We got engaged December 17, 2007 and will be getting married October 18, 2008. So that is almost eactly 10 months. I did not start planning at all until February though, and was originally thinking we would get married in May 09. FH did not want to wait that long, and was actually thinking July or August 08. So we compromised. We were together six years before we got engaged though, and both prefer the idea of a short(er) engagement. A little stressful planning a 200 person wedding in 8 months, but totally do-able!

October 18th, here we come!

Well, Notjustanotherprettyface has the countdown spot on to our wedding day.  Hooray for 4/4/09!!  We got engaged 1/1/08 so that's just over 1 yr 3 months. 

Honestly, if he hadn't have wanted a spring wedding on the beach, it would have been sooner.  The countdown is KILLING ME. lol

We got engaged December 24th 2006 and will be married December 6th 2008 So just shy of two years

 Lets not all get caught up in our wedding. Remember we should not only be planning for a our wedding but more so we should be planning for  our marriage. More so then fighting over shades of peach, tuxs, cake flavors and only god knows what else. Because the next morning it is over, guests are gone the flowers have died the cake well lets face it 1/2 of it was tossed out. Cinderella is still a maid, the limo is now a pumpkin And there is life to face ok after wild crazy monkey sex for 7 nights straight, lets not kid out selfs there are priorities After its all gone there's still bills to pay and a job to go back to

I'm feeling outcast.

We'll have been engaged for almost three years. Probably about two and a half.

We've actually spent that time TRYING to get married. First time around, we had no money and we wanted a wedding. We KNOW weddings don't make marriages, but we wanted a wedding, period. It was what felt right for us.

Second time around, we got hit with a personal tragedy and put things on hold.

So third time around is actually a charm.

We got engaged August 5, 2007 getting married April 11 2009.  So just under two years.  We have been dating since March of 2003 so we will be together just over six years when we get married.  That looks so strange to see six years with him!

We have been engaged for over a year. By the time we get married (May 9th, 2009), it would have been about 2 years and 2 months. And we would have been dating for over 2.5 years.

 But we also got engaged young, so we both knew we wanted a long engagement. Laughing

We were engaged about 2 years.  It was perfect because I was planning the wedding AND going back to school to I needed a bit more time.

6 months. Prior to getting engaged we were together for about a year. But I'm 36, I'd kissed a lot of frogs and it was about damn time for my Prince Charming to come along (and for me to recognize him)!

We have been been together 3 years and engaged for a year and a half, but we arent getting married until October 2010. So in total, it will be a 4 year engagement, 5 1/2 year relationship. At first we decided not to get married until we saved enough money, but then things started getting in the way and life started happening... that kept putting off the date. Truth be told, we never really made a wedding date until we booked the reception hall just last month. The only reason our wedding is so far ahead is because we want to finish our college classes and get other things taken care of first. Having a long engagement has allowed us to plan our wedding without getting too stressed when life happens to us. We've had a couple of financial situations come up that would have totally ruined some wedding plans if we had not had so long to prepare. Do I like, waiting so long? Not always. Am I thankful that we have had the room to plan without worrying? Every day. I just know that we ARE getting married no matter what, and when the big day actually comes along, it will be totally worth the wait.
