I only ask because if this isn’t going to be your forever home you may want to be a little bit more flexible with the acreage and focus on your must haves for the time being.

I’d say go ahead and set the date if you love a specific month–the house thign will fall itno place when t’s time.

By The Way Congratulations on the upcoming nuptuals and good luck with the house hunting.

I’m not in your exact situation but Fiance and I are house hunting now and our wedding is next spring. His aim is to move into our home prior to our wedding and quite honestly it is freaking me out having to worryabout both simultaneously. Good for you and your man for doing one and then the other. If this is to be your forever home, don’ settle on teh big things you want. You want to feel as though your home is your castle. Good luck!

We are actually doing the opposite. We are living in the home I bought for another year while we get married and get through another busy season at work, then we’ll find a forever home next year.

  • Wedding: November 2016

My fiance and I got engaged in August of last year and we’re getting married in November. We are in escrow for a house at the moment, which is super crazy stressful but it’s going to be worth it. My fiance wanted a “forever” home, and our new house will be amazing but I still see us moving again. (Ugh moving is the worst! And we’ll be doing it around 5 months out from the wedding.) 

We set the date and had been casually looking at houses. I put my foot down and said we either buy with enough time to move and not make me into a bridezilla from stress or we wait until after, but there would be no escrow starting two months before the wedding. I couldn’t imagine trying to move and orchestrate a wedding at the same time. I know my limits! Haha

It’s doable. We found an amazing house in the right area and it just happened to be decent timing. Good luck on your search!! I wish 5 acres was a reality for us, but we live in Los Angeles.

Actually, I think in the LA area, it’s kind of an odd thing to buy a house before marriage now a days. Housing prices are high here and to afford even a decent house in a decent area takes a large down payment. Waiting is totally the norm!

futuremrs1617:  Im in sort of the opposite place. We set a date almost a year ago, for September, and then on a whim decided to buy a house. We’re closing 3.5 months before the wedding. It’s been stressful but totally doable to have both things going on, so I say don’t let the home purchase hinder the wedding. Things always work out, just plan the wedding out far enough that you won’t have an insane timeline! 

Good luck!
