@myvtwed:  Maybe send an email or ask who would be able to come early or stay after the reception and take down the decorations. have a plan or a picture/diagram of what goes whe (when decorating) and what goes where when un-decorating. Ask and make sure you know who is taking decorations and gifts (assuming they won’t fit in your car)

Then make an itemized list of the items, where they are going, and assign tasks (Jane: unpack vases, add flowers, hang streamers; Jim: fold chairs and out in Tom’s car; Cindy: pack vases and leftover food and put in MIL’s car) etc.

I went to a very DIY wedding organized this way and it was very easy to get things cleaned up. People were very happy to help and also to have a plan. The bride gave us the organized lists at the rehearsal dinner(along with a tiny gift: mine was a chapstick)  so there was no chance of us forgetting them at home.
