our is a little less than two years. it is perfect for us because i’m done with grad school and now we have a full year to really plan. the timing of your engagement is really based on what is best for the two of you.

I’ll be graduating in 2015 and got engaged september of this year. We had originally planned to have an almost 2 year engagement-we were thinking aug 2015 at first, but FI has been really pushing for Dec 2014 lately, so who knows… 🙂

Almost 11 months but probably would have been shorter if he hadn’t proposed in the fall!

@otto2008:  by the time we get married it will be 2.5 years.  We are also waiting until I am done with school.  Its your wedding and you don’t have to justify it to anyone else of why you’re waiting.  Do what is right for you

@otto2008:  We got engaged last month and won’t be getting married for about 2 years. My older sister is getting married next fall and with FI’s job being ridiculously busy between January and May (thanks Tax Season) it just wasn’t feasible to try and plan anything sooner.

It works out for the best though. We don’t have to rush with the planning and we will have more of a financial cushion when the wedding actually gets here.
