I’m sorry you’re having a difficult time!
By the time we get married, our engagement will be 2 years and 3 months, and our entire relationship will be 3 years, 7 months.
We took over a year to finally set a wedding date, and when we finally set it, the date was still over a year away, so I definitely know how you feel.

When we got engaged we originally planned a wedding that was 3 years ahead. Now due to family issues, we’ve bumped it up so the engagement will be 1.5 years. I’m excited to have it be sooner, but the extra time to plan/save would’ve been really helpful too!

Crap, we haven’t even really looked at rings yet. He wants sort of a Celtic band, while I just want a simple, slender, vintage-y one. We picked our first dance songs as well (we’re having two; “Easy Living” by Billie Holiday and “Blue Moon” by Frank Sinatra). What’s yours? 🙂 Btw, I totally love the bling on that dress! This is the one I like: http://www.dessy.com/dresses/bridesmaid/d440/?color=snow%20white&colorid=1073

We had a 16 month engagement and it really wasn’t all that bad. We got engaged in March and as a teacher it is easier to get married in the summer. But there was no way we could pull it off in four months. Instead, we enjoyed the planning process and being engaged. We just got married in July and it feels great. It was worth the wait!

Been engaged for 7 years THIS year and the wedding is in 2012. NINE YEARS. If ANYONE should be bummed for having to wait, I think I get first dibs 😛

He proposed the last week in June, and expected me to have the wedding figured out by October… LOL! We are waiting until March 19, 2011, and he keeps joking about how we would be married so much sooner if we did it his way, and to be honest, I almost wish I had. We are about an hour and 15 minutes apart so we only see each other on the weekends and on Wednesdays when work isn’t too bad for either of us. SIGH! I know its not even a year, but I can’t WAIT to finally live together!!
