Name change during CR-1 process

I’m American and just got married to a foreigner, we will be doing the CR-1 marriage green card process. Changing my name on everything will take some time (2-3 months) but we want to get the application started now. Can I start now as the petitioner while using my maiden name, then submit new documentation to USCIS once my name actually gets changed? Or should I just wait to change my name altogether until after the CR-1 is complete? OR should I risk further delays and wait to start the CR-1 until all my name change stuff is complete?
