like others, it was to be able to save the money since we are paying for everything ourselves. my fiance has been out of work on disability (very limited income) and going to school as well. it just made sense for us. it got so annoying with people's comments that i actually started saying, "if you'd like to pay for our wedding, we'd be happy to get married tomorrow." LOL, but then again, i'm a sarcastic b*tch and people would expect that from me. hehe
you could be more tactful tho haha, and since you have decided on a destination wedding, why not tell people that in today's economy you felt it was necessary to have a long engagement not only for your own financial situation, but in order to give your guests ample time to save the money to attend.

I have a hard time answering the how long have you been together question. Just because, we were friends with benefits for over a year or so before we became exclusive. And then one summer we began hanging out lots and I'd spend the night at his place more days out of the week than at home, and even though we didn't say we were dating, we were not with anyone else. At the end of that July, I went to Costa Rica for 15 days for a class I was taking in grad school, and my apartment was flooded while I was gone because there was a fire in the apartment two stories above mine. My FI was not technically my boyfriend then, but he wanted me to come live with him and he really helped me out while I was in Costa Rica. So when I got back we began living together and were exclusive. But we never had a first date or anything, no anniversary, no real day that marks the significance of us being an official couple. So my complicated answer is that we were together about 2-4 years before we got engaged.
