ive entered US using K1 visa last september and will get married this Friday November 07 and also planning to send my AOS after that. We are planning to visit the midwest for christmas, and my question are.., will there be a problem in the airport or immigration with me? i don't have any ID yet aside from the SSN card, and im sure they will use my passport as identification for my plane ticket and also, should i use my new marriage name in the plane ticket? should i bring copy of marriage certificate? but i dont know because my passport is still in my maiden name and it will take like 3 months i guess to renew the passport with the new marriage name....so im really confused :(

I understood so far that it is best to use your name in which your passport is issued and only start using your new name once you have the corresponding id.

Besides that travelling is not a problem as you have a pending aos. i would bring an Noa for the aos as well as the marriage certificate with me ... Just in case...

Have a great and wonderful wedding day!

No, if you travel within the US you will not have to go through immigration checkpoints unless you are near the border, at the airport you can show the passport to verify who you are, passports are universal IDs. I don't have any ID yet aside from the SSN card, and im sure they will use my passport as identification for my plane ticket and also, should i use my new marriage name in the plane ticket? Use whatever names is on your passport , it has to match the ticket. should i bring copy of marriage certificate? It will not hurt to have it, but it is not needed. but i dont know because my passport is still in my maiden name and it will take like 3 months i guess to renew the passport with the new marriage name....so im really confused :(

You are free to travel within the US without an issue, it would be wise to have your copy of I-94 and passport with you in case there is any issues with the law.
