I would buy the house. Cut back on the wedding. I would probably have something really informal to celebrate the union. I think at times we often loose sight of the actual event that is happening and get caught up in the billion dollar wedding industry. Just my opinion. Best luck on your decision.

Congrats! i think going for the house is definitely the way to go, especially since it sounds like it is exactly what you are looking for.  maybe you can cut the wedding to just family and very close friends, and then throw an informal bbq or gathering at your new house with your other friends!

I’m a bit late on this board, but I say kudos to you for realizing that a future home is more important than a one day party.  Just as a side note, you may want to also inquire about the closing costs (ie. transfer taxes, down payment requirements) and banks these days if your credit is good, would be willing to provide you with a second mortgage that may make your life a bit easier as far as the wedding is concerned.  But like all the other readers, you and your fiance know what is best for you both and what is affordable, so please don’t overextend yourself….i assure you though, a wedding and first home is possible together!  Best of luck!

I am so glad you are buying a house!! We cut our original number from 150 to 60 so some day sooner than later we can buy our dream home, I mean, dream townhome, I mean, a condo.

That said, people just love a reason to party- so family and friends have now offered to throw us a party in LA and Houston for all the folks we can’t invite to the big event!! Which is so wonderful. And to top it off, I now am super excited for our small intimate wedding, which I think is way more romantic!

Good luck!

You definitely made the right decision, you can even have the wedding reception AT YOUR NEW HOUSE.  It sounds huge and would be great housewarming/wedding =)
