The set up of your venue? Decorations on your big day, removing all of it the next day?
I have two of my friends who will be their to assist in the set up and take down. Since I am buying most things, is has to be out that night...but something tells me the nice people at the venue would allow me to get my things the next day ;)
Friends for sure and family. I'm so lucky and blessed to have them. I'm happy for you gatewood, yay :o)
how are you both doing?
My Aunt is a/our florist and she & her employees will be handling all of that! We are sooo lucky to have her!
Some of my (male) family and friends and my MIL and friends mom and the DOC and Venue do it.
venue itself - the venue's DOC (I love him-Sidney is awesome!) is supposed to set up the centerpeices and small details. I will probably be ordering flowers and putting together flowers that morning - because flowers are barly in the budget.
The set up of your venue? - We are taking everything we can except our bouquets there the day before (our rehearsal day) and leave it all there.
Decorations on your big day, removing all of it the next day?
When we arrive early the day of, we will be able to setup some things and leave the centerpieces probably for the caterers to do. We don't have too much but enough to get everything set up in about 2 hours if not less.
It will be me, my mom, two sisters and possibly FMIL when she accompanies us. Not sure if my Aunt will arrive early yet.
As far as taking everything down - my mom, sisters, brother and probably the BM and GM, cousin, his GF etc will more than likely take everything down, put all of the items that we brought in boxes and take them back to our house.
DOC and immediate fam.
The venue DOC and my own DOC will handle it all. I'm so glad!
Its at home :) Whoohoo! and we get a deal on rentals because they can drop them off earlier in the week, most venues only allow day of. So we are setting everything up a few days prior! Not to mention we have been working on the space for a while now to make it as perfect as possible! ( I may con everyone who's at the RD to come help :)) then the day after we can all tear down! Works well for the control freak in me!
I have a week-of coordinator that will be doing all of that. I don't want to do it, and I don't want my mom/friends/family to have to do it either. They should be able to relax and enjoy the day, not run around lighting candles.
Our venue handles all of the set up and take down. I have a DOC who will oversee the setting up of the cake and table centerpieces from an outside vendor. Whew!
Unfortunately, we may not be able to get into the venue the night before, so looks like a team effort on the day of, I'm quite scared about it and about us being in a rush, but our wedding isn't until 6pm and we won't start pictures until about 3 so we should have from 10-3...ugh, does not seem like enough time! Oh well, it will all work out!
The venue, DOC, and florist... THANK GOODNESS!!!!
