Sorry, I don’t really have any advice because you know your situation a lot more than I do. Although I don’t think new furniture is more important than a wedding. I think 5 or 6 thousand is a very reasonable budget but would you be willing to compromise on that? If you just really want to be married maybe you could just have a small ceremony now and not have a reception. Then in 5 or 10 years when you are more financially stable you can have a vow renewal and have the celebration you really want. Just an idea. I hope you figure everything out.

I agree with the previous poster. Plan something smaller but just as special if you feel like this will strain your relationship or your budget. Although the budget is fair, there are always incidentals and surprise expenses, so I do see where he is coming from. 

In the end, you should both get what you want out of this wedding: to be married, to have a wonderful celebration large or small, and to be comfortable in your lives after the party.

Good luck.
