While my wedding is still 9 months away, the decorations are starting to accumulate! What tips do you have for organizing them to make set up on the big day easier?

    I found organizing by event to be the most helpful. I had all welcome party items together, then ceremony in a box, then cocktail in another and finally reception. I labeled everything in the boxes and individual things wrapped. I had a destination wedding so I flew with a lot of stuff mostly frágil so we had to wrap it to protect it. Everything was label by event (ex: reception), the item it was and how many (ex: table numbers - 5) I was able to stay very organize while at home and once we arrived there.

    When the boxes started to seriously pile up I ended up taking everything out of their larger boxes and arranging by purpose. All of my candles/votives went together, while sweetheart table decor had another box, etc. Then I labeled each box clearly with a sharpie.

    The labeling was HUGE because we had a lot of hands on deck for set-up and people were able to quickly find items without having to ask me about the contents of each and every box.

    I am organizing mine by event and purpose.

    I have a tote for each event and when they are ready, they go in the correct tote.

    I had different boxes for each section. E.g the candy table had its own box. The guest sign in had it's own box, etc.
