We’ve talked about engagement stories before, but I’d love to know: Would you rather get married shortly after getting engaged or wait awhile and have a longer engagement? My parents got engaged in December and were married the following June. But my grandparents? They met in February and got married just four months later, in June, shortly before my grandfather left for World War II. Yikes! I can’t imagine that. But then you hear stories about couples who have been engaged longer than they dated, and they still don’t have a wedding date set.
What about you, friends? If you’re married, how long was your engagement? Looking back, was it too short? Too long? Just right? What factors went into deciding the length of your engagement? Do you think the standards are different today than they were, say, 10 or 20 years ago? Let’s chat! xoxo
P.S. What did you think of Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds’ short engagement?
