Waiting bee here and Im just curious how long was the time between your engagement and your wedding.
As for me, my SO and I have a timeline on exactly when we want to get married. We both agreed (if everything works out right) to get married on May 7th, 2016, which we would be together for exactly 5 years on that day.
I have an assumption that the earliest my SO will propose is on our three year dating anniversay (May 7th, 2014) or somewhere around that time. So that would put us at being engaged for two years or a little less.
How long were you engaged?

You should probably add a poll to make this easier on you 🙂
One year for DH and me

Just under two months. We decided to elope, for a number of reasons (which disappointed some). It was a good decision for us. But we were together nearly 4 years before we married.
If we had invited other people I think we would have gotten married in Santa Barbara, and the courtesy to other people and planning might have caused our enagement to be a bit longer. Probably 8-10 months.

We were engaged October, married in December of the same year. So, one full month and some change.

SO said I should expect a proposal between January and February so either 3/4 months before we marry. We’ve had this planned out forever.

1 year and 1 day 🙂 I don’t think I could have handled a longer engagement.
Edit: I didn;t know about long engagements until I joined the hive. The longest engagement in our group was 1 year and 2 days and the shortest was 3 months.
