Are you getting married? Or have you just gotten married and you’re up to your elbows in wedding gifts? Planning your wedding and all the parties around your wedding, including engagement parties and bridal parties, can be one of the most exciting periods in your life. It’s a time when family and friends shower you with gifts and sometimes the amount of gifts can be overwhelming and storing wedding gifts can be a real challenge. It’s also a time when two households come together, resulting in two of everything, from furniture to kitchenware, and everything in between.

Since many newlywed couples spend a big chunk of their savings on the wedding and honeymoon, purchasing a new home to store all of these great items is often something that’s not going to happen right away. But until that time, the clutter can be daunting, especially if you are living in small quarters like a Manhattan apartment or studio. Or, you might be living with parents until you can afford to purchase a home and feel uncomfortable taking over someone else’s space with boxes and boxes of your gifts and packed-up items. That’s why many couples chose self storage as a viable option to store and organize their wedding gifts until they can move into a larger space or their first home.

In New York, it makes the most sense for a newlywed couple to use self storage. What newlywed couple living in a small NYC residence has the space to store china settings for twelve, an extra couch and half a dozen crockpots? Some parents are nice enough to let their adult married children store their huge pile of boxes in their garage, but after a couple of years, many say, enough is enough. Don’t be surprised when parents demand their children to either make room in their own apartment or rent self storage unit.

That’s why many newlyweds are glad to use Gotham Mini Storage in Manhattan to store excess wedding gifts and duplicate items and furniture.
