Getting married revokes any Will you have in place (unless the marriage is already anticipated and provided for in the Will) so you will almost always need to make a new one.  You shouldn’t wait until after the wedding to do this – it should be done beforehand.  Getting divorced does not revoke a Will completely but certain gifts and appointments will be invalid.  If a divorce or separation is anticipated, making a Will is one of the most important first steps to take.
