We had been together 7 years. We met when we were 18 so we weren’t in any rush to get married. We married 13 months after getting engaged.

bridetobespring2018 :  14 months. He was 43 and I was 35, so we both knew what we wanted and were ready. It accidentally took us another 2 years to get married though. We had planned to do it within a year, but I got freaked out about the money and totally froze on planning. After 14 months of being engaged, he ended a conversation in which he was thanking me for helping with some pretty heavy family stuff by saying “Why aren’t we married yet? Call the venue tomorrow and book whatever date they have in the fall. We can go sign paperwork this week.” So I did and we did and we’re married πŸ™‚

A little more than 4 years. I was 29 and he was 33. It would have been sooner but we’ve been long distance during my residency and plan to get married when I graduate next year and didn’t want to be engaged for more than ~18 months.
