We got engaged in October 2011 and will be married on August 24th 2013 so nearly a 2 year engagement. But we had a baby Novemeber 2012 so a 2 year engagement isn't too bad in our situation. We didn't want to wait till we were married to have our bubs. Looking forward to TTC the 2nd baby after the wedding!

Glad you decided on a date

We got engaged in early 2009 and get married mid 2013, so our engagement will be 4 and half years! We would never have had such a long engagement but two months after popping the question we found out we were pregnant. So in that time we've had a child and started a (so far) very successful business.

For those reasons I disagree with whoever said there is no point in getting engaged without the intentions of getting married quickly. I think it can be done however you want. Our first year of engagement was spent saving for the baby. Our second year was spent with me on maternity leave. Our third year was a terrible year all around. And our fourth year has been spent planning and saving and running a business. Take our daughter out of the equation and we most likely would have been married in 2010! Makes no difference. I'm still spending the rest of my life with this man, whether it's written on paper or not

Our wedding is in May and our engagement has been 17 months long. Although it's been hard to be patient I've been so thankful to have so much time to plan and get it all in order!
