Wedding Central

April 18, 2011

I’m sure you had (or have) one.

Mine just happens to be the living room.

Randy and I rent a small house with a total of five rooms – including the bathroom. Trust me when I tell you it’s nothing fancy (it’s very old and could stand a face lift); however, it serves its purpose. So many other people in this world don’t have somewhere to call “home,” so we’re quite fortunate.

Behold, Wedding Central:

That would be my bridal shower and wedding dresses hanging in the doorway. You also see two large storage containers with various items.

In this picture, you can see some wrapped presents,  and several boxes full of other random stuff (cardbox, jewelry, flower girl gifts, etc.). And one lonely plant. Haha! But, do you see that box all the way to the right? This one:

Organizing it was my midnight task Saturday while hyper on caffeine. It contains the beginnings of our guest boxes (separated by singles and couples), our stamps, invitations, recipe cards, table numbers and thank you stickers. All sections are separated by the flaps of cardboard boxes that were laying around the house.

I knew if I didn’t organize now – while the piles are manageable (HA!) – I would get overwhelmed as it got closer to the day. 🙂

What did you do to stay organized?
