Who's helping you wrap things up?

Someone has to make sure your cards and gifts, decor, guest book, etc. all make it back to you after the wedding!! Do you have a specific person on gift duty or clean up crew? Is someone prepping your honeymoon suite or in charge of taking your dress or bouquet to be preserved?

Who's helping you wrap things up once the party's over?

    Our DOC will handle pretty much everything. She will pack everything up and load gifts and decor into the designated vehicles.

    Our DOC will be handling clean up. I'm sure she and my mom/sisters will be loading up anything to take home.

    MOH will have her mom and uncle in charge of set up and break down. Also there is a bridal suite at the venue so my things will be collected from there and transported back to my hotel.

    I plan to ask my friend/co-worker to help me. There may be other people with other duties, but I haven't worked out the details yet. I don't want to put that on immediate family members, because many of them have family of the bride/groom duties!

    Our DOC, her assistant and my parents will mostly be helping with that. I am sure that FH's parents will pitch in when they can but my mom has been planning on it for a while. My DOC thinks it will be mostly her and her assistant but I know my mom better than that. also putting one of the bridesmaids and one groomsman on clean up of altar duty to help my officant.

    Gifts will be taken care of by my sister or my parents. Clean up duty is wedding planner & the venue has their own cleaning crew that comes in.

    I COULD NOT have functioned without my family, particularly my mom, to make sure all the decor & gifts made it out of the hall after we left! My bridesmaids also helped a ton. My MOH handed out the tips, and my husband's aunt & sister took care of the flowers. We got married 2.5 weeks ago and I still have to pick up all of the leftover stuff from my mom's house.

    This will probably be our wedding venue coordinator and my aunt since our parents will be staying at the hotel also

    My parents and cousin are taking care of the clean up for us, while my aunt takes care of storing my dress for me.

    Most likely my MOH! If not, my mom or just FH and I! Can't imagine who else would.

    I'm hoping we can at least get a DOC and if all goes well and we get one, it'll will be through them. If not, all hands on deck! lol as far as like our wedding party and maybe parents.
