My engagement was 5.5 months, which is pretty short, especially since we pulled off a full traditional wedding. We have been together 11 years, so there was no wasting time for me! I had a date in mind, and it landed on a weekend this year, and was available at my top choice venue, so we went with it!

thefuturemrswindowcleaner:  we had a 22 month engagement. We needed to save money for not just a wedding but a place to live. But, even if we had the money, I think I would want at least a 1 year engagement. If it was only a few months or weeks, I would feel rushed.

I knew someone who had a 3 month engagement.

6 months, for us… seems really long though I know it’s pretty short. We’re just doing a JOP wedding alone and then two small receptions in different states so not too much planning involved. I would’ve done it earlier, but I wanted to give my family time to let it soak in.
