Celliaanne:  It depends on the extent of your decorating. If you keep it simple, are very well organized with plans showing the layout you want, pictures if you are having centerpieces with several components, everything boxed in easy to carry milk crates and well labelled, it won;t take that long.

If you have complicated backdrops, ceiling draping, lights or lanterns strung across the ceiling etc , it can take longer.

Some venues let you have access the day before if it is not booked by someone else.

What do you have planned for decor? What is your venue like?

I booked a venue that includes decorating and linens, it was a HUGE deal to the fiancé and I. We wanted to make sure our families and friends get to enjoy the day. I was MOH for a DIY wedding, and the worst part was decorating, and tearing it all down.

We have a day of coordinator who will be aware of everything that needs to happen as far as decoration/setup goes! It was really important  to us, we knew from the beginning we did not want to have to worry about doing any of that.

Celliaanne:  I recommend hiring someone. Find the money. You don’t want to have to worry about decorations of all things the day of!

My husband set up the decorations with my brother, dad and a few GM who volunteered to help while I was getting my hair and makeup done. We took down the decorations after with it parents and some family/friends who offered to stay and help. Our decisions were minimal so it took less than an hour to set up and about twenty minutes to tear down.
