our engagement time will be 18 months, people said the same thing to us.  People REALLY need to mind their business, they are sssooo nosey!  My answer was, it’s not a shotgun wedding, no need to rush! haha

18 months here… most people in my area are engaged at least 10+ months with over a year being very common.

1 year exactly. i thought i needed that long to plan. i think i really only needed that long to get a good photographer, other than that, it’s been a really long time.

Ours will have been 2.5 years. We got that all the time. I always said we had other things on our plate (new baby, first house). People really should keep their comments to them selves sometimes.

About 2 1/2 years, mostly because a) we want to graduate from college first and b) we want to be financially independent.

Ours was about 8.75 months, we were engaged 2/26/09 and married 11/21/09!  I consider it less than 9, as he proposed the first day of our three night cruise and thusly it wasn’t announced until March when we returned!! =)

Mine is almost exactly a 5 month engagement :). Everything’s falling into place too, so I don’t feel rushed at all!
