8 months (and 2 days)
We originally wanted a very small wedding and considered eloping, but our moms were both pretty crushed about that. Our wedding is now in town, everything’s at a restaurant, it’s super cost-efficient and very low stress. If it were bigger, we would have wanted more time, but keeping the timeline short allows this wedding to basically “get to the point” haha. 
We’re getting married at the end of next month!

9 months, but I could have planned the wedding in 3-4.

about a week short of a year..and yeah, I agree, aside from the money saving part, it could all have been done in 5 to 6 months.

It will be exactly 22 months! I enjoy it this way. I already have very limited time for stuff and planning has been fun and stress free

Ours was 14 months! Way too long imo, but that’s the way the dates worked out

Ours is about 14 months. We were aiming for around a year, so this isn’t too far off. It was just when our desired venue had availability.

1 year, which was perfect. I managed all of the planning whilst in my 2nd year of law school, so it was a good amount of time to get everything done.  It flew by!

Ours was 19 months because I knew I wanted a September wedding, but 7 months wasn’t enough time to plan

  • Wedding: June 2017 - Grandover Resort

Ours is exactly 17 months. We got engaged in early January of this year & we’re getting married June 3rd, 2017. 

I’d rather have less than a year long engagement but our only option is a Summer wedding & we didn’t want to rush to plan one for Summer ’16. So we settled with the long engagement. 

7.5 months to go!

One week less than a year. Could have been shorted but I’m a teacher and needed to plan around summer vacation
