We’re buying a flat. Choosing the place was not difficult, but now that we have to think about furniture, moving (I’m going to his city, 2200km away) and the wedding is in less than a month, I’m glad I’m not working.
Really, guys, how do you do all that? 🙂

Um ….I am drinking a lot of caffine and trying not get fired 🙂

- Wedding: August 2009 - Eastside Catholic Chapel and Lake Union Cafe
Congrats!! It’s a lot of work but it will be worth it. 🙂 Just make sure you have time for you in the midst of the chaos. That’s the one thing I didn’t do and I regret it.

I’m with you. We’ve been engaged since January- looking for a place for over a year now (since March 2008). We put in an offer on a house in June (it’s a “short sale”), and we are on month two of the waiting game. It’s very frustrating. Thankfully we sorta prepared by forcing ourselves to get certain things done early. So we have all our vendors booked, and now we’re working on stationary design. It’s still a lot of stress, and a lot to juggle in general!

- Wedding: September 2009 - City Hall
We got engaged in February, bought our house in May, have our wedding in a few weeks here, and have been full time students and workers the whole time (fall term started last week). UGH, busy.

We got engaged in April, both graduated from residency in June, bought a house & moved cities a few weeks later, bought a business in July and then realized I was already “behind” in wedding planning for next March! Ack! I still feel like I’m playing “catch up.” But now, a few weeks later, things are already looking up. And I’ve still got a little time.
Might as well jump in both feet first!

Congrats! It’s definitely a daunting task you’ve taken on, I hope you’re good at multi-tasking! 🙂
My fiance and I would love to buy a place of our own right now as well, but with us just starting out in the wedding process and paying for everything on our own… it just doesn’t seem feasible (especially since we’d like to stay in SF).
It’s definitely hard since all these things fall into the same timeframe… get married, buy a house, etc etc.

We’re on it!! But the only difference is, that my fiance is going to build the house.
