By April Littleton

A rep for the SNL alum Andy Samberg confirmed to People that he married singer-songwriter Joanna Newsom, Saturday, in Big Sur at the Post Ranch Inn. The couple dated for five years before getting engaged in February. When asked if the two would ever collaborate together, Samberg told Glamour, “We’ve talked about it. But we’ve decided ultimately that her fans would probably murder me in my sleep. What she does is so, like, actually beautiful and important.”

How do you decide how long of an engagement to have?

Cupid’s Advice:

Many couples start to plan the details of their wedding right after they decide to get engaged. While there’s nothing wrong with starting to prepare for your special day, this is also the time to just live in the moment with the one you’ve chosen to love forever. Cupid is here to help:

1. Talk to your partner: Once you get over the initial excitement of being engaged, you should sit down and talk to your significant other about when they envision getting married. You might want to tie the knot as soon as possible, while your honey wants to enjoy the engagement for awhile. There’s nothing wrong with waiting to make plans, but compromise if you have to.

2. Big or small wedding: How long your engagement is will depend on how long it takes to prepare for your wedding. If you’re dreaming of something extravagant, it’s going to take some time to put all of your ideas in place. Keeping your special day small and simple with just a few friends and family members would be the best thing to do if you don’t plan on being engaged for longer than six months.

3. Road blocks: There’s no rush to get married, especially if you or your partner have other priorities. For example, your love just started a new job and you’re in your last semester of school. Tie off any loose ends before jumping over the broom. You can get your life started together without saying ‘I do.’
