In our last post we shared our thoughts on setting up and decorating on your wedding day. It’s fitting for us to dedicate todays post to cleaning up after the wedding and reception. As a bride, you’ll be leaving the cleanup to family and friends but there is still some planning that you’ll need to take care of.
Your Cleanup Responsibility
As a bride or groom, your wedding responsibilities include: getting married, and enjoying the party. Once the party is over you should jump in your car and drive into the sunset! Although you won’t be cleaning up after your wedding, it is your responsibility that you make sure it will be taken care of.
What to Expect
The cleanup responsibilities will vary depending on your situation. Are you using a reception center or having a backyard wedding? Does your reception center include cleanup in their prices? Make sure you know what is expected of you before you approach the wedding.
Even if you are using a reception center that includes cleanup you will need someone to take your wedding gifts, return rental equipment and cleanup any personal items that were used for the wedding.
Who Should Help
Cleanup is something that should be taken care of by your family, bridesmaids, and groomsmen. Be sure to ask your loved ones to help. Make a list of what needs to be done and put your most trusted loved one in charge.
Once you have done your part, trust that your loved ones can take care of the cleanup. Get married, enjoy the celebration and don’t stress! Enjoy your wedding and have the time of your life!
