Wedding and moving country

Not only are me and my fiancé getting married in 102 days, we’re also moving to Australia at the same time! The stress is causing fights. Do any couples who have done something like this have any tips?

Wow. Nope not done anything like this but possibly you could focus your time and have some down time.
Focus one night or a couple of hours on wedding. Then next night on moving. Then have a night or two break. You don't need to spend money but just enjoy each others time stress free.

Don't be hard on yourselves or each other you are doing the two most stressful things in life at the same time!
Congratulations and good luck z

Wow I’m so envious, I’d love to move to Australia and we are hoping to get married but need to save up!! Good luck for the future! X

Colette Harris, could you help?

Can't offer lived experience but try & remember you're a team working towards the same goals. Maybe schedule time to deal with each issue & delegate who can deal with certain things individually (after they've been discussed/agreed) to share the load? Also try and get some fun stuff in for the 2 of you! Good luck & congratulations!

I'd just remember the reasons you're doing it, the happiness you would have felt when you first agreed to your plans 😊 xx

We moved to Australia about three weeks after we got engaged (and now we’re planning a wedding back home for this August), so I completely understand the stress! I wish I could offer some wise advice but about all I’ve got is: make loads of lists, start packing earlier than you think you need to, rant to your mum/sister/friends and drink plenty of wine (either with your fiancé or on your own 😂)
If you’ve got any specific Aussie questions feel free to message me!

My fiance has just moved up from London and decided to marry in august of this year and it's a nightmare right now. Date nights help but trust me

Delegate for the wedding details and concentrate on your future. We married in 1970 and migrated 1 week later. Still strong 50 years on. Work hard.

First congratulations to you both. What an amazing experience for you to have. Try to have some quiet time together and take things one step at a time. Yes it's a very stressful thing for you both but just remember your love that brought you together and support each other. Step back when things get stressful and take time out. I'm sure you will be ok and hope everything goes well for you. Have a wonderful time together on lifes journey xx
