that's all you need. Technically you do not have to "change" anything by the end of the year because the marriage certificate dated and signed at this date in 2005 is proof to the IRS and that is all you need to claim married and get your deductions before 12/31 and any other financial breaks that being married will give you. But get the social security status changed as that's kind of the "master status" for everything.
If you have a living will, then change that to reflect the power of attorney for your husband, if you so desire. That's so important in an emergency!
Have a wonderful marriage!!!
