    6 months and I don’t think I can survive living a normal, healthy and functional life if my engagement was longer than that, since I’ve been crazy A.D.D. with all the wedding planning going on since day 1. But that’s just me and my uncontrollable mental pop-ups of planning ideas 🙂  I really wanna get it over with and move on with my life! Hahaha

    11 months – it was perfect!  we wanted to get married ASAP after we got engaged (had already been together over 7 years…), and with schedules, dates open, etc it was as soon as we could do it.  I thought it was just the right amount of time.

    Over 2 years.  We wanted to be finished with school (we won’t be though, ha!) and wanted to have time to save money.

    3 years, 9 months. Law school got in the way, but health insurance was a bonus (got to stay on parents’!)

    haha wow I’m so surprised by the number of 1+ engagements. We got engaged in September and originally set our date for the next september, it would have been just over a year. but we ended up changing it so now it’ll be nearly 9 months.

    Ours was one week shy of a year.  I thought it was a good amount of time to save up and enjoy the engagement while having enough time to plan.
