Using Self-Storage for Wedding Planning

You said yes! Now what? Time to plan your wedding!

Planning a wedding, regardless of how big or small, can be very stressful. Utilizing a storage unit during the planning process will save you some stress and keep the clutter out of your home so you can focus on enjoying your engagement.

Here’s some suggestions to keep the process as smooth, stress-free and affordable as possible:

Wedding Planning: When you’re planning your wedding keep everything in a central location. If you’re buying linens, fake flowers, chairs, or doing DIY wedding projects like center pieces, keep them all together so you know exactly what you have and what you need to get. You can even have your gift registry delivered to your storage unit.

Booze It Up: Open bars can run up to $7000 depending on where you are in the U.S. If your venue allows it, you can save some money by supplying your own alcohol. If you are having beer, wine, or spirits at your wedding reception, figure out how you want to serve it and buy a new case every few weeks. If you are supplying beer, think about having kegs and serving the beer on tap. Store the beer and wine in a STORExpress wine storage room.

1 Wedding, 7 Parties: Many people forget about the celebrations leading up to their big day. With all of the pre-wedding celebrations, you will receive of a lot of gifts to celebrate your engagement. Store all of your presents in a storage unit until you’re ready to sort and move them into your home.

Keep Your Dress Under Lock and Key: Literally. If you’re worried about your future spouse, family and friends sneaking a peek at your dress before your big day, storing it in a climate-controlled storage unit can keep it away from prying eyes.

Shacking Up:  Blending two houses is not easy. Use a storage unit to store duplicates of items like beds, sofas and dining room furniture.
