What I didn't know was he was working on purchasing my engagement ring around the time of the settlements - it was a custom ring that took several months. We got engaged in Sept '08. I was so glad we did not do everything at once.
But, as indicated, it is a very personal decision - you have to decide what you and your FI can handle - emotionally, mentally, physically and financially.

We actually closed on our house (it's a new build, so won't be ready until right after the wedding next year) the same week as we booked our wedding trip... talk about STRESS!
I was trying to fax papers here and there while trying to get people to RSVP and put down their deposits at the same time.
I even had a little breakdown one day as I was driving to the sales office to give them our down payment cheques...
Since we have 8 months to save, the closing costs and wedding costs - it's going to be a TIGHT year financially... but you gotta do what you gotta do!
All the best to you!

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?
