    If you are ready, go for it!  Unless having a huge expensive wedding is really important to you guys, I don’t see why not.

    According to my salary as a grad student, I would have it sooner rather than later. I don’t think that you’ll be able to save too much more, and everything is already planned.

    I’d have it sooner, too. Yeah, with more money, you could worry less about budget… but that argument could also get you to push back the date every year, because with each year comes more money, and lets face it: there will ALWAYS be bigger, more expensive, etc. Once married, all that extra money can go towards your life together (house, kids, travel, etc) instead of going for the wedding. Even more exciting.
    Everything is planned and if you were happy with those plans, go marry the man of your dreams, don’t push it back.

    • Wedding: October 2010

    Waiting to have a nice wedding is silly. We’re in the same situation. He is in med school and I’m finishing up a second degree. I could have a dream wedding in 3 years, but screw that. Its been 5 years and we’re ready… so small Oct 2010 wedding, here we come! I mean really… we’ll be spending our money elsewhere as husband and wife by that time. 🙂

    Also a grad student, and boyfriend is heading towards grad school also, so I hear you on this.  The idea of waiting till we’re actually, you know, making money and can afford to have a beautiful wedding is enticing.

    But the cold hard truth about being a grad student – after all that debt, you’re NEVER gonna be in a position to easily afford a lavish wedding.  So why not get married when you really want to get married?
