Love & Marriage Love & Marriage

How long did you wait to get married after you got engaged?!(:

We just got engaged and are wondering how long you ladies waited before the ceremony! If it was a long time, why wait so long? If it was short time, why so short?(:

My mother has been married twice now and is currently single- she waited YEARS before tying the knot! This included her throwing her ring back at both of the men and away several times! What do you think of that?


Should we wait so long? We want to get married before the end of the year if possible!;)

We got engaged in June and married in November.  It was supposed to be the following August but I just couldn't wait that long. ;)

We met at 16, talked about marriage at 21 before he left to boot camp and got married at 22/23. We weren't engaged, he asked if I still wanted to marry him( we went on a break but stayed friends) and we got married shortly after that.

We were engaged for about 11 months before we got married. We would have gotten married sooner, but had a lot of family coming from overseas and we wanted them to be there. So getting married in the summer made a lot more sense, so the kids could be out of school (theirs, we were kidless.)

 Army! He left the decision up to me, whether I wanted to do a courthouse wedding before he left, or plan my dream wedding when he returned. I made the decision to do the courthouse wedding and forego the initial dream wedding, and we will do an elaborate ceremony come 5 or 10 year anniversary. I don't regret it for a minute! I still had some beautiful pictures in a white sundress and him in his uniform, and bright cheerful fresh Summer flowers... it was beautiful and one of the best days in my life hands down!! Plus, saving the money from the wedding allowed us to have more options when he returned as well! We have been happy in love ever since..and are now expecting number two in the Fall. Congratulations to you and yours as well! I hope you find the path that makes you the happiest!
