Hang in there. Being a teacher myself I know how hard it is looking for a job. I was worried too, but actually landed an 8th grade teaching position just last week! Yay! Right on time, wedding is in April!

You’re lucky you have such a supportive FIL family!

We were in a similar situation. We pushed our date up because I had a lot of medical problems and we realized that saving up for me to finish school and start working was actually counterintuitive when we would be saving money by getting married and putting me on DH’s medical insurance. So we just had a very small wedding. We did pay for everything ourselves, but we had a lot of people help out with things (donated food, time, and little things). I found out that I felt a lot better about it when I at least had another option and was able to look at some of the things as wedding gifts (i.e. I had planned on hitting the flower market and DIY’ing flowers, but some family friends went in together and bought bouquets/bouts/corsages for us. Good luck with the job hunt, and just focus on keepings things small and what you can afford.

@cupcakesxoxo:  My FI was out of a job for 7 months… RIGHT after he proposed! It was terrible, but you have to just stick with it. I’m a teacher, too, so congrats on picking an amazing field!!! 🙂 Maybe for now you can get a second job, something small? That way you can contribute a little bit more while you wait for your career to start? 

 

Also, it is amazing that your fiance’s family wants to help, mine doesn’t!!!! I know what you mean about not wanting anyone to make decisions for you. I would keep yourself grounded, as you are, and continue on thinking “fabulous but lower budget.” You have time to find a job and you’re on the right track!

 

HeMadeMeWantTo: Congrats on the job!!! I taught 8th grade for 3 years!
