I agree with everyone else, I would get married before.

My youngest sister had a very small, but beautiful ceremony. They invited immidate family only which included siblings and parents. They reserved a private room at a small historic resteraunt. A justice of the peace performed the ceremony before lunch was served. It was very intimate and very classy. We all enjoyed a delicious lunch, and a small wedding cake for dessert. A few months after their wedding when the weather warmed up, they had a fun large bbq party at a park where they invited all their friends, and extended family.

It was more a little example of the complications of being a family after marriage. There is lots of paperwork in NYS when you have a baby -- forms for social security, forms for the official certificate of birth, forms for insurance, forms......
If you do it all now, your paperwork doesn't have to be changed to update baby's new last name, legal father...... It gives you those things from the outset. Lots of doctors here won't let/sugget against a baby have the father's last name unless there is a marriage.

i agree with DCnanny. my situation was a bit different because i actually live over-seas, but getting married before the baby made getting documents for said baby sooooo much easier (passport, report of birth abroad, ect.) even if it was so the baby had the same last name as his parents.

DH and I got pregnant and then got married... We had a VERY small church wedding with probably less than 20 guests and we wanted to have something bigger later... BUT we never had the "something bigger" bc of family issues on my side. I'm hoping maybe for our 10th anniversary we can remedy that situation!

That's what we did, obviously it's up to you and your fiance, but I'd say go for it! Get married now and have a bigger thing later!
