Ok so we had to postpone our wedding and we have not set a date but it is looking like we may have to wait like 3 or more years to have it due too financial reasons. Is it bad that I’m still planning it out now? or should I wait to start planning again?

I would stop planning and focus on more important things. (not saying your wedding is not important) when the time gets closer, start planning again. we’ve postponed our wedding, and it was nice to take a break from all the planning!

@ohulani: I agree plus so many more ideas might be avaliable by then and you might want something completely different.

You should do what makes you happy! If you enjoy the planning, then go ahead. If you like to DIY stuff, that gives you plenty of time to gather ideas and work on projects without feeling too rushed. (keeping in mind that what you think you want now may change over time) If it stresses you out, then yes, maybe wait until it’s a bit closer to start planning again.

@mnhix: i would hold off on making any decisions like bridal party, dress, bm dresses, invites and overall theme and colours. wedding trends come and go and you may change your mind 3 or 4 times by the time the wedding comes around.
also, friends come and go, become closer, more distant, etc. i’ve heard so many difficult situtations regarding not being close to the moh or bm anymore and how to demote them. wait until the date is set and you are around 6-9 months out for that decision.
keep in mind, there is no harm in just looking online at beautiful dresses, decor ideas, colours, etc. just don’t solidify any decisions yet.

i think it’s fine to keep planning, just don’t book/buy anything 🙂 my wedding is also about three years away, and i am definitely planning still! just because it’s so far away doesn’t mean you aren’t allowed to get excited and plan your special day 🙂

I would stop any official planning at this point and wait until 18months out to start again.
However, there is nothing wrong with Pinterest wedding planning 😉

I’d wait to make any concrete decisions or purchases. But it’s fine to pin things or clip magazine pics in the meantime. I had a 1.5 year engagement and I’m sick of planning now, so save your big decisions and prolong your excitement!

I’d use this time to browse, see what’s in your area, gather ideas on Pinterest and the Bee, just get a general idea of what you want so then when you are in a better financial position you can go in and make your deposits and such faster.

I’d use this time to look for anything that interests you (decorating ideas, color scheme, etc…), brainstorm on things and that kind of planning, but don’t purchase anything that you may change your mind on later, like the dress…that should wait to about 18 – 12 months before your date because there are always new styles. But you can look at venues and then you can find exactly what you want, how much you have to save up to get it, and that far in advance, guaranteed to get whatever date you want!
