Help! I need some insight and perspective because I am having a HUGE amount of difficulty figuring out a wedding date/timeline.
My FI became engaged in late May. At first we decided on a July 2012 wedding b/c I am graduating in December with my masters in education (aka I am student teaching AND working until then)and I felt it would be too stressful to try and do the nitty gritty of wedding planning in ~6months (Dec-July) since in the fall I will be 'working' 7am-9pm, M-F.
However, I got a little excited (more than i ever thought I would!) about wedding planning and in the 2 months since the engagement, we have the venue, menu, caterer and colors all picked and I have already been dress shopping and have a good idea of what I want. FI and several close friends/family think we should just go for next July instead of waiting.
I thought about it and the more I think I wonder if there will ever really be a 'stress-free/less stressful' time in my life because after this I will need to job search and then I will start teaching which means getting together my curriculum etc.
Any thoughts? I need some un-biased opinions! Thanks!
