How long were you dating before you got ENGAGED? and how long did it take to set a wedding date?
Just curious how long people were dating before he popped the question - and after getting engaged, how long did it take you to set a date? What were some of the things that you took into consideration when setting a date? We were engaged in May of 2011 (this year) and still have not set an exact date yet!(we have a general idea - but......) (By the way - we had been dating almost a year and half when he proposed..)

we dated about 8 months before we decided we wanted to get married.
We chose our date {NYE} because its a great night to have a wedding.

we didn't get formally engaged until my birthday {March 5th}
but by then we had already had the hall reserved and my dress paid for!

We had been dating for over a year...and decided on the wedding date like three days after we got engaged. My father was deploying and we needed to do a date that would be easy for him to come home from Iraq on leave, and also 9/25 is my FHs parents anniversary...his father died in a motorcycle accident when he was 10 so its kind of in memory of him.

We had been dating for 3 years and 5 months before we got engaged. It took about a week to set a date. We knew it had to be in 2012 so we could save $$. Once I realized that our anniversary fell on a Saturday, it was done! So we are getting married exactly 5 years from our 1st date!

I come from a family that stands by the statement "when you know, you know" ( My brother was engaged after two months of dating and married after seven and are still happilymarried 5 years later) We were engaged 6 months into dating and will be married a little over a year of dating! Our families get along so well and I never expected to find such an amazing, caring,and generous man! I have truly been blessed!

We had been dating for 10 months before we got engaged and waited a year and 4 months before we set a date. Our wedding day will be the day after our three year anniversary!

We have been together for 5 years this summer and got engaged in April. But I couldn't say anything til her formally asked my dad so it wasn't announced until May. We set a date by May but have changed it 3 times lol. Hopefully it won't be changing again. Good luck picking out your date and happy planning :)

We got enganged after 9months (Nov of 2010) of dating we cldn't decide whether to get married this fall or next fall. We finally decided after 2 months it would be in our best interest financially to wait so October 2012 it is.

We were dating just under 3 years before he proposed.

We've been engaged since late May and we still have yet to secure our wedding date.

Friends for 6 years, dateing 11 months before we got engaged, 2 weeks to set the date... then we had to wait almost year before we could put a deposit on the venue to lock the date in because they only take bookings 18months in advance.

We were dating 18 months before he proposed. We'll be on our 2 1/2 year mark when we marry. Took awhile to set a date. First I wanted Fall 2011. But my BFF who got engaged 3 weeks before me is getting married in Nov 2011. So we looked at March 2012, but that is Florida's busy season. FH did not want to wait till Fall 2012, so after talking with my BFF she said it would be fine for us to marry in the fall of this year.
