Lesson Learned #647: Prior to the wedding, calculate how much cargo space all of your decorations, centerpieces, crafting supplies, and estimated wedding gifts will require.
So remember how my little studio was stuffed with wedding junk? Remember how I moved the week before the wedding? Remember how much stuff I made for the wedding? Yeah, I would have done well to really account for all that stuff. Unfortunately, on the Sunday after the wedding we were left to figure out how we were going to load everything into our Xterra which was already full of stuff leftover from my apartment. *Side Note: Notice my liberal use of the term "our." That's the kind of stuff you can really throw around once you're married. What's yours is mine and what's mine is yours, baby! End Side Note.*
AnyXterra, here's a snapshot of what we needed to get from point A (the hotel) to point B (our house), via point C (our minimoon destination):
As they say, these things come in threes. Our first Uhaul trailer moved me from Norfolk to Durham, our second Uhaul trailer moved our wedding stuff to Durham, and then we rented a third Uhaul trailer this past weekend to move a dining room set we found on Craigslist. Mr. Palindrome can turn those bad boys on a dime now. We're so efficient, we're toying with the idea of opening our own moving business.
JK, Mr. Palindrome. Calm down.
Did you have to get creative in hauling wedding supplies?
