I’m a teacher, so getting married over the summer is the easiest for me, and having time for a honeymoon and getting all the name change stuff in order before school starts was a priority for me. We ended up getting the venue about two weeks after we got engaged because people book June weddings around here 1.5-2 years ahead of time and we wanted to get married next summer (about a year after getting engaged).
6 months, which I feel like isn't the norm lol. Of course I would look into things and do a little bit of research, but not real planning. We knew we wanted to get married in August 2020, so we decided to just chill/enjoy being engaged and then once we were a little over a year out start planning.
