Congrats on starting grad school! I am not in similar situation, but if it were me, I’d get married next summer, and wait for the honeymoon.

I am enjoying the wait and I think as long as it’s within the year you get married you will still be experiencing the honeymoon bliss 🙂

I don’t recommend going on the trip, planning your wedding, and going on your honeymoon in one summer because that might all be a little stressful to plan on top of going to grad school.

calikat:  Having done grad school, I’d recommend going for the longer engagement and putting it off until after you finish. If anything, it’ll give you more time to save, because grad student stipends are not generous (if you even get one). They’re basically just enough to live off of, and maybe be able to sock away a little, like $50/paycheck or so.
