We're planning on waiting "5-9 business years" haha, but we're honestly looking forward to just being husband and wife before becoming mom and dad too. We really don't want to have kids before we aren't living paycheck to paycheck either!
We’re planning on waiting at least a year. We’re planning on buying a house after the wedding. My best friends are also getting married next year and I’m going to be part of their bridal parties so I don’t really want to be pregnant during that time. We also want to travel a little bit.
We’re in the process of buying a new house (four bedrooms so we’re prepared 😉), and our wedding is in June. I’m a teacher but we really want me to stay home when we start having kids, so the plan is for me to work at least two more school years after this one, possibly three, depending on FH’s raises and other miscellaneous expenses before our first.

I’m so excited because my husband and I just agreed last night to start trying in July when I turn 30. We got married in November. We had been indecisive and going back and forth but I finally made up my mind and he finally decided he was ready too.
There is no fixed rule; it really depends on your circumstances. In my case, it was five years, because I wanted to finish law school and get started in my career first. Some people (particularly those who didn't live together before marriage) just want to have a year or so of married life to get used to each other before you have to get used to a third person. But if you're ready immediately after marriage, there is nothing wrong with that.
We both want to wait 5+ years. I’m still in law school and I want to be stable in my career before we have kids. We want to adopt so we plan on starting the adoption process in our late 20s/early 30s, and we will be 24/25 when we get married!
If I could I would wait a looong time lol. But sadly because of my age, i can't wait too long. We are going to try after a year. Hoping i'm like my mom and am able to get it the first try. But i do want to enjoy just being together before trying.
