  • Wedding: September 2012

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.

Engaged May 6, married Sept 3. Just under 4 months to plan a full blown church wedding and dinner and dance reception for 250 guests… on a $12,000 budget.

Oh, and the first month I was still finishing my year in grad school out of state, so all I did during that time was book venues (based on photos my fiance was sending me), it wasn’t until mid to late June that I could actually get back home and hit the ground running with everything else (while, of course, doing course work onlne)!

Crazy, and not something that I would exactly recommend for others to try, but possible and much preferable to spending a whole nother year apart! πŸ™‚
