My lease is up on April 29. 2013. My wedding is on April 27, 2013. My Fiance doesn’t want to move before the wedding because he doesn’t want to have to go through all the moving and having to go through things before the wedding. We have a lot of wedding stuff here at our house. I don’t want to move after the wedding because it’s going to be a lot. I want to be able to enjoy being married. If we dong move in Aril and wait until May we would have to pay an extra $100 for a month to month plus pay rent at the new place we are moving. I don’t want to have to pay out more than what we should have to.
So please let me know, when would you move?

Try to find a place April 1st. I would much rather take a weekend at that time to move everything you have, so that way when you get gifts at the wedding you don’t have to store them and then move them all over too. Plus then you can go home or off to your honeymoon and come back and be mostly settled! You have all of April to get things unpacked!

My sister was in a similar situation and she moved like the beginning of April/end of March. If you don’t mind living together a bit before being married, that could be an option for you! You could always move your stuff there except your bed and some clothes and then continue to sleep at your place. After the wedding, you’d just have to move your bed and clothes!

How bad do you really want to get out if your current apartment? It doesn’t sound like you’d be locked in for a year like most places around me are like, so give it a couple of months. My husband was here in this apartment before me. His lease was up in May. He wasn’t going to move into another apartment unless I did so too, but I wanted to stay home until I was married. So I just moved in here but with one condition… That we are out next May.
Do what will make you happy. An extra $100 bucks isn’t too bad.

Just move before. So much easier.

I’d move before. You can pay people to pack or move you. Maybe ask for a three month lease instead of a full renew?

I would move after the wedding. Moving is exhausting and so are weddings. I would focus on last minute wedding things, then after the wedding you can look for a new place together, perhaps for the first week of June? A few extra dollars to save the stress would be fine by me!
One month extra won’t hurt, and it will give you something to focus on as a project. I know some ladies get wedding withdraw or a bit or post wedding blues after all teh excitement, so moving into a new place would be a good cure for that!
