    You are still so young! Why not buy the house and have a long engagement – that way you can have your cake and eat it too? Otherwise, I say buy the house and have a small, simple wedding and plan on having a 5-year anniversary party where you can pull out all the stops and invite the whole fam.

    I think you should do both.  First increase you wedding budget to 15 or 20K.  Set your guest list to 150-175 attending and look for venues outside of you area since closer ones are all so expensive.  Smaller cities have less expensive options for a great weding.  

    – keep your registry small and practical.  You will receive several cash gifts.  Everyone I spoke with received half to all of what they paid for the wedding in cash gifts.

    – Cut photography cost.  Looking back I really only want a photographer for our first look and ceremony.  The reception pictures at weddings I could pass on. And the video will capture the reception better anyway.

    – keep the wedding simple and do not over think it or waste money on things that will be thrown away

    – You may have to postpone buying a home for a year or tow but you will get everything you want if you are patient
