We only had a 4 month engagement, so pretty soon after the engagement we set our date. It still took a little bit of time because we had to have a lot of different people agreeing on it. It probably took about 2-3 weeks. It wasn’t even final until we signed with the venue, but they did have our date open.

Pretty much within the hour we had the date picked out.

We got engaged in Oct 2012 and my Fiance suggested 2 dates which we decided on in December, I’m not in any rush but others kept asking. As long as I got tto choose the location it could have been 3 yrs out and I would have been happy. Fiance wants to do this summer but I said no, I want to take time to plan everything. He’s my forever so I don’t want to have a rush wedding.

We got engaged just before Christmas and we waited until the middle of January to set a date. I just wanted to enjoy being engaged before wedding planning madness began.

We had a date “range” within a week. I was super paranoid that things were going to get booked up so I started early lol

lol well…. we set our wedding date the same night we got engaged. We opened the calendar, saw when his best break for teaching came, and set our date.

it took about a month to figure out what we needed to do to coordinate it with the church, and everything was dependent on that.

We set a date within a couple of days, but I think it was mainly because we had limited dates to choose from since I am in school and we both knew we didn’t want more than a year lng engagement. I don’t think that’s normal though, and honestly it would have been really nice to have a little more time to settle in to being engaged before we had a date and all the wedding planning pressure that came with it.

@radar: We set our official/final date about a week and a half after we got engaged. We needed to confirm with the venue and then we starting with the other plans.

It was around a month before we had a date, but then we changed it after a few months because of some work issues my husband had. Then we picked a new date in a few days. I hope that was easy to follow 🙂

- Wedding: September 2012 - Mother of the Bride\'s residence
Maybe a week? Two weeks? It was our first wedding fight to be honest, because I really wanted to set a date and Mr. D wanted to bask in being engaged. We had to set a date to set a date.

We didn’t choose for about 10 months because we were still saving $ to come up with a clear budget and weren’t sure what kind of wedding we wanted to have and where. We chose the date as soon as we realized we wanted a Destination Wedding.

We had about a week before we set a date… We’d been talking about it, but that’s when we set it stone.
The reason we were thinking about it so early is that we had been talking about marriage a long time before we got engaged, so we were ready to talk about it more seriously.

Let’s see… Engaged just before thanksgiving 2011, narrowed it down to late fall 2012 or early spring 2013 that weekend, decided on the fall option within a week or two, visited venues over Christmas and picked our actual date then. So, a month from ring to date.

Engaged on the 2nd day of a cruise (5/15/12) by the time we arrived in port (5/18 or 5/19) I had a month & year in mind…but waited an extra 2 days before I sprang it on Fiance. Now he won’t budge from that date, because he said we agreed to it.
So all in all about 1 week?
