ETSA VISA Passport Problem

I am travelling on honeymoon from UK via LA on 31st May to Hawaii. As my passport (maiden name) was running out in June I have had a passport issued in my new name. This starts on 29th May (wedding day) but when I have tried to complete the

Visa Waiver form the system will not accept a passport that starts in the future. I have tried to get in touch with the US consulate, but they don't answer questions by phone and I can't find a relevant email address. All the email addresses I have tried bounce back saying 'all questions are answered by our website'!!! Any help much appreciated!

I guess I am surprised that they would issue a legal document like a passport without identification like a marriage license or such. A presumptive change ...

Did you try the agency in the UK who issued the passport? Is your old one valid at all?
