We got engaged Memorial Day weekend. It does feel like we’ve been engaged longer than that though August feels like it’s going very slowly. The engagement is going swimmingly though :).

My FI and I got engaged last September (2013) and I have NO idea where the first 10 months went – they FLEW by! – but these last two months are seeming to go by a little slower – still, as I look at the calendar and realize we are only 44 days away my jaw drops! I think an engagement any longer than a year would feel to long.

My perception changes every 20 minutes! Sometimes I feel like I am ahead of the game and have everything together. Other moments I want to break down because I cant imagine how I can possibly get everything done. Suddenly I will realize there was a detail I hadn’t even considered and I get a bit freaked out. 

BTW, I am not getting married until Sept next year, so you may be thinking- how could you possibly feel that you wont get it all done in time? BUT I will be in Germany teaching for 10 months right before the wedding. I’m sure once I get there my perception of how quickly the engagement is passing will change. 

 

I’m interested to see other responses!

FAST! We got engaged May 2013 and our wedding is in 37 days! I can’t believe how fast the time has passed. It feels like we just got engaged!

We got engaged in January, and it’s going reasonably slowly. Everything is pretty well planned except for our clothes, so now it’s just a waiting (and saving) game. I think the next 9 months will go faster though.

Fast! We got engaged on Christmas 2013 and our wedding is 3-14-15. I figured 15 months would take forever but no!! We’re 7 months away now it’s crazy!

  • Wedding: November 2015

sam-ee:  I got engaged in June and it seems to be moving along at just a perfect rate. I realize I still have a long road ahead of me, but I want to enjoy it and take my time. We have the venue booked but that is all so far for our November 1st 2015 wedding!

sam-ee:  hahah same here!! I’m sure it has a lot to do with nerves and just wanting everything to go perfect. It’s such a special day, how could you not get a little freked out every once in a while!?!?
