How long were you engaged for? How long did you have to plan your wedding?

    We got engaged on June 24th 2015 & got married on September 24th 2016.

    We started planning straight away & would've got married sooner (always said we wanted a short engagement) - however we had our reception at our Cricket club so had to chose between before the season started (early April) or at the end of the season (September). We decided on September as didn't want to risk an April marquee wedding! 

    Saying that 15 months flew by :-)

    We got engaged on 14th March 2017 and our wedding is 20th March 2020 :) We've been together 10 years this September so a 3 year engagement won't hurt! Our engagement was a complete surprise, which others find hard to believe!  We booked our venue 3 weeks after being engaged.

    Been together - 8 and a half years

    Got engaged - 5 years ago. We were too skint to get married there and then and caring for my grandpa so the wedding took a back seat for a while until last yr 

    Time between booking wedding and the actual wedding date - 10 months roughly

    By the time we get married we will have been together 7 years and 11 months and engaged for 6 years and 7 months. 

    When we got engaged we were both at university and after that we were saving for a house so we only started planning the wedding in January 16 giving us 1 year 9 months to plan.

    I say we're not engaged when people ask... it annoys him lol

    And I say that because when we decided to get married was November 2016 we were in a pub and he just said shall we get married next year, I just said, yeah ok...

    So there was imo no real proposal, so we skipped the engagement and just planned the wedding from start of this year for December this year :)

    By time we get married, we will have been together for 15 years though...:) x

    We got engaged on 27th December 2015 and our wedding is on 17th September 2017. We wanted a specific date but my friend was getting married on the same day 2016 so we had to postpone it to a year later.  The actual wedding planning started around September last year. 

    17th September is our anniversary and we will be together for exactly 5 years on out wedding day.
