Ya know, we didn’t think about clean up so much… which ended up being okay, haha. We all set up when we got there – BM’s, family, the venue (it was our stuff but they helped us set up). At the end, one of my BM’s and my aunt started putting everything away. They started early, and honestly, everything was basically done by the time we were ready to go!

My whole wedding is DIY but I am hoping for volunteers to set up/tear down. Worse case scenario we will hire someone for $100. I am renting a similar type of place.

@lambo:  This venue sounds so much like my venue! Are you in Florida?!

I was lucky bc I talked up our venue so much that people became interested in it, a trainer from my gym took her daughter and ended up booking the venue for May 2013. one day we walked about how expensive it would be to get a planner to set up and break down- we decided that they would set up my wedding and we would set up theirs! It totally worked out and it saved me $400!!!

What i am doing is talking pics of how i want everything set up and they can use it as a guide. 🙂

We were lucky and got to set up the day before, so we set up all the tables and chairs, tents however could not leave the decorations etc out because we were told at night there is a lot of dew so things would be wet. So in the morning my family and bridal party in tuxes finished the set up. I asked my Bridal party and family to help with the take down. We went back the next day to finish the clean up however we had a lot of DIY everything. My family ended up catering my wedding, thank goodness for that as the ‘caterer’ was MIA on rehearsal  / set up.

Your benue sounds just like mine… we have it the whole day of the wedding so I can get in as early as 8am to set up but then I have to leave after 2 hours to go and get ready so I will try to get as much done as possible with my family that will be there to help out also.  All we have to do atg the end of the night is take away what we brought in (not trash, they clean up the trash for us).
