    • Wedding: November 2016

    Were having a longer engagement for that reason! Don’t wanna feel rushed also, we can put deposits down every few months! We got engaged August 2014 and are getting married next November 2016. No rush And we got to book everything we wanted.

    Ours was a little over 7 months–engaged dec. 20, married July 24. Years of pre planning made it feel not so rushed ๐Ÿ™‚

    6.5 months. We were together for 4 years, and our process (as far as wedding planning) went smoothly for the most part. I didn’t want to spend a year of my life stressing about a wedding. We enjoyed our engagment and are now enjoying married life. Congrats:)

    thekaceeway:  Congrats and thank you for sharing the photos!  You look so surprised!!  He sounds very sweet and thoughtful.

    Our engagement was 14 months and I thought it was just about right.  I would have been less stressed with a slightly longer engagement but we wanted a spring wedding rather than fall.  

    Wishing you both every happiness!!  ๐Ÿ™‚

    Congratulations!

    I was engaged for about 5 weeks, but that’s because we got legally married with one guest in attendance, and all I did was pick out a chapel in Tahoe and choose a dress and jewelry. The wedding we’ll invite everyone to will be 2016 or possibly 2017.

    Also, I know your poll doesn’t have many responses yet, but I’m surprised at how many people said they were engaged for 6 months or less. I thought most engagements these days were at least a year.

    ohmylanta13:  Basically the same story for me! We were engaged for six months and didn’t plan anything for the first two. I knew I wouldn’t love planning and didn’t want to have to stress for a year about how much I was procrastinating!

    thekaceeway:  we got engaged JULY 6th 2014, we live in Canada, (I’m from the Netherlands) as fiance is Canadian and I moved here 6 years ago.. i want my sisters to be there and they all had holidays booked (they all live in holland, vacations booked and paid for ) for summer 2015.. So i wanted to get married on February 29th 2016 in Jamaica but majority of both fam’ said no to destination wedding ๐Ÿ™ so we booked August 6th 2016 as that’s when all the kids in holland and in Canada have summer holidays (in holland the summer holidays are way shorter and things go between north/south/west of the country so this overlapped) so that’s why!

    • Wedding: May 2015 - St Peter\'s Church, East Maitland, and Bella Vista, Newcastle

    14.5 months – engaged March 15 2014, married May 30 2015.  I wanted at least a year to plan it and also wanted a long weekend (a lot of guests traveling) and that’s how it worked out.  It meant I wasn’t rushed or stressed, and meant we were able to book the vendors we wanted.  For us, it was a really good length!
