How long is your engagement?

A friend of mine met her husband, got engaged and married in a matter of 6 months and it got me thinking how stressed I would be if I planned a wedding in the 2 1/2 month time frame that she did. My FH and I have been together for 5 1/2 years and when we get married we will have been engaged for 1 year and 4 months. How long is your engagement?

    15 month engagement here! I could do with a bit shorter, but it's all good. (:

    I know the feeling. Time felt like it was dragging but now that I’m less than 6 months out, it’s starting to feel real and so exciting.

    10 months from the formal engagement. 22 months from when we decided we were going to get married and chose a timeframe.

    Our engagement will be just shy of 5 months, and we dated for 7 months prior to getting engaged, and were close friends for 6 months before that. When you know you know Smiley heart

    We are recently engaged and I would love a fall wedding - but this fall feels too soon and we agree that next fall feels so far away. We are thinking about next May, and if we go with that then the engagement will be 17 months.

    He proposed the day after my 21st birthday, he was going to do it on my birthday but we went to a bar with some of my friends from work to celebrate that night and lets just say i dont remember anything after the 3 vegas bombs and the triple shot of coconut rum, but we have been engaged since December 6th of 2017 and our wedding is not until June of 2019, so we have plenty of time to prepare, get everything together, and to save money. ❤ (hopefully)

    We’ve been together 10 years in March and have been engaged Since August 9th so our wedding day would make it be a 10 month long engagement only because my bff is getting married in April and I’m her Maid of Honor.

    FH and I were friends for a year, together for a year and half when he proposed, getting married in two weeks so our engagement was 8 months long. I couldn’t be happier.

    We will be engaged one day shy of a full year. Been together 6 years prior to engagement and it'll be about 7 once we are married.

    22 months. I don’t think most couples need to be engaged that long but we had special circumstances that required it.

    We plan at least a 1 year to 1.5 years, due to saving up money.
