@jojabri:  Went and bought some large (stackable) plastic tubs with lids & handles.  As I finished a DYI I stored it in one of these appropriately labeled – Ceremony, Reception, etc.  Because they have lids and are stackable I just need a corner in the house.  Also you can see through the tubs so you know what is inside.

All of my stuff is in one room. It takes up a pretty large portion of the room. 

I love @Aussiemum‘s suggestion!

We have a 2400 sqft house for just two of us, with about another 800 in the basement. So space isn’t my issue. My cat on the other hand… I have to protect things from him. I use a bunch of Rubbermaid type containers and high shelves!

Same here.  I used boxes and bins that were labelled.  I organized based on element or table….ceremony decor, sign in table decor, cake table decor, photobooth stuff, food stations, guest tables, head table, bar area, etc.  

I further separated and organized all guest table reception decor based on the table number.  Since time was limited I put EVERYTHING (table number, place cards, menu cards, favours, candles, vases, etc.) that was needed for that specific table in a box.  That way when we went to set up we just had to unpack 1 box per table.  It worked really well.

Oh and you wont have your house back for a while!  I still dont and it has been months since my wedding.

Good luck.

Fortunately. . . since I’m living with my Fiance. . . all of my DIY stuff is being stored in my old room at my mom’s house. =)

@jojabri:  I must congratulate all of you DYI brides.  You certainly are doing heaps more than I am for my daughter.  Luckily our venue comes with a lot of the little extras like centre pieces, linens, chairs, chair covers/sashes etc.  I am just doing some personalised things.

Will post them one day when I have photos.

I am just getting started on my DIY projects but I will be using plastic totes with lids to be stacked down in our office away from little hands that can open them (I have a young child and run a home day care). I love the idea for the totes because you can use them after the wedding as well!!

Unfortunately, we live in a small apartment and our stuff was everywhere!!!… it was driving me freakin’ nuts…. i’m so glad it’s gone now, haha.  Some of it is back because i plan to sell it.

I love this post! I’m guilty as charged with leaving a trail of DIY stuff.

I have a dedicated wedding drawer now in our credenza. Makes it easy to reach, and whatever doesn’t fit in there goes in the spare bedroom closet (like signs or whatever.)
