My boyfriend said yesterday, “So you’re okay with something in the Fall right?” Does that mean this fall or next fall? If it’s this fall, he’d better get a move on! But I’m thinking he means next fall. Which also makes me antsy since I start my PhD next fall. Ack! Any other brides to be planning a wedding while working on a doctorate? I don’t want to anticipate anything and ruin a surprise, but I can’t help but feel anxious!

Exciting! I agree that you need to try and not think about it because it makes it harder to wait!

haha, can’t wait to hear what happens! i think misses potato chips and hot wings are both planning their weddings and studying for a phd at the same time.

Haha! It sounds to me like he meant “the fall” as in the season of fall. I would think he’s probably thinking ahead to next year. But obviously I don’t know him at all so I could be wrong. 🙂

Was probably asking bc of the PHD program if you’d be ok with Fall. Thats just my take on it.

I’m working on my master’s degree, and honestly I’ve told boyfriend very seriously that although I’m thinking about getting married, there’s no way I could imagine planning a wedding while being a full-time grad student. It’s just too f’in crazy.
(Also, the broke-itude of the grad student state REALLY precludes planning a wedding. I need to get a JOB so I can start paying for the wedding stuff!)
But if you can handle it, go baby go! 🙂

I will be planning a wedding during my phd (I am preplanning now!). And just about every girl in my department got married during the program 🙂

I have started planning my wedding while finishing up my Master’s degree. Honestly I am glad that we have 18 mos. to plan because honestly I wouldn’t be able to do both at once. However I am also working fulltime, so that does make a difference as well.
I am graduating next month so I will start the bigger planning then. We have the venue and the church booked, but not much else.
Everyone is different though so if you think you can do it, then I saw go for it!!!

How exciting!! A number of my friends are starting/completing their PhD’s while planning weddings, it’s totally do-able. As one of them said, to get to this point required a lot of time management, this is just like one more course that’s your favorite 🙂

stressful indeed, but totally do-able. It also depends on if you’ll have people around you that can help and if you’re planning in the same city as your wedding. The first year of the Ph.D. program is typically the most time consuming. I think this is especially true if you’re new to a city and learning about the culture and system. Let us know how it goes!
