I’m feeling like an idiot asking to have these things explained to me. I was reading a thread the other day about take down of your reception and I had about a million questions. When your reception is over what do you do with everything?
What do you do with all of your rentals? If you rented chairs, linens, napkins, flatwear, vases, lights etc, what happens to them at the end of the night? Does the rental company come pick them up? Do you have to hold onto them until the next day? Will your reception venue allow you to leave them there until the next day when the rental company can come get them?
What about flowers… do you just throw them all away? If you don’t what do you do with them? Does your florist provide the vases they come in or do you have to rent those? Do you then have to hold onto those vases and return them to your florist that night or the next day?
What about all of your DIY stuff. Does all of that need to be broken down and taken home with you? Say your centerpieces are candles in jars or milk glasses with flowers do you just put all of those in a box and haul all of it home again?
What do you do with all of the extra stuff? Do you just toss all your extra programs, signs, banners, bunting, and general decor?
I feel so stupid not knowing or understand how this all works but I think if I know how much work all of this stuff is going to be and if it is going to be throw away it will help me prioritize whats truly a necessity and what I can do without.
