The flowers will probably go home with guests or to a nursing home/hospital; everything else I’ll end up selling!

I’m not using candles though, just mostly stuff I could resell

Hahah, great question!

A lot of it, I sold or gave away (as far as decorations and such) though our spare room still has our centerpieces sitting in it in a nice box.  Hehe. 

As far as the ribbon and stuff, I kept it in a box to use for future craft projects, and even recycled some of it by bringing it over to my friend’s wedding I was a bridesmaid in and we had the same colors.

Im saving one table number, the seating chart, best wishes card, different paper products to make a book with them to look back on! flowers are on my kitchen table (my bouquet) I cant seem to toss it yet!

any leftover stuff I’m giving to a friend to use at her wedding..or she can toss it!

some brides here sell their left over product which is great for all!

Most of the stuff I’m planning on keeping and just repurposing. I haven’t decided much in the way of decor, but I won’t have a flower bouquet (it’s going to be kitchen utensils that I can use). If I have candles then I’ll just keep and reuse them. The stuff from the candy buffet will most likely get reused around the house and if I use fabric to decorate anything then I’ll just use it for craft projects later. I’m debating on what to do with my dress as I might sell it or I might keep it. We haven’t made enough solid decisions to really be able to know what kind of decor we’ll be using, so I’ll update later when I know more.

At all my friends’ weddings so far, I’ve managed to make off with a centrepiece! They have always been happy to see it go to a good home (who really needs 20 sparkly candleholders anyway?) and I get fun, sentimental decorations for my living room!

I plan on selling my exta products on craigs list – frames, lanterns, glass ware.

My sister made my BEAUTIFUL bouquet out of fake daisies, so I am definitely keeping it! I am planning on keeping most of my stuff and using it to decorate our guest bedroom…when Fiance and I picked out the colors for the home we are about to build, he told me I could paint the guest room a light yellow if I wanted so I could use my daisy stuff to decorate that room! I love him! Hehe!

i am planning on trying to sell as much as possible. I am going to put everything up for sale about a month before the wedding to get a head start.
