J and I have been engaged since Christmas Eve 2010.  We aren’t getting married until October 2012.  We chose a “long” engagement because we decided it’d be best for us to have plenty of time to save.  I also wanted to have a longer engagement because I want to be as stress free as I possibly can.  🙂

When we get married we will have been engaged a little over 6 months! We were engaged December 2010 and will be getting married this June!! It’s going by so fast but I wouldn’t have it any other way!!!
 
Some days I wish that we had more time to plan and do more DIY projects but then I remember that the whole point is to marry Fiance and that’s what I’m most excited about and I don’t want to wait a long time to do that.
 
I really think that it depends a lot on the couple and their personal preference too. Long engagements are perfect for some people, this is just what worked for us 🙂

We have been together for almost 10months and have been engaged since DEC and are planning our wedding for Next May. That way we have been together for 2yrs by then and have plenty of time to get everything done and money saved up. I prefer the 17month engagement.

We got engaged november 7th 2010, and will be getting married August 4th 2012. It’s a longer engagement. I always said that I wanted a longer engagement…but now that I’m in one , I’d really like to be getting married this summer. We just don’t have the time to plan, since it’s my first year as a teacher…things are crazy enough as it is! We also need the time to save some moulah. So 2012 it is. The positive part is that it gives us time to plan and we’re not panicking at all….we can enjoy being engaged. We also have something to look forward to for a little while 🙂

We will have a rather short engagement also.  We got engaged late December 2010 and will be married October 1st, 2011, so a little more than 9 months.  So many people have told me that it’s not enough time to plan a wedding but we have been living together for 5 years and I cannot wait any longer!!
