How To Clean Up At The End Of Your Wedding Day

Wedding day set up and clean up is like biking up a hill. Set up is the slow climb to the top, taking lots of effort to perfect every detail. Clean up is the exact opposite.

Here are my 7 tips to help you develop a clean up plan and ensure that it runs smoothly on your wedding day.
