    @Bunny_the_Bride:  I don’t think this website is oriented towards people with longer engagements. I think longer engagements are more commonly experienced on the Bee than vice versa.

    @Bunny_the_Bride:  I also had a 5 month engagement. I wouldn’t have wanted it to be any longer, and we didn’t even need it to be as long as it was. We just wanted to be married and didn’t see a point in having a long engagement period.

    we will have an exactly one year engagement. i wanted six months, but we couldn’t get the family lined up at that time of year. I wish It could have been shorter, but one eyar was literlaly the first dya that we could get everyone together on a  date that the church would approve.

    @Bunny_the_Bride:  Thank you! We were originally going to get married in November (when I turn 21), but I’ve had health problems and he wants me to be under his insurance as soon as possible to ‘fix’ me up. 😛

    @Bunny_the_Bride:  I think the issue is that lots of venues & vendors book up waaay in advance.  They definitely do here in LA, so this might be regional.  That’s why almost everyone I know has been engaged for 12-15 months.  

    I was engaged for 10 months, but that was so we could save for the wedding.  We just got married at my ex-FIL’s church.

    @Bunny_the_Bride:  Ours will have been a 10 month engagement. I wish we had done a shorter one. We will have lost four (possibly five depending how this week goes) by our wedding date. You don’t know what life will bring, and I wish I could have had those loved ones physically present. 

    Don’t wait if you don’t have to.
