We got engaged August 25th 2011 – We were originally going to have it April 7th (hence my username) but found out FI’s sister was preganant and due the day before, so we changed it to May 19th. Going to look at a venue that we will probably book today. 

At first, the less-than-a-year timeline was starting to worry me, but we have our photographer, cake, hair, attendants picked and save the dates ordered. I’m in the industry (wedding photographer assistant) and have a lot of contacts, so I’m not feeling stressed anymore!

Good luck to all the May brides!

We got engaged April 13th, 2011 and are getting married May 12, 2012 so we will be engaged for almost 13 months. We did run into a close call with our venue being booked (even though it was still a year out when we picked up), but other than that everything has worked out great. It is going by fast though! I can’t believe it’s already almost October!

I have a ridiculously long engagement that started in March 2010. I didn’t start planning anything a year had passed and now I’m on a roll! Good luck to all you ladies!

We got engaged September 2nd of this year. For this universe, it’s a super short engagement, but since I live in Utah, land of three month engagements being the norm, we’re actually taking a long time. I already bought my dress, I am narrowing in on a photographer (who so far is only booked two days in May) and we have a back-up venue that would be perfectly acceptable as a regular venue (and it’s free!). I’m also planning on having my wedding on a weekday, so that takes pressure off too.

We were engaged on New Years Eve, so Dec. 31, 2010, and we’re getting married on May 12, 2012.  It’ll be just over a fourteen month long engagement for us all told.

@baletrina: About 3 years ago! We didn’t plan on a long engagement, but life kept happening, lots of changes, moving, lack of money, etc. We decided May 2012 was do or die time, and here we go!

me and my Fiance met on Nov 7- we got engaged the following year on Nov 17- and I really wanted to get married initially on NOv 27. ( Notice all the 7’s?) haha- but my Fiance realized that his father died around tht same date, so we had to move it up to April- then it changed to May. hope it doesnt move anymore cuz Im tired of waiting lol.

 

For me, I dont feel the pressure with the planning less then a year thing cuz here in Egypt its SO easy –cuz you basically leave it up to the hall to decorate it, its a package- and you can spend from anywhere less then 4000 dollars to up.
