My FI and I will be having a 14 month long engagement. It’s only been a little over two months and I’m seriously already getting antsy! We’re both just ready and so excited to be married. In addition to that I don’t know how I’m going to handle all this planning stuff for another year. It might drive me nuts. We have discussed the idea of getting married at the courthouse with just the two of us but still having the formal wedding as planned. Has anyone else done this or is anyone else considering this? For those of you that had engagements that were a year or longer, did it seem too long or did it go by quickly?

We were engaged for 22 months. It seemed like a long time but it also went by really quickly! Especially towards the end. It felt like one day it was 100 days, and the next it was 5!

We have about one year down and one to go. I’m a reeeeaaaally antsy bride-to-be. I couldn’t wait to get engaged and I never thought in a million gazillion years that when we finally got engaged we would make it a long one. However…the first year went by really fast. One year seems like forever to go but I have a feeling that as things start coming together its all going to fly by. Hang in there!

@spicyshimmer: When we get married this month it will have been 1.5 years of being engaged. It goes fast and slow at the same time if that makes sense. But in my case it’s been more slow than fast because it really didn’t start speeding up considerably until April of this year. I don’t recommend long engagements to people now that I have been through one, but everyone is different. I stupidly let my mom and others influence me that it takes sooo long to plan a wedding, but with all our flip flopping of plans we have only been planning since March/April 2013! Apparently it doesn’t take as long as everyone claims lol.

It probably sounds super cliche but time will fly! When we got engaged all I could think about was the long 14 month wait and that the wedding would never come. Now I’m less than a week out and I don’t know where all the time went! However, it will feel great to be done with planning. Even when I don’t have much to do I feel overwhelmed. I can’t wait to be done planning!!

I’m in the same boat. I was engaged in December of last year and all I keep thinking about right now is how long a year is!
But I also look back and I’ve already been engaged for 6 months!!! Time does fly and surely if 6 months go by this fast, then the rest will be just as fast. Which reminds me I better get moving on the wedding planning! 🙂

Hang in there the time will fly! Enjoy being engaged it so much fun. I also had a 13 month engagement which ended up being perfect timing for budget reasons and I was able to work on 1 project at a time without ever feeling rushed or stressed. The big day will be here in 4 months!!
