    I would choose a time that is better for you. They sound about equal for your Fiance

     

    How involved will your Fiance be with the planning and arranging things? If he wants to be very involved it might be worth waiting. Maybe even later than fall 2015.

    • Wedding: November 2013 - St. Augustine Beach, FL

    Getting married while I was in school was definitely less stressful because it took me months of applying and interviewing to get a job.  I would have been miserable trying to find a job and planning a wedding; even though it’s “free” time, I wasn’t going to school and I wasn’t getting paid so I was really stressed out about how to get a job and pay the bills.

    Do you have money? To me school and work hardly came conflicted. But if the money wasn’t there (which for us, it was) it will be far more difficult.

    • Wedding: May 2014

    I voted for Spring 2015. Interviewing for jobs seems a lot more stressful than school. Also, he may have to take some time off for the wedding. It seems easier to do this during school (think school breaks, potentially flexible class schedules) than when you start a new job.

    I am a little biased though. I am getting married in May 2014 and then starting graduate school in the fall. My Fiance will not graduate until May 2017 due to financial issues. I’m not waiting that long! Thankfully my Fiance has a good job.

    • Wedding: December 2013

    I’m in nursing school and we’re getting married in December while I’m on winter break. I graduate two months after we get married. It works for us because after I’m done with school I need to focus on studying for my board exam, applying for jobs and helping my bestfriend who’ll be getting married 6 months after me.

    @laciekate:  I’m in school and we are getting married in November. The plan is to take out honeymoon over Christmas break, so a month later. Life is busy, don’t put your plans on hold.

    • Wedding: July 2013

    I’m getting married while at university because it’s actually the least stressful time! I have a break in July when I know I have no work to do and nothing to prepare for my teaching placements (I’m studying primary teaching). However, if I waited until I’m finished my degree (this November), I’d be in the middle of applying for jobs, hopefully getting a job, planning, setting up my classroom etc – talk about hectic! And I really didn’t want to put it off until 2014 or later. I think if you can manage financially you should be fine to do it while one or both of you is at uni.
