you have a ton of stuff leftover? Much of this stuff is very taste specific (my table numbers, for example, that I spray painted gold, a few flower balls and a few ribbon topiaries that I spent months, MONTHS!! working on, but again are taste specific) and that I don’t want to throw away? Other things like my rehearsal dinner bouquet, totally trashed but sentimental wedding shoes….the list goes on. These things I don’t think could be sold, I don’t have the heart to trash them, they are too large or numerous or random to display (or are they??) and are just taking up space in the 2nd bedroom. So the questions is…
What did you do with all your leftover/sentimental wedding stuff??

Great question! Our stuff is in a spare bedroom too. I’m considering hanging our seating chart lol. It’s really nice and cost around $80 so I can’t bare to throw it away. I can’t part with my shoes either but I will never be able to wear them again.

If you have an attic, put it in a trunk and stash it away. You may be able to use it for a party or some other form of entertainment.

I’m getting married in 12 days and I have already sold about half of my wedding stuff for brides after me. I figured a lot of my things no one would want becasue I made them out of my own little brain, but honestly there are tons of brides out there who are doing the same thing as you even if you think it’s unique.
I would hate to throw those things away too, but it’s not like you are ever going to use them again. Sell it or toss it!

I voted “sold it all” because I’m about to ship most of my wedding decor, extra bubbles, vases, etc off this week. However, I kept 2 centerpieces(they aren’t made of flowers), my fake bridal bouquet, preserved my bouquet, kept a few ceremony items and I can’t bear to part with my wedding outfit. Just can’t sell it. I am really happy to have some extra cash and more space in the garage though!
Most of the things I kept are used as decor in our guest room. It works well. The other things, right now they are either in the guest closet or the garage. No where near ready to give any of that up!

Sold what i could, chucked the rest. If it’s not gone/used/sold within a year, it’s just taking up space and collecting dust! Most of it just got REALLY annoying after staring at it for a few months….

I voted “display,” but mainly I’m storing it. I’m planning on organizing a bunch over winter break (I’m in grad school…) so it takes up less room…

I voted other because I just went through our guest bedroom and cleaned out all of our wedding stuff, but didn’t throw it all away. I put one or a few of my favorite sentimental things into a large box and stored it in our spare closet. I didn’t keep it ALL, but I kept the things that I’m most proud of. I’ll probably blog about it!

I have tried to sell it but haven’t had much luck. So some stuff is displayed while the rest is currently in boxes. We do plan on having a garage sale sometime soon and we will try there.

stuff I felt I could repurpose I kept, but about half of it I’m trying to pawn off on my cousin who is getting married next year. can’t blame her if she doesn’t want any of my junk though. 😛

I want to send my dress, shoes, veil and clutch off to be preserved and boxed up – the dress takes up a ton of closet space and it will be so much smaller once it’s boxed. Still haven’t done that yet, but hopefully this winter.
I donated the glass vases from flower arrangements to Goodwill. Nothing wrong with them, but they were just plain glass, nothing special, and I don’t need a million of those for my house when I already have nicer ones.
I pressed a few flowers from my bouquet that I may frame or something later – but I threw out the rest.
I have a couple black and white pics on display at home, and my cake topper (a fairly discreet ceramic “love birds” from etsy) on display on my bedroom dresser.

Some things Ive saved..some have been thrown away. I saved one vase from our centerpieces, our custom cocktail napkins, our fun striped straws, a couple programs, a menu, the rest of our invitations, our OOT bags and welcome postcards, our table numbers are pictures of our pets and I have 5 of them at my desk! The vase is currently being used as a centerpiece for our table and the other things I am probably going to make a keepsake shadowbox of some sort!
