    We got engaged at Christmas and are getting married this coming January, so it is just a pinch over a year. I think it’s great timing. The time has flown! I don’t feel in a rush with planning, but every month I have knocked out some big items to do, and it feels great.

    14 months and I HATED it!  I’m a teacher a knew I wanted to get married over the summer.  We got engaged April 22, 2011 and doing it that summer was just too quick so we had to wait.

    I want a two year minimum engagement. Firstly since we will only be able to be in the engagement phase once and I want to take my time and enjoy it, possibly will plan an engagement party for ourselves and get engagement photos and announcements sent and all that fun jazz.  Afterwards we will have lots of time to plan and complete DIY projects leasurely and have everything organized and ready to go a month or two beforehand so then when everyone is here we can just relax and have fun

    @HopefulSim:  We got engaged on November 13, 2012 and will be getting married on November 9, 2013 … So just a little under 1 year.  

    I really wanted to wait at least a year (or close) between getting engaged and having the wedding.  I knew it would make planning a little less stressful, and it was also ideal since we’ll be having a lot of people traveling from out of town.  I wanted to give our guests plenty of time to make travel plans, request time off work, etc.

    It seems like it’s coming up so soon, though, and there’s still quite a bit to be done.  I probably could have used some more time!

    We had the Engagement part of our ongoing LIFE PLAN Talk in the Fall of 2011 (I told him I wanted to be married before the end of 2012).

    He proposed on his own timeframe (as guys are apt to do)… on Vacation in April.

    We got the ring in June… altho we were “technically Engaged” without a Ring, I truly didn’t feel it was 100% so until there was an ERing on my finger

    We were married over the Christmas Holidays.

    So approx 9 months from the Proposal, and 6 months from my getting the ERing.

    It was fast for sure… but then again, we had dated for over 7 Years by the time we married, and we are both Encores so we knew what we wanted out of life, and this time round it wasn’t a BIG White Pouffy Wedding… it was to Elope to a Destination Wedding & Romantic Honeymoon for just 2.

    Hope this helps,

    PS… I VOTED = 6 – 12 MONTHS

    We were engaged 22 months because we were both in school and decided to wait just a little bit so that the stress of school and the stress of planning a wedding wouldn’t stack too much. My parents were engaged for just 3 months 22 years ago though and it worked out well :). You can do it!
