i found an amazing venue with a 7 month engagement, i’m in a major city.

i will also add that i started planning before the ring too.  we agreed to get married.  the ring was delayed due to a death in the jewelers family.  we didn’t want to wait anymore, but Darling Husband still wanted to do the big proposal.

with shorter engagements you might be limited but you might find a hidden gem or get lucky if you are not set on a particular date.

DH’s friend is an event planner for his company and said a great event needs 4 months to plan.  you have plenty of time.

If my SO said “6 months, start planning now,” I’d feel OK booking the venue as long as I was quite sure of the upcoming engagement. I’d definitely confirm the date with SO before putting down a deposit.
