Congratulations, girl! I think it’s awesome when someone can have a short engagement and you get to marry your best friend sooner rather than later.  Sometimes I think that waiting longer makes it more stressful than if you just jump into whirlwind planning. 

My engagement itself was about 14 months (got engaged in March 2013 and married finally last weekend). It wasn’t terribly long but not short either. We planned to be engaged for about a year so we weren’t too far off. BUT…even though we were engaged for a little over a year, we didn’t actually set the date until April of this year, for June 21st. I didn’t do any “real” wedding planning until we actually set a date so even though I had been engaged for about a year, I still planned the wedding in two months. We weren’t stressed about a date because our “venue” was our best friends’ house. 

Getting a wedding planned in two months worked better for me because I work faster and better with an immediate deadline in mind. When April had rolled around, I wanted to set a date because I am impatient (I would have married my husband the day he proposed if I could have). So we decided on June, sent out invitations, and had some whirlwind planning but we pulled it off and had an absolutely lovely and beautiful backyard wedding. Wouldn’t change a thing!<br /><br />So congratulations, OP, and enjoy your big day! You will be so excited and you will have a great time. Just remember that any stress you experience is fully SO worth it in the end!
