So, FI and I fell in love with this venue in North Florida, where we're currently living. We booked it and booked our photographer, along with some other things. Now, his work wants him to relocate to Orlando in April. The wedding is in September. We don't want to move the wedding venue, because 1) We'd lose our $200 deposit. 2) We wouldn't find the perfect venue anywhere else. This was one of those instant "you-know-it's-right" moments.
Now, I haven't had a job in 4 months. My apartment complex that we are currently living in has asked me to "volunteer" to show apartments at promotional events lately. In reality, the manager wanted to see how well I'd do, because she had heard that I was looking for a job. Turns out, she wants to bring me on as a part-timer, but she's heard that we may be moving. The part-time leasing agent position would start as soon as she found out we were staying in North FL and would evolve into a full-time position. They even told us that FI could have a job as a maintenance/pool worker (full time). This would cut our rent in half!!
But FI still wants to move to Orlando. Where we will be forced to live in the rich side of town, where we'd be paying MORE than what we're paying now for rent & utilities. I'm not even guaranteed a job there yet.
I think we should stay in North FL until after the wedding so that we can afford the wedding. We'd save so much staying here, and we'd both be making extra income.
So, now I want to see other people's opinions. Do you think we should move to Orlando or stay in North Florida until after the wedding?
