Hi bees i’m on a roll with posts today. I am just curious as to those Bees who have been engaged for a while. In two months it’ll be a year on my birthday that i was proposed to, due to some waiting periods for church we have no confirmed date. I am now entering his church which i truly enjoy and i haven’t gotten chance to speak to the Pastor (who is extremely honestly busy). Last Year i gave four different dates to wen my wedding will be. BUT still waiting. I can say that I am atleast working on my path to my Faith. So any BEEs waiting patiently?

Waiting for Fiance to finish his masters so he can be the bread winner 😉 and also trying to kick off my career. Also waiting to get my braces off (in May I hope)

We waited a bit longer to have more time to plan. I’m in grad school as well as working full-time…plus we figured the extra few months of saving wouldn’t hurt either!

I wanted to have about a yearlong engagement, and he wanted to wait til we lived together for a year to propose, and I wanted to wait for at least a few months of living in the same city until we lived together, and we couldn’t live in the same city til I finished grad school… so here we are. 🙂

We are waiting till 2013 simply because we thought saving 1K a month for 20 months would be so much more ideal than trying to scrape together 20K in 12 months!
Also, we just are not in a rush. We live together, we share expenses, we are basically a part of each other’s familys already. A wedding is just icing on the cake

We had a 2 year, 4 month engagement so I could finish my master’s degree. 🙂

I’m married, but I had a 2.5 year engagement because I spent a year abroad for grad school, and the Olympics were in town when I got back so that would have been hell to plan around.

Although we’ve known we were going to get married pretty much since we first admitted we loved each other; we’ve taken it slow. We live in different countries which complicates things logistically. Both of us wanted to take enough time we felt ready – he’s moving across Canada and I’m moving across the border. Alsp because our wedding is a destination for everyone, it’s taking a lot of planning and organizing. Money also has played a role.

We are in the midst of a 22 month engagement. Thankfully only 8 more months to go! We had a long engagement because we wanted to save up for a house first. He proposed after 7 years, will be married during 8.

I’m married now, but we were engaged just shy of 3 years. He proposed right before starting law school and we got married a month after he graduated.

I wanted to finish my masters and get a job and start saving money before I even begin to plan a wedding. So alas my wedding planning won’t begin until this summer and we are trying for a Jan 4, 2014 wedding! So far away 🙁

Well, Fiance wanted a “real” wedding with family and didn’t just want to elope or go to the court house (my plan) so we had to take some time to save and plan. By the time we decided to have a “real wedding” it was almost 6 months into our engagement. We decided wanted a fall wedding and it was too close to fall 2011 to plan for then so we planned for 2012.
ETA: It’ll be a 23 month engagement all said and done.

We wanted to be a little older, but our wedding is the month of our birthdays haha. We just wanted to get a little distance from just graduating college and starting work. We graduated 2010 and will be married over 2 years later.

Can’t afford it. We got engaged when I was 20 and he was 25: I was still at uni and we both lived with our parents. We’ve been engaged 3 and a bit years now – he’s 28 and I’m 23 – we’re currently waiting for me to get a proper teaching job then we’re going to start planning. We didn’t see the point of getting married and not having a house. I know plenty of couples do that but it wasn’t for us.
