which castle did you decide on?

I thought my engagement was longish, but it turns out it's below average. lol I"ll have been engaged for just under 1 year, like 11 months and 2 1/2 weeks... i think. lol

We really did it based on the weather.  April is the second lowest month for rain in FL besides November, the lowest.  I didn't want to get married in Nov so we went with April.  1 year and 4 months after our engagement.

A year and five months! It was supposed to be shorter but life happened and the Marine Corps doesnt really care what your plans are! LOL!

Going to the chapel and we're gonna get married! December 27, 2008!

justkel: we have the same wedding date!

But we'll be engaged 3 years and 4 months by then.

How exciting!!  When FH and I tell people our wedding date they give us a very strange look.  They're like, "It's not on a Friday is it?"  I just want to say, "Who cares!!"  I don't believe in bad luck in numbers and such.  :)

Someday it will be! But it's also going to be our 4 year anniversary of the day we met.

We'll have been engaged 1 year, 2 months by the time we get married. The shocker with us that everyone is still having a problem with is that we got engaged after only being together for a few months.

It will be 1 year, 1 month and 17 days.   We wanted September, and we got engaged in August.  And I am NOT insane!   In Alabama, September starts off hot and tapers down to reasonable as far as weather is concerned...so end of September.

Just shy of three years. Yes, a long time. We got engaged on a whim and just wanted to make sure we were really ready. It was perfect for us! Now there are only 12 days to go until the big day!

roughly 2 1/2 years.  We're paying for it ourselves and needed time to save. But from now its only 11 more months and counting!

I think over a year would have killed me. Ten months is killing me! And there's still two to go...aaargh, I just want it to be over now - partly because I'm looking forward to it so much, and partly because I just want to stop having my life consumed by planning!
