So me and FI got engaged last year but always had the plan that we were going to wait until I finished nursing school and then get married in 2017.
We recently found our wedding venue (Yay!) and decided early on we want to do it on our 5th anniversary in june, unfortunately they don't do any weddings in that week. It's upsetting but it's out of our control and nothing we can do about it so we're moving on and finding a new date.
Our issue is I still want 2017 but we're also planning on buying a house next year and FMIL keeps saying it's a blessing in disguise so that we can buy a house next year and marry the year after and FI is now really worried about money and wants to push the wedding back. I understand that this is going to be expensive but we've already been saving for over a year and have our initial wedding budget already saved and have a decent start in our house fund so we're really fortunate in that aspect.
I'm just frustrated as I don't really want to be engaged for over 3 years and don't really see why we need to be but I do understand FI's view and his family are very vocal in that they think we should wait till 2018. How did you all come to a decision about what Date/ year you and FI chose? Thank you!
