I’m going to get married in a while, I’ll be leaving for my honeymoon a day after the wedding, I don’t have time change my name on the passport, even if I use the fastest processing rate. What should I do?

You can still use your passport with your maiden name, just make sure that the airplane ticket has your maiden name written on it, not your married name. Once you’ve arrived from your honeymoon, you can change it and congratulations.
