@indibee:  I should, but since I went eclectic and nothing really matches, I don’t think that anyone would really want it.  I thought about donating some things to the church so they would have some things one hand.

@tksjewelry: That’s a sweet idea. Or even bringing it to the thrift store as a donation or a shelter that would need plates/glasses/decorations for their safe homes, etc.

I made sure i kept 1 favor for ourselves. The flowers we gave out to people to take home. The food was packed up and we had about a week’s worth of leftovers. Other than that, our caterer provided everything else, so we didn’t have much to take home.

Let’s see. 

-My dirty dress is still thrown on a rocking chair in our office.  I’ll get it cleaned one day. 
-My centerpieces are basically useless no anyone else now.  I had a family friend make table runners out of 75 year old barn wood, and then he attached 100 year old barbed wire to them and made a brand with our initials.  We plan to hang a couple up in our home, but probably will just toss the rest of them. 
-I’m trying to sell my square vases and satin sashes on Kijiji, but so far no luck. 
-We had a bunch of curly willow from the big arrangements so I stuffed those into a tall vase and put a red ribbon on it for Christmas.
-We had a huge copper mailbox for our guestbook which is currently housing the sheets that our guests filled out.  I read them and stuffed them back in the mailbox which we will eventually use for something.

i sold my centerpieces within weeks of my wedding but kept one for myself – it resides on our island in our kitchen. i also kept my cake topper and it sits on the guest bathroom counter. We had boxes of favors that people forgot or didnt care to take therefore my inlaws and closest friends got a bunch of champange flutes. other than that i dont have much left over – some bride to be sashes, a car decorating kit that was never used and small things here and there most of which i plan to hold on to since i have several friends on the road to engagement.
