Personally, I say finish school first and do not base your decision on a paid internship you might get. If you are in love now, you will be in love when you are finished school and have a career. Money, sex and children are the top 3 arguments leading to divorce in marriage. No one thinks it will happen to them, they will plan a wedding and married while working AND going to school etc etc. Finish school, get your career sorted out and come up with a debt repayment plan THEN start planning your wedding and enjoy it!!!! FI and I are 31 and I just went back to school, so I am not talking out of my ass. You and I have some what similar situations, so for what its worth that is my opinion. Congrats on the engagement!!

  • Wedding: June 2014

I’d just do it sooner. I planned our whole wedding far away while in school and working two jobs, it really wasn’t that bad. I will be attending grad school starting this June until May ’16 but that’s no reason not to get married! We would be in the same situation if we weren’t married so really it’s no different. So time wise, yes it’s possible, just be good with time management. Sure you’ll have more money after you graduate, but it doesn’t cost anymore to be married then not married if you already share expenses etc. If you have to pay for the wedding yourselves and don’t care if it’s extravagent then I see no reason to wait! I’d stick with the summer 15 date personally.
