How to Find The Joy In Wedding Planning Again
- Take a Break From Planning: Try to take a break from wedding planning for a while. Pamper yourself. Spend more time doing things that will make you feel better.

Please focus on the good things about the postponement. It is not the end of the world; after all, you will still get married to the love of your life. That’s the most fundamental thing. Your life together is beautiful, as is your unique love. So keep that in mind while you start making new wedding plans.
- Make New Plans: Accept the changes and appreciate the fact that the wedding will hold in the future. Start looking forward to a new date. Revisit your old plans if you have them written down somewhere. Take time to review what you want for your significant. Speak about the likely new date with your fiancé, book an event planner, and start planning towards your new date. Never allow the postponement to affect your new wedding plans.
Finally, yes, a wedding postponement is quite overwhelming—lots of money spent and plans put on hold, and the emotional trauma that comes with it.
