Hey Bees! I’m new here but loving it thus far! I am not yet engaged, but I know it’s coming, as it’s something both myself and Future Fiance have spoken about, we are just waiting on funds and of-course he wants it to be a big surprise, so not at all while i might think it’s coming, lol. We’re both ready for this and can’t wait till it happens, but in the meantime, we’re all level headed and just enjoying the times.
Anyways, I was just wondering, how long were you guys here dating/courting/together before you got engaged, and how long from engagement to marriage??

We were dating just over 2 years, and we will be engaged just over 2 years. So total of just over 4 years of dating/being engaged before we get married.

Together 13 years before we got officially engaged. Wedding is taking place 9 or so months after the official engagement. Yes we are not the norm LOL.

My hubby and I are a little out of the ordinary. He “proposed” just after our 6 month anniversary and got married just before 7 month. We did a courthouse wedding and are in the middle of planning our big wedding for family and friends our anniversary is 10/29 and the wedding is 10/13. 8 mo.- a year+ seems to be the normal engagement time but I have had a few of my friends plan some absolutely gorgeous weddings in 3-6 months. Once you get engaged sit down with your Fiance and think about what season you want to get married and go from there. Just know that if you plan to order a wedding gown it usually takes months to come in. Hence why the usual engagement is 9mo-year.

He proposed a month and a half before our 4 year anniversary and we are getting married on our 5 year anniversary (in a month!). Occasionally I wish I’d worried less about the date and just got married as soon as possible, but we’re nearly there now!

We dated a year and a half before getting engaged and then we were married 6 months later, So, we were married 2 years and a month after we started dating.

My Fiance proposed 4 days after our 3 month anniversary. But we will be dating for 21 months when we get married. My mother is a teacher so we wanted to do an August wedding before she went back to school but this August was too soon so we waited til 2013.

2 years and 6 months. It seems like we have been dating a lot longer since we have lived together most of that time.

Fiance and I were together just shy of 3.5 years when he proposed; we will be getting married about 13 months after the proposal. So, we’ll be getting married after being together 4.5 years.
