I’m 30, and a student, and was a student while planning a wedding. It’s rough going, so I recommend a planner if you can afford one. It’s definitely a distracting endeavor, but it can be done.

Early 30’s work full time, school full time, cook everyday, and planning a wedding. No children yet (waiting until after marriage). Personally, God is my main source And myeverything. At times I’m so amazed at all I do in a day. It will be well worth it in the end hang in there. You CAN DO IT!

I’m a mid-30s career changer, so I’m in grad school at the moment, working full time and planning the wedding (which is 11 days away, OMG).  It’s tough, I won’t lie, but I got through it by really dividing my time well and structuring my week so that everything had a place.  For example, most of my school work is due on Tuesdays (so I would do no wedding stuff that day), and Wednesday would be my night off with NOTHING scheduled except me/us time – date night, relaxing movie, etc.  I also took advantage of lunch breaks at work to do school work/study if I needed to.  

Just know, it can be done!  Good luck and congrats!!

Not me, but my SO is in his (early) 30’s, working full time and starting the second year of his BS.  I couldn’t be prouder — and envious!!  He’s pretty much going on the government’s dime (GI Bill) while I have 8 years worth of student loan debt staring me in the eye!


While we’re not planning a wedding at the moment, I know my SO is super busy and wasn’t very excited to start school again yesterday.  He’s doing an online program through Penn State, so while he’s not in the classroom, it’s a lot of independent work & motivation.  What I’ve noticed is that he sets aside the same time every week to do school work (around his work schedule).  So, maybe give yourself a schedule to do your work outside of the classroom & stay consistent?
