  • Wedding: April 2013

Got the ring this past Christmas, we originally were going to have an Out of Town wedding for April 13, 2013 but planning an Out of Town wedding was too stressful for me so the last wk of this past April we decided to have the wedding this year, the Sat after Thanksgiving, was the best time to do it. All of our family from Out of Town will already be down. So to be techincal, approx 7 mons.

Engaged January 8, 2011 and we’re getting married on September 1, 2012.  So 20 months.  We had some extenuating circumstances with the death of my FI’s father.

we got engaged after dating for only 3 months so i wanted to wait to start planning the wedding.  also, we also had a lot of travel and moving plans to take care of so we were engaged for 2 yrs before even starting the planning.  the only thing i had done was bought my dress.  once we were finished with our travels and settled in our new place, we planned it in less than 6 months.

engaged oct ’09

started planning nov ’11

wedding apr ’12

We got engaged on February 3rd, 2012 and we’re getting married September 30th, 2012. So it will be just under 8 months from when we got engaged until we get married. We really didn’t want to wait too long. We had everything planned and booked within two months after getting engaged.. now it’s just waiting for the wedding!

We got engaged 1/23/12 and are getting married on 12/15/12- so like 10.5 months.  It w is too long of an engagement- we could have easily gotten married in 6 months.

We got engaged in August of 2008 and are finally getting married in October of 2012 so I guess you can say I had four years to plan but I only thought about it off and on. I’ve only been seriously planning for the past 9 months.

we got engaged in September of last year (the 30th to be exact) and we are getting married this year on Sept 15! so just slightly less than a year–it goes by so fast!
