Ladies, we’re super old school and have waited to move in together until the wedding. Totally the right decision for us, but that said – can we say stressful! I’m planning a wedding and we’re trying to find a place. Totally time consuming. On top of it, we’re getting some pressure from the parentals not to move in at all before the wedding …. and here I thought we were doing good waiting until one month before. There is no way I can move in the weeks before the wedding, and I sure don’t want that hanging over my head during the honeymood. Advice? What did you do?

Is there anyway you can move a couple weeks ahead of time and stay with family until your wedding? That’s a tough one, at least for me, we moved in together shortly after we were engaged.

Good advice. I think we’re shooting to move my stuff in July 15 and then I’ll bunk up with various friends for the next month. Just so random to think that during the month before the wedding when I’m most stressed I am going to be living out of a suitcase!

I think moving things in ahead and staying with family or friends is a good idea. But have you talked with your family about your concerns? Do they understand where you are coming from? I think your statement that living apart until marriage was what you two wanted, but moving in a bit before would help keep you sane. You know your family, so I can’t say they would budge but you might want to explain this to them.
