    9 months! We’ll be ready to get married by then too — until then i’m enjoying using the term “fiance” as long as I can

    @Rosie, I think most people are going to be more than a year so maybe include more options over 1 year like 1.5, 2, 2.5, 3?

    I wanted at least 1 year and ended up with 13 months.  The only definite thing is that we wanted to get married on NYE and now I wish we would have just eloped the month after we got engaged.

    A couple days short of 13 months. It’s a good timeline, and works well with school (I’m a teacher0>

    19 mos…

    I don’t think I could have done a very short engagement…  With grad school taking up my days and only having nights to work on the wedding, almost 2 yrs is good… esp considering we were only dating for ~2 mo before he proposed (knew each other for 13 yrs).

    @MissAsB  It’s not that long.  Ours would have been close to 3 years for me to plan properly if we weren’t worried about the health of our grandparents keeping them from seeing the wedding.  I’ve had friends who were engaged for over 4 yrs as they went through school.
