@nursingstudent0115: That is fantastic!!! I think your plan is pretty solid, it is kind of similar to what my own parents did. It worked out pretty well for them, I am sure it will work out for you too.

Do you know when you want to be married?

You guys sound like you really know what is imortant to you! And as a Bee who is in a similar situation, I totally agree with your sentiment. My fiance and I have been together for four years, but since I am finishing up grad school, we decided to have a long engagement and will not marry until 2014. LIke you, this plan really works for us. I want to focus on school so I can finish with honors, and we are saving like crazy these next three years (we will be responsible for about 2/3 of our wedding budget) to afford to have our wedding like we pictured it. And I really want to enjoy the planning of my wedding as well, which I won’t if I feel rushed.

Congrats to your plan! And the time will fly by!

Sounds like a great plan!  My fiance and I had similar conversations before we got engaged – they were not as specific, as we discussed things in hypotheticals hehe – but it is important to be on the same page about the future.  Congrats!

Yay!!!! Congrats!  That is exciting!  I was also in a long relationship before marrying, and we were very open with everyone about our plans to get married.  We waited until I was out of grad. school and until he had a solid job, and let me tell you, people were such haters about it!  I felt like people were constantly judging our relationship and looking at it as if we only loved each other enough to “kind of commit”,and that’s just not the case.  I don’t regret it at all.  I’m glad I didn’t rush through the end of my unmarried years – I needed time for that transition.  Also, it made my wedding day SO special to me (of course, everyone’s is), but it really hit me emotionally how long we had waited for the day and how much we had been through together.  Be careful about the people in your life that you tell your plan, and if they are anything less than thrilled, forget em!  I heard a great sentiment in a wedding ceremony last weekend that people should always stand beside a couple and never between them, offering encouragement rather than judgement.

This is a fantastic plan. You guys sound really sensible to me. I think alot of people rush into planning and end up feeling frustrated and disappointed because they tend to wing it, rather than having a step-by-step plan. I wish you luck.
