our engagement will be 21 months. it’s nice to have plenty of time to plan, but almost 2 years is *too much* time in my opinion! i keep changing my mind on colors…themes…flowers…etc.!

Ours was 20 months. Having plenty of time is good… it’ll all pass by before you know it!

We had a 17 month engagement…I thought it was perfect. Just enough time to seriously save $$ for the wedding but not too much time that we felt like it wasn’t real.

We did get some weird looks when we were planning with over a year until the big day though. Did that happen to anyone else?

I found that most of the work came right at the beginning when picking the venue, date, location, etc. and for the last like 6 months at the end with all the details.

 I REALLY could not have planned a wedding in 6 months or less but have several friends who have. How do you do it, ladies? I had so much time and was still stressed out of my mind. 

Anyway…long answer to a short question. 

PS- Now that I am married I miss my engagement! Enjoy it while it lasts. But don’t get me wrong, I do love being married too. Just loved being the bride. 🙂

We have a 13 month engagement.  We’re now down to 11 months, and I plan on enjoying every minute of it.  Its been a blast so far!

How did I do it?  And go to school over full-time.  I cried a lot.  I am so glad it is over.  We had a beautiful wedding and I am so proud to say that I did it all myself!

18 months.  Lots of time is wonderful.  I’ve been able to enjoy the planning without as much stress, and we’ve been able to save some cash, too.  Even less stress!  Only now that a lot of the work is done I don’t know what else to do.  So … I spend entirely too much time poking around Weddingbee….

It will be a year that we’ve been engaged later on this month and we’re getting married in October.  We literally just started planning our tiny wedding three weeks ago.

7 months for me. I got all the vendors and such I wanted, and the shorter timeframe cuts out on second-guessing yourself. I am three months out now and man am I ready to just get on with it!

10 months… definitely the right decision for us and left plenty of time. When we got engaged I wanted to get married in about 6-12 months. I was keen to get married, not be engaged, you see.

It will be exactly four months and 12 days! Planning a wedding in that short a time isn’t difficult at all — it might actually be easier, because you are forced to simplify.
