There’s a lot of time between your #justsaidyes moment and saying “I do”! In fact, the average couple is engaged for 14 months. How long will your engagement be?

Are you over or under the 14 month average?

    What has it been like planning a wedding in 5 months, Sarah? Did you do an pre-engagement prep?

    Under, thank goodness! I knew before we even talked about engagement that I didn't want a long engagement. It will be 8 months engaged.
