  • Wedding: May 2014

We were engaged 2 years and 3 months when we got married. Sometime it felt like forever and a day, and others it felt like I blinked and the wedding was here. I liked the long engagement (which was necessary because my DH was finishing medical school and we didn’t want to add any additional stressors at the time) because I never got stressed out planning the wedding. I did a little here, then took a break, and a little there, and another break lol. It doesn’t work for everyone, but it was perfect for us!

We’ll be engaged for almost 3 years by the time we get married. We were originally supposed to be engaged for 21 months but then I got into a fast-tracked grad program and we pushed the wedding back a year so it’ll be 33 months by the time we finally say I do. Only 19 months to go!

We’ve been engaged for 3 years, and won’t be married for another year to 1.5 years. We got engaged August 2011 and plan on being married in Winter 2015/Spring 2016.

One month away from 3 years on our wedding day. We got engaged much earlier than we had planned, life threw some crazy stuff at us and we decided it was important not to wait.

  • Wedding: July 2011

We were together 7 months when we got engaged, then married 4 months later.  So yeah – a 4 month engagement!  I didn’t like being a girlfriend or fiancee – we pretty much just went straight to husband and wife 😉

  • Wedding: December 2014

Livia-C-to-be:  We will have been engaged for 4 months and we got engaged after a year of being together. Honestly, I can barely stand to wait that long, I don’t know what to do with myself while waiting for December to come. We’re not having a real wedding so there isn’t really much planning to do, just waiting. I can’t imagine waiting 2+ years.

  • Wedding: June 2016 - Charleston, SC

Livia-C-to-be:  we’ve only been engaged 3 months so far, but will have had a 2 year (almost exactly!) engagement by the time we get married. I go back and forth between being really happy I have time to plan, relax, and save and being really antsy to actually get to DO SOMETHING! We’re having a long engagement for many reasons as well…in the end I think I’ll be glad we are doing it this way but sometimes I sure do wish there was more to plan 🙂

Together 4.5 years and engaged for 7 weeks. We’ve now been married almost 8 weeks but oh it’s a magical time!
