We were engaged for two years and four months total, so nowhere near as long as your total. But I will say that the wait is totally worth the joy of your wedding day. 🙂

If you’re really concerned, you may want to decide whether it’s more important to you to have a more elaborate (read: more expensive) wedding, or get married sooner and have it be more intimate and/or more simple.

Start buying stuff now. Save money, make a budget and buy one wedding related item a month. See what do it yourself projects you can do. Research and price compare. You will be grateful for all the time you have if you use it wisely.

I can’t imagine a 5 year engagement.  As a previous poster said, really think hard about whether the wait is worth the large wedding to you.  If it is, shop sales, research, coupon, negotiate, etc. to save money while you have the time.
