Grrr that sounds so frustrating. I would just get on the phone and get the ball rolling when you are both home. I would suggest getting all your paperwork together now 2 years of tax returns w-2s paystubs and bank statements together now. They will ask for so much info and when you think you’re done they come back for more. Good luck and give him a little kick in the right direction

I would start doing some of the other stuff, you can at least start meeting with a realtor.  Maybe that will light a fire under him knowing you are going to start looking at houses!

As excited as you are, and as much as he says he wants to do, I think you can talk to him about it, but should not push him.  Are you guys renting now??  Is there a true deadline to buying a house before a lease is up or in time for the wedding?  Is he truely ready, or just saying that he wants it right now.  As the person that held the downpayment when my husband and I bought, I think I would have been pretty upset at him if he tried to push me along the process to buy if I were not 100% gung ho about it and ready.  It’s a big move and a lot of money to shell out.
