I personally think it will add a lot of stress. Fi and I will be working. On our mastera and doctorates respectively and we were talking today about pushing ours BACK because of our course loads and other requirements ( internships and practicicums etc).  Part of the reason we have such a long engageMent is to plan too, a lot of places book up a year to a year in a hal. In advance.  We also want to save up money for a house ๐Ÿ™‚ 

In the end it up to you, bit weddings and classes are stressful enough. Put them together even more so. On a limited time frame? Pass me the xanex please. ๐Ÿ™‚

So I’m graduating in 2 weeks and getting married in 3 months. This semester I took a bunch of joke classes like yoga and guitar, but it was STILL really stressful with school. While it is totally do-able, it can also be very time-consuming and you might end up sacrificing time away from both your studies and your wedding planning… Just a warning that it can be difficult. However, I have been planning a wedding while in school – so I’m not trying to convince you that it is a bad idea, just give you a fair heads up! I decided to plan the wedding for right after we both graduated because we knew we were moving away together, and wanted to get married before that. The only regret I have is that I am planning a wedding away at school so it is harder to coordinate with friends and family when I need help planning things. I also am not doing nearly as many DIYs and personal touches as most of the bees I see posting on here – I just don’t have the time!

Whatever you decide, I wish you and your SO the best of luck and happy wedding and marriage!!

  • Wedding: July 2013

Hello! My fiancé got engaged yesterday so we’ve only talked a little bit, but since I’m still in school and a college athlete, we’re thinking we’re going to wait until June 2014 to get married. We figured we’d be able to save the majority of the costs by then so we wouldn’t have to ask our parents for so much. Plus, by then I would only have a semester of student teaching left so I could go back towards home for that (I go to school six hours away – he lives here with me.) It’s just a timing thing for us. But I think you could go ahead and move the wedding date up, just be prepared to set aside time for it in between studying and possibly working – otherwise I think you’ll get super stressed. I don’t know if this applies to you or not, but we decided to stay away from May because of all the college and high school graduations, but that’s unique to each family. Good luck!!

  • Wedding: September 2011

My Darling Husband and I had 7 months to plan our wedding – WITH me working on my Masters (more specifically, writing my thesis).  I completed my semster part way through July and we got married on June 3. 

The 7 months was honestly plenty of time for us!  We would’ve done less, but it wasn’t really an option with my schooling.  

I had friends who got engaged on NYE and got married in May — 5.5 months.  And another couple who got engaged in April and married in September — 5 months.  However, in those situations, they weren’t in school ๐Ÿ™‚

With my school, we needed some extra time… But it honestly wasn’t bad at all! Busy at times, for sure – But very doable!
