Hi there and welcome to the bee!

There are a TON of bees here who plan a wedding while going to school! I am not one of them, but wanted to let you know that it can certainly be done!

Sorry I can’t give you much more advice (I’ll leave that up to the experienced school/wedding planning bees) but just wanted to say welcome!

Hello 🙂

I don’t think it’s too difficult to plan it either way. I am in both school and working full time and planning the wedding. Granted, it will be a lot of work if you plan to do most things DIY and on a budget. As long as you give yourselves plenty of time any situation you have with work or school will be able to be worked around. If she has a light course load and just classes I think it might be the perefct time for her to plan!

Good luck with your proposal!

I would say, go ahead and propose now.  Discuss the timing of the wedding with her after you propose and I’m sure she’ll let you know whether it’s something she’d like to tackle while she’s in school or wait till she’s working.  I think the answer to the question probably varies widely by person and the most important opinion is your girlfriend’s.  Good luck!

Definitely propose now! Let her choose when the wedding is. I think that a big factor is who is paying. If you and she plan to pay for it, it’d probably be easier after she’s been working for a year so you have more money. If you’re in a situation where parents are going to pay then it probably doesn’t matter, or would be slightly easier to plan while she is in school because you could plan around her breaks and you wouldn’t both have to worry about getting time off work for a honeymoon. 

Either way, congrats in advance!

I think you’re better off proposing now and then you can decide when to plan the wedding together.. you can do it quicky (summer 2011) if she prefers to plan in school.. or any other time (fall 2012!) if she wants to plan when she’s working. Engagement doesn’t necessarily determine wedding date.. you guys do! good luck!

I deffinately think you should propose now, you don’t want her to turn into an evil waiting monster. lol. I have a few friends who have planned their wedding while going to school and they turned out absolutely beautiful.

Congratulations and best of luck!!!

@Mrs.LetsGoPens: LOL Seriously!

After you propose, sit down and figure out finances. After you do that then figure out a schedule month to month leading up to the wedding. Like say you want a 2012 wedding and you want to start planning in Jan. Make yourself a list of tasks to finish. That way it doesn’t seem like you have to do everything all at once.
