how long have you been engaged??

So im curious.. How long have all you guys been engaged, or how long will you be by the wedding?

I feel like I'm alone in the long engagement world.  He proposed 12/22/06 and now four years later we are planning the wedding.  We've been building a new home for the past couple years and that has taken over our entires lives, so that's kinda the reason, but now that things are almost done.. it's wedding time :)  so by the time we get married it will be almost 5 years... wow.

How about you guys?? any one else in the long engagement world with me?

Anniversary

    I got engaged on 10/10/10 - it was our three year anniversary.  We will be getting married in July so we are looking at less than a year engagement.  I'm one of the "older" brides around here and will be 35 when we get married, so I really didn't want to wait more than next summer.

    I have been engaged about 7 months now.  I may indeed have a long engagement as i have zero wedding plans yet.

    We got engaged in March of this year, so we've been engaged for about 9 months so far... 15 months by the time the wedding rolls around.  Far, far too long in my opinion :)

    It's so refreshing to hear im not the only one waiting!!  Thanks for sharing your stories :) 

    I have to be honest since its been so long, eloping has crossed my mind... but the way im looking at it, you only get married once, so might as well make it a huge party!!

    FI proposed June 1st 2009 and we will be married July 30th 2011. It seems like such a long engagement but we wanted to be out of college. My FI just got his diploma in the mail and i will be marching this spring. The time has given me some great deals and time to figure out exactly what I want.

    I think that I have the smallest engagement time. We got engaged on Sep. 12, 2010 and will be getting married on April 30th 2011,so thats just about 8 monts. The wedding was supposed to be September 17 but decided to move it up to April to save alot of money. We have been together for two years though

    Ben proposed on 11/11/10 and we are getting married 8/14/11 - so that'll be about nine months.  I wanted to keep the engagement relatively short and sweet.

    We got engaged July 18, 2010 and we're getting married Sept 09, 2011 so about 14 months.  I don't know that I could wait patiently for much longer than that, lol!

    We got engaged in December 2009 and will be married August 27, 2011. I was in school from December 2009 - May 2010 and I didnt even want to think about planning anything until I had finished being an undergrad! Once I moved back to Maine, my fiance and I bought a house, then started wedding planning. Building your life together sometimes has to come before the big day! But patience and knowing that you'll be able to have exactly the wedding and life together you want is worth any amount of waiting in my opinion.
