    I was engaged for about 11 months. The first month or two, I planned a lot. Then there really wasn’t anything to do, so I just looked on weddingbee ๐Ÿ™‚ The two months before the wedding got busy again.

    • Wedding: September 2013 - Pavilion at Rocky Neck State Park

    It was about 11 months away when we booked the venue/date. We were fortunate enough there was a date available because they were starting to book into 2014 when we booked the wedding.

    • Wedding: February 2014

    We got engaged last month and will be getting married in February – so 5 months total, and we only started planning after getting engaged. We’re 80% of the way done with planning but I think that’s less the norm and has more to do with the fact that I’m a wedding planner.

    • Wedding: October 2013

    @renwoman:  5 month engagement over here! woo-hoo! Planning a really big celebration with about 300 people in Chicago and planned most of it in the first 2 months, as in looked for and found my dress within FOUR days of being engaged and put the deposit on it a week after, at the same time we booked our venue

    Its been stressful but honestly I recommend it to all brides-to-be! Pack the stress into a small time frame, its’  totally manageable! 

    —and we got all the vendors / venues we really wanted so no sacrificing was made!
