@Fazza1717:  Congratulations! What a lovely story!

And another UK Bee on the boards! πŸ˜€ My engagement was 2 years when it started as well (although think we just clocked the 18 month mark), I think that’s fairly normal over here.


Would love to see pictures of the ring!

That was a very sweet engagement! Congratulations!

I think 2 years is pretty average… I have had less (one year enagement) but at the same time i have kind of been planning/thinking about marrying my man for ages!!

There is nothing wrong with a 2 year engagement. It would probably be smart for us, too, but I’m not sure I can wait that long. πŸ˜‰

Awe! How super sweet and romantic! Congatulations to you both!!! 


I was engaged for two years before I got to start planning.. we saved for a long time, and finally 8 months ago.. I got to start planning! My wedding is now 6 weeks away! June 26th! Its been a blast! And because we waited, Ive been able to plan the wedding of my dreams without much worry about finances!!! I feel like i looked at flowers and dresses for centurys though! LOL!

But two years is just perfect, by the time youre ready for wedding planning, all the waiting will all be worth it! 

I feel like because we had to wait a bit, we are even more excited! My Fiance isnt a cryer, lol… but I have a feeling there might be a few tears πŸ˜‰

Congrats again! You are going to have a beautiful wedding!!!!

@Fazza1717:  Hello fellow UK bee, congratulations! What an exciting proposal!

We are having an almost 2 year engagement as well – we got engaged in August 2012 and we’re getting married in July 2014. I’m still a student this year so getting married this summer wouldn’t have worked for us. By the time we get married I will have been working for a few months. And then we decided on a garden venue and we were told the flowers were best in late june/early july. So that decided our date! It’s a long time but actually we’ve been so busy with other things (moving in together, starting new jobs and courses) that the first 8 months or so have just flown by. I think you’ll be fine.
