We have the same situation. My spouse's Brazilian passport is in his name prior to marriage. All other identity documents (Green Card, MN Drivers License) are in his married name.

 

We book his ticket in the name as shown in his Brazilian passport and we bring a certified copy of our marriage license on the trip along with his green card and it works fine.

  1. For boarding the plane to Brazil and upon arrival, use your Brazilian passport.
  2. To board the plane for your return trip, show your Green Card and a copy of your marriage license to document why there is a difference between the name on your green card and the name on your ticket.

You will be fine so don't worry about it so much. As long as you book the tickets in your passport name you will be fine.
