As a nearly 29-year-old in law school planning a wedding, I can sympathize… but I think if you truly, truly want to get married sooner, you should get married sooner… without the “very nice ring” and a big wedding, if those are what are stopping you. Nicer rings can be purchased later, and I definitely wouldn’t postpone my marriage just to have a wedding. Life always gets “in the way” of things like weddings and babies and houses… the timing is never going to be right, but you have to decide if you want to do it, and then do it!

Good luck!

I agree with Spaniel – I am doing a PhD and so we are living on a single income family and we decided that we didn’t want to wait any longer! I have a very nice reasonably priced ring that I love and we are having a small intimate wedding.

You have to decide what is important to you and if you want it to be sooner you will have to make sacrifices in order to do it – but it can be done!

Good Luck!

I also totally agree with Spaniel! I will be a 29-year-old bride even though I remember discussing with friends how I thought we’d be married by 25-26 (and we really both knew we were in this long-term around age 24).  I totally empathize with your feelings re: being legally legitimized (I cringe a little every time I hear “…oh. I thought you two were already married”).

A lot of people upgrade their e-rings, and vow renewal ceremonies were invented for a reason!

Hope all works out!
