I am 22 years old, my fiancé 24. We have been together for five years and engaged for three of those. Surprisingly we only started planning 11 months before our date and have been taking it one step at a time, not entirely stress-free, but this app and its wonderful users have been my saving grace!

Happily married 🎉
