    These ideas are great! I have so many of my wedding decorations stuffed in my closet, along with extra invitations and wedding favors! I admit – I am a HUGE pack rat and can’t ever get rid of anything, but I especially haven’t wanted to throw out stuff from my wedding day! I’ll have to look into these ideas rather than hoarding everything in my closet. Thanks for sharing!
