So my fiancé just revealed he has a sizable chunk of the wedding budget squirreled away. This was really great news after a terrible day! We have been engaged for 2.5 years and still don’t have a date (I went back for grad school and put things on hold). We moved across the country a few months ago so he didn’t want to let me know that he had something aside for the wedding just incase we had a hard time getting settled here (although I knew of the account -no details- I had forgotten about it).
So it seems like the never ending engagement might have an end in sight after all! So thrilled I had to share. I was beginning to consider joining the waiting forum!
Has any one else had a reaaaally long engagement? What were the circumstances and how did you get the ball rolling?

Yay! A light at the end of the tunnel is always a huge relief! No matter how long that tunnel still is!
We were engaged almost a year before setting a date. I knew that I wanted Spring or early Summer, so by October of last year I knew I needed to start looking for a venue. Once that and the finances were figured out everything fell into place.
Have you seen the movie “The Five-Year Engagement”? I recommend it. It’s cute and funny, but also serious stuff. Makes you keep things in perspective.

I’ve been engaged for FIVE years.. I thought it was four, but recounted and its five, we’ll have been engaged six years when we marry. Basically, we were (and are) young, we bought a house and did some property investing – our future is pretty much set. We still don’t have a lot of money now by any means, our wedding soho uld come in under $8,000 But we have some good long term investments 🙂
