Moving out of State after Wedding

Anyone moved or will be moving out of state after their wedding? I’m getting married on December 8th and planning on moving to Florida from New York. I haven’t started job hunting or really looking too deep into places to live. I don’t know how to start! Do I find a job and then look for a place after I get one? What if they want me to start right away and I have nowhere to live?!

    I’m moving to florida after our October wedding but my FH already lives there. He currently has a room mate so we will begin looking for an apartment next month for us.

    I recently moved from GA to OH after getting engaged. I recommend having a job lined up if possible. If not, make sure you're financially stable for at least 3-6 months or if your combine finance isn't strong yet.

    Starting in a new place, it's a struggle and you'll have good and bad days. I recommend looking for a place to live before moving. With my current apartment, they go off what your credit score is and how much you are currently making even if you're not living in that state yet. As for when to start, ASAP. You'll want to go visit the area(s) and see how it is (online doesn't do justice).

    Most jobs are understanding that you're making a life change/move. They'll understand if you need a week or so to readjust before starting a new job.

    I wish you the best of luck!

    I would look for a job first and then a place to live. Apartments will want proof of income and you’ll want to pick a place that’s a reasonable driving distance from your job.

    This is a similar issue we are facing right now. FH and I want to move to North Carolina after the wedding, and were struggling with planning the honeymoon around that. We don’t have a place down there yet, but I will probably transfer to another store down there and he may be able to do the same. We don’t know if we want to go on a honeymoon for two weeks and come home and then move, or move go on honeymoon and have a fresh start. It gives me tremendous anxiety just thinking about it. You’re not alone girl! Best of luck

    I'd suggest moving first, and going on your honeymoon maybe three weeks or a month later. Who would want to come home from a honeymoon and have to move or unpack boxes? You'll need another vacation after that!
