    • Wedding: February 2010

    almost 2 years between the engagement and the “public” wedding. It was WAY too long, IMO, but it was not up to us. 

    I dreaded planning a wedding though, and I just wanted to get it over with. In this sense, I’m kind of different from the other brides on weddingbee  🙂

    one really BIG advantage is that I got a really popular hard-to-get venue, since I reserved it so early!

    Our engagement will be 23 months. I wanted to be done with school before we got married, and that’s where the time fell!

    • Wedding: July 2014

    almost 2 years.  We had to save enough money and we wanted to have a summer wedding…

    so it took a little longer than other people.   The up side is I have plenty of time to plan the wedding 🙂

    • Wedding: December 2011

    Engaged late May, married that Christmas.

    Parents were paying so no budget/saving money concerns and it wasn’t a super popular time of year, so vendors weren’t all booked.

    We are older (had been involved in a lot of friends weddings) and DH does wedding photography, so we had a pretty good idea of what we wanted when we got engaged!

    Engagement length is totally a TETO kind of thing.  I couldn’t imagine being engaged for 2 years, but for some, it is the right thing!

    We are the same.  We had been talking marriage for a while, but didn’t get officially engaged until last month (April).  We are getting married in September.  But it feels like enough time to me.

    19 months for us, we got engaged before christmas and with wedding planning in a large urban area, it’s hard to plan a wedding in 6 months, so it ended up being that long…i’m grateful for it though cause i was able to take my time to plan it and not stress it over it
