My personal opinion would be to wait until you’ve seen the Dr.  Of course, I’m thinking all will be great when you go it, but it’s better to be 100% sure before you start spreading the news.

Could you still give a heads up to your families that you’re looking to wed on New Year’s Day?  Maybe mention that you love the idea of starting the new year as a married couple and how it’s also a great opportunity to get the families together around the holidays.  Then, after the Dr. appt., share the pregnancy news?

Ps.  CONGRATULATIONS!!! What exciting news!!! 2013 will be a fabulous year for you both!!

If you want to do a New Year’s wedding, I would let your guests know now, ASAP, and just don’t mention anything about being pregnant yet. You haven’t officially announced the wedding date yet, so it’s not like you’re changing the date and need to explain anything. You can announce the pregnancy (congrats!!) once it’s further along & things look ok according to the doctor.

Maybe start asking them now if they want to do a NYE party?  And then after the doctor visit, when everything looks good (knock on wood), tell them that oh yeah, it’s our wedding!

Congrats!!!

After you confirm with the good news, may be you can do a small wedding for now with close families and friends just for now. After you had the baby, then you can have a big wedding..So you can celebrate for both things. Thats what i did, we had a small ceremony and now my kids are already 5 and 3, we still havnt had a real big wedding..Since the weddings are so expensive, we are having 2nd thoughts..But i still want to have a dream wedding tho.
