buy house and plan wedding?
Posted 07 August 2009 - 01:52 AM
i just wanted to know if anyone planned their wedding AND bought a house in the same time frame. Our wedding is next year, but we've been looking at houses. We found one, and it's great.
My fiance says we should push the wedding back and focus on the house. I say we should just continue with wedding, but on a smaller scale.
What should be do?
My fiance is concerned because we need to put down a deposit on the resort and provide $ for a down payment on the house in the same time frame. The house doesn't need a lot of work, but we do want to work on small cosmetic things, one at a time.
Are we taking on too much? Should we wait another year to get married?

We just bought a house in November 2008, and although I LOVE it. I kinda wish we would've rented a little longer to save up more money.
Keep us updated on what you two decide

Our wedding was basically already paid for (the trip part anyway) & we didn't need a down payment for the house (first time home owners incentives, etc!) so our situations aren't exactly the same. But, with the new home purchase & the other weddding costs we didn't really have the money to do "fixer up" kind of things. But now that we've got a bit more cash flow we are starting to do them now. Our house was livable & we figured the painting & cosmetic stuff could wait. We were very anxious to be in our own home & I wasn't putting off the wedding!!!
Like flbluiiis said above, this is a very personal decision so do what's best for you. Good Luck!!!

I agree with the other posts....If you can afford to do both, then GO FOR IT! If not, there's no harm in waiting.

This year has been a hard one financially... but we have managed and I'm glad we did! We plan on having our AHR here at the house too.
Go with what you feel you can handle,it will all work out!
