I’ve heard brides say that they spent 5+ years planning their wedding while I also know of couples that literally spent a few hours planning theirs. I’m just curious how long it’s taking other bees to plan their wedding…. (Plus who doesn’t love a poll?).

We have been planning since February and I was proposed to at the end of August 🙂 We’re shooting for a September 2014 wedding, so I guess that’s about 20 months 🙂

@renwoman: Start to finish, I will have been engaged 18 months when I get married. I only started planning after I got engaged.

I was engaged for about 11 months. The first month or two, I planned a lot. Then there really wasn’t anything to do, so I just looked on weddingbee 🙂 The two months before the wedding got busy again.

We had an eight month engagement, but I only seriously planned for 2 months in the beginning.

We got engaged in August, moved up our date in November, and got married in May!
So 5.5 months of actual planning.

- Wedding: September 2013 - Pavilion at Rocky Neck State Park
It was about 11 months away when we booked the venue/date. We were fortunate enough there was a date available because they were starting to book into 2014 when we booked the wedding.

We got engaged last month and will be getting married in February – so 5 months total, and we only started planning after getting engaged. We’re 80% of the way done with planning but I think that’s less the norm and has more to do with the fact that I’m a wedding planner.

Actively planning it will total about 17 months. 🙂 Of course though, who hasn’t just sat there and day dreamed.

I think we booked the venue back in August and we’re marrying in December. Tiny wedding so not much to plan thankfully.

@renwoman: 5 month engagement over here! woo-hoo! Planning a really big celebration with about 300 people in Chicago and planned most of it in the first 2 months, as in looked for and found my dress within FOUR days of being engaged and put the deposit on it a week after, at the same time we booked our venue
Its been stressful but honestly I recommend it to all brides-to-be! Pack the stress into a small time frame, its’ totally manageable!
—and we got all the vendors / venues we really wanted so no sacrificing was made!
