Erm I haven’t read through all the comments but I’m guessing we have the longest engagement in terms of days. 

He proposed on Dec 31st, 2011 – we’re getting married May 8th, 2015. That’s 1223 days bees. 

We’ve got 381 days to go. 

A lot has happened in that time. We’ve moved, my Fiance went back to school, we’re both seeking out different jobs and budgeting better. We had a venue, photographer and deposits down for a Jan 26, 2013 wedding but about 5 months out had to cancel it because my parents offered to pay for majority of the wedding and my mom split on my dad leaving him with a big alimony bill and our wedding which he couldn’t afford any longer. We also couldn’t afford to pay what was owed and our venue wasn’t able to help us out by cutting things down or letting us cut the guest list.  .

We took about 6 months off of wedding planning after that happened. To get my head wrapped around my parents’ separation and to try to save money and budget for a wedding. 

Then we went back to the drawing board, priced out different local options, and started thinking about how the two of us could afford a wedding, and came back to our original plan which was a destination wedding somewhere warm. So that’s what we are doing! We wanted to have it in 2014, but by the time we got our acts together, we needed to let our families/friends save up for closer to a year, so we pushed it a bit more. And found better pricing for our resort in May of 2015.

I commented on this thread 7 months ago with 388 days to go. Now its down to 192 days! In total we are having a 599 day engagement and have been dating for 2628 days. I often joke to Fiance about how long he has made me wait but after scrolling through this thread, I have nothing to complain about!

We have been engaged since last August, and we have 348 days until our wedding! My cousin got engaged around the same time as us, and her wedding is in 3 weeks and they seem a little stressed and rushed about it, so I’m glad we have a lot of time to figure everything out.
