as much as I do!

I’m also looking forward to blogging more, so I hope you will come back from time to time and read what I have to say.

Happy Wednesday my friends

So Let Me Ask You.....

This is such a hard one for me, as a TV-holic I watch so many shows that suck me in each and every week, it's hard for me to choose just one, so here are my top 5!

1. The Goldbergs - Thursdays on ABC
For those who grew up in the 80's what a time it was, this show transports you each week right back to the 80's where the hair was big, the clothes were... bad, and creativity was abundant because the internet did not exist!  Trust me check this one out, it's GOLD (bergs).

2. Survivor - Wednesdays on CBS
Could I do it for a month?  Could you?  Only way to find out would be to be trapped there for a month.  I hate spiders, bugs, sand and dirt, so my odds are very low that I would survive.

3.  The Good Wife - Sundays on CBS
Not only do I love this show but JEFFERY DEAN MORGAN (Denny from Grey's Anatomy) has joined the cast.  Spending one month drooling over him is something I could definitely handle!

4. How to Get Away With Murder - Thursdays on ABC
Well now I know how to get away with murder, would I ever dare?  nope.  Each week a new twist and turn comes our way out of left field, having you second guess yourself and who you think the killer is!  One of the best shows out there, I route for the good guys and the bad guys each time!

5. Once Upon A Time - Sundays on ABC
A month in a fairy tale, it's every girls DREAM!  And it's filmed right in my backyard (well close enough)!  I think this show would be the best behind the scenes out there, you would get to see how long it takes for wardrobe and makeup and how they piece the past and present together in every episode.  Not to mention hanging out with the cast, so much fun!

YOUR TURN, tell me what TV show(s) would you want to be trapped in for a month?

What Does Fall Mean To You?

For most, fall means big sweaters, copious cups of tea, stylish boots and warm cozy nights! But not this girl; I am most excited about my favourite shows returning and new shows beginning.  With the nights cooling off, I have an excuse to sit inside cuddling with my favourite tea, main squeeze, little boy and bestie, to enjoy it all, not that I have ever needed an excuse to watch TV.

And with that being said ... drum roll please... here it is:

OhSoLindsay's infamous television schedule for the 2015 fall season.  A jam packed complete guide to when your favourite shows are on and when the new shows you've been waiting for premiere!

Enjoy my friends and Happy September!
