The Benefits of a Short Engagement
Proposal season is coming! Statistically, nearly 40% of all marriage proposals happen between Thanksgiving and Valentine’s Day. It’s a pretty special time of year filled with lots of anticipation and excitement and once it happens for you, you may not want to wait the average 12-18 months to tie the knot. There are really no rules to follow and it’s totally ok to have a much shorter engagement period. Let’s talk about some major pros for having a shorter engagement.
You’re Just Ready to Be Married
Shorter engagements can shift the focus from wedding planning to the relationship itself. Couples may spend more time strengthening their connection and preparing for married life, rather than getting caught up in prolonged wedding preparations.
You Won’t Stress About the Dress
Don’t let finding a dress hold you back from having a short engagement. We’re loving the trend of a simply elegant dress or a flirty short dress (so hot right now) like the dresses above from Dessy (D885 left 1070 center and D857 right). You can do anything you love, choose something timeless like our beautiful bride Taylor, or go with the fun short dress trend, you can even find some really amazing options at local bridal boutiques and you can find countess options online at Anthropologie.
It’s Generally Less Stress and Pressure
Longer engagements can sometimes feel like more pressure and be more stressful. Couples with shorter engagements may feel less overwhelmed and can focus on the excitement of the marriage without a prolonged period of anticipation.
There’s No Time for Second-Guessing
Shorter engagements can require a more focused and concentrated effort, which can lead to increased productivity and efficiency. You and your partner may feel more motivated to get things accomplished within a shorter time frame which can help eliminate second guessing decisions you made about the wedding months before.
It Provides Immediate Enjoyment
With a shorter engagement, couples can quickly move from the planning phase to the actual married life, which can mean experiencing the joys of partnership without an extended planning period.
Your Dream Wedding Season is Coming Up
If your lifelong dream is to get married in the spring or summer, but you just got engaged on Valentine’s Day, the idea of waiting a year or longer to walk down the aisle might not be something you’re open to.
