I would put off buying the house for a few months at least. Rent a place for 6 months and then deal with buying after the wedding and your FI has a job.

@WeddingTime18:  I would just Rent, home ownership is not something you need on your plate right now. Have a wedding you can afford and enjoy settling into a new job. Once your hubby to be is completely on his feet and you are in the swing of things THEN would be a great time to look for a home. Month to month is a great option if you can find it

@WeddingTime18:  I’m sure this depends on your area, but where we live, we couldnt get a mortgage in both of our names unless we were both employed. 

Either way, I agree with PPs that it’s probably best to choose either a house or the wedding. Doing both within a few months of  each other is a TON of money to spend in a year. My husband and I have both had stable employment and even still, we bought a house then waited almost three years before having our wedding in order to get our budget together. 

That said, I do think you could have a tiny, casual wedding soon after buying a house. We actually first considered having a surprise wedding at our housewarming party! Though we ended up decided to wait and have a big wedding later on, it would have been very affordable and super exciting to have the wedding in our new home.
