    How long were you engaged before getting married?

    Banned
    My girlfriend is getting itchy ring finger, we've been together erm 7yrs. I want a spring/summer wedding so if I propose soon it will be over a year before we get married, so just curious what your circumstances were thanks.

    was engaged for 6 years - oops!

    I think it depends on each couple and each couples finances!

    7 years is a long time, I say you propose and waiting until next summer spring seems a fair time!!

    Good luck

    Together for 6, engaged for 1 now married for 2

    Doesn't really matter, waiting for the right time of year is more understandable than just putting it off for no reason

    What do I need luck for it's a guaranteed yes :roll: not like I thought it was going to be when I was little-n, I thought any girl I asked to marry me would say "No way you ugly freak", like when I used to ask girls out :cry:

    We were together just over 1 year before we got engaged but were engaged for 2 years before we got married.

    My sister on the other hand has been engaged since December but has been with her (now) fiance for almost 6 years. Personally, I wouldn't have waited that long but we are very different!
    Saying that, I think that you should propose now for a S/S wedding as it takes ages to plan plus you'll need to book the venue well in advance too as they get booked up fast particularly for fridays & saturdays.

    Good luck & be romantic - don't forget it doesn't mean it has to be expensive!!!
    :thumbsup:
