Right now, the average engagement length is 14 months! How does your planning timeline compare? Are you taking your time or are you on a tighter deadline? ⏱️


Will you have a long or short engagement?

    Ours is definitely a shorter engagement, only eight months total. Just worked out that way!

    Short! We haven’t set an exact date yet, but we got engaged November 9, 2019 and we’re looking to get married in July or August 2020, making our engagement 8-9 months. We want a summer wedding and don’t want to wait a year and a half!

    Ours was 12 months (Almost exactly a year), so I guess ours was average time?

    Short. We were engaged June 29, 2019 and married November 2, 2019. He’s deploying next year, we wanted to get married before then, and he knew I wanted a fall wedding. So, here we are and it only took 4 months!

    Relatively short Smiley smile We'll be engaged for just under a year (by 1 day!). We've been together for 5.5 years now and just want to be married! He proposed January 12th, 2019, we're getting married January 11th, 2020!

    Very short! 5 months! It would’ve been shorter but we couldn’t take any attention away from his sister who just got married on Saturday.
