After dividing the bins according to the area, now fill the bins with piled-up objects accordingly. While packing, keep in view the delicacy of the objects. Separate the decors with bubble wraps and paper towels. These will help to save the decors from any damage.

Write on paper and scotch the inside the bin so that anyone can easily read and know where it will go. Scotch the list of the decors that are placed inside the bin. Mention the number of each object on the list,i.e., 12 candle holders, 3 vases, etc.

Non-transparent bins

The method of writing is the same. But mention on scotch tape instead of paper where these items will go. Don’t forget to scotch the detailed inventory list inside the box.


The next most important but sensitive point is that you have to arrange transportation. For safe delivery to the wedding venue, you can contact any goods transportation service for having a truck. If you don’t feel convenient with the truck, then cars will also go fine for transporting wedding decors to the venue.
