    Short engagement of 10 months. We got engaged on July 31, 2019. My grandma is sick and she is the last of both of our grandparents. We really want her to be there. His lease is also up in April. I always wanted a fall wedding but May just worked out to be the right time for us!

    Relatively short. We got engaged July 5th this year and our wedding date is February 28 of next year... so a total of 8 months.

    Our engagement has been a little on the longer side. We got engaged January of 2018 and we are getting married June of 2020.

    Ours is short -- 10 months. It's, honestly, felt really long to me, though, since both my siblings got married within 6 months & 4 months.

    My fiancè and I have been engaged for over a year. We'll actually be engaged for 2 years before getting married.
    I'm in no rush lol. I mean, who would be? You only get called fiancè/fiancee once (hopefully).
    Also, I'm finishing up my last semester of college so I'm taking my time

    Ours will be 18 months. We would liked to get married sooner, but Catholic annulments are no joke.

    Ours is long because we wanted a Fall wedding and October 2020 options were booked! So ours will be a 2 year engagement.
