It has definitely made the process more simple, I don’t have to sit down and make list after list on where I have to go to change my name, So it has been a major time saver! I was only lucky enough to have come across your name change kit due to a few Google searches, If you haven’t already, I’d strongly recommend approaching a few bridal mags in the hope of getting your name out there more! It literally has been a godsend. Cassandra, 2014
It made everything easier by providing a list of the places where I would need to change my name. I love the update emails as I still havnt got around to changing my name so that helps! Amanda, 2014
I purchased it for my daughter as she was a little overwhelmed at the amount of places she needed to contact. It saved a lot of running around and very helpful as the updates prevented submitting the outdated forms and having to fill in more paperwork. Easy to commit time to filling them in all at once and getting them sent in one day. A great time saver, I didn’t have to waste time running around to many different offices collecting forms.

I Thought it would be posted out… took me a while to realise it was all online… Sometimes I find it easier having the physical forms in front of me straight away :) But that’s only a little thing – I know I can print them out! Jennifer, 2014
Made the very time consuming process of changing my name much more straight forward. I really appreciated the tick list as a prompt for many organisations who need to be notified of your name change. Sally, 2014
I had problems downloading the kit, and after a few emails back and forwards with Vanessa I contacted my work’s IT department only to discover that I can’t download things onto my work computer due to security restrictions. Vanessa was very understanding and gave me a refund straight away. So although I haven’t actually used the name change kit, I have given it 4 stars because of the amazing product that I’m sure it is and the suburb customer service I received.
This kit has helped me so much I was so confused to what I had to get done
It was really stressing me out. Saved me time and helped me know where I had to change my name.
Thanks so much x Cindy, 2014
Easy and time saving. Loved it! Danielle, 2014
It has made the entire process simple! Something I was very concerned about dealing with after the wedding is now so easy! Very very pleased! Keep up the great work! Ramonda, 2014
Time saving, stress reducing, easy access and really informative. It made the process smoother and less daunting.
Would recommend to any bride to be! Name withheld, 2014
I found the checklist really handy as it has helped me remember the businesses that i didnt really think of and helped me in the process of how to do everything. Karina, 2014
Made the whole process easy to understand and logical steps, saved time and headaches! Love it! Vicki, 2014
The name change kit saved me heaps of time. I have a checklist for all the places I need to change my name including a list of ones I would have forgotten if I hadn’t had the kit! It’s been great to have easy access to the phone numbers and forms that I need too, rather than having to go searching for them! The kit is worth every cent! Amey, 2014
The name change kit has saved lots of time, clearly outlining the process and listing nearly all the providers you need to change your name it. It would literaly have saved me hours. Amy, 2014
Saved time and made things easy by consolidating it all into the one place. There is actually a lot involved and it is really time consuming so it really helped me. Bridgit, 2014
Given all the info I need so I don’t have to chase it. Included things I wouldn’t have even thought of. Alison, 2014
I had no idea where to start! I hate paperwork as it is and this just made it so simple! I just followed it step by step. The checklist was definitely useful! Great idea and advice! Thank you! Pru, 2014
The checklist was great & the forms have been the most benificial. A great idea that is very helpful for all new brides. I have purchased the kit for a friend and I’m sure she will also find it very benificial. Chrystal, 2014
I had no idea where to start. Literally no idea. Your kit is amazing!!! Just like you said it would, it took my step by step through the process and gave me all the info and forms and everything that I needed. If I’d tried to do it on my own I bet I’d have given up half way through!! Lol!!! Emma, 2014
Thanks Vanessa for such a great kit that has saved my life, and also for the updates, I really appreciate the time and effort that must be involved in emailing them out. Good one!
It was confusing knowing which forms I was required to use. I sent away the Queensland name change form and paid $160 only to be told it was not required, lucky for me they were willing to refund the $160. Turns out for me I really didn’t need the name change kit. For others though I can see how it would be useful. Amy, 2014
Response: Thanks for your feedback Amy, and sorry that your experience wasn’t the quick and easy one it should have been. I have edited the kit to make sure it is very clear in explaining what forms you need to send off and when. Kindest regards, Vanessa.
The best part of the name change kit was having all the important forms, even ones you didn’t think about! One of the best things is that it gets updated with any changes to the forms. Name withheld, 2014
The manual was the part of the kit that helped me the most as I learnt a lot about the name change process for different companies. I imagine I would have wasted a lot of time going back and forth to companies if I didn’t read the manual first. I think it should be more personalised to your state. I felt like I downloaded an unnecessary amount of forms that were for other states. The option to only download national and your home state forms would be much better. Penny, 2014
Response: Thank you Penny, I have taken your advice on board and the name change kit is now sorted by state. I really appreciate your feedback, thank you! Vanessa
Which part of the kit did I like the most? Honestly I loved it all…I had tried to find all the forms myself before I found the kit but once I found the kit it made everything so much easier. Name not provided, 2014

THANK YOU VANESSA!!!! I love your name change kit, it has bought back my sanity!! I really thought I was going to go bonkers, I wish I had found you before I got half way through this horrid process. Stacey, 2013
When a friend mentioned how many things needed to be done, I panicked! Your kit has made it really easy, I would have been an anxious mess trying to do all of this myself. Name requested to be withheld, 2013
Our celebrant informed us of your kit. This kit is of interest because there is so much to try think off and this makes it super easy. Name requested to be withheld, 2012
Three weeks after the wedding I went to Births Deaths and Marriages to get my official wedding certificate and the customer service lady mentioned I had the long haul adhead of me now – ie making a list of people to change my name with / hunting down forms etc. I went straight to my husband’s office to see if there was a way I could outsource it and found your website. Thank you for making it easy. Name requested to be withheld, 2012
I didn’t even realise a product like yours existed. When I googled “how to change your name when married” you came up. I thought terrific. I can get everything done at once. Name requested to be withdeld, 2012
I have had fantastic feedback from my clients about your name change kit and have found it to be a great resource to pass on.
Irene, Marriage Celebrant, 2010
What a fabulous idea and a fabulous kit, it has made the process of changing my name so much more straight forward and organised.
