Do you mean you’re looking to sell items now that you’re planning to use on Jan 1st, 2010?

I would say a little early, yes. People may change their minds between now and then. You may also be surprised to find that your vendors may want to purchase things you bought or even guests. I’d say I would be less likely to "buy" something now because it hasn’t even been used yet. I’d wait to see what it is like "as is".

Yes, I’d wait a little bit- October sounds like a good month- thats right around when I will be furiously shopping!

I would be cautious of "pre-selling" any wedding items. After my wedding, so many things were missing, dirty, trashed by a downpour, or missing parts or packaging. We had many very good vendors, but things got tossed around in the chaos. You might not be able to sell some things after the wedidng is over, so be careful about promising things to people.

I’m also thinking that it might be best to be able to use photographs from the actual wedding in order to sell things. It gives people a nice sense of how all the pieces can come together.

Besides, come January or February, you’ll find tons of brides looking to get ready for April and May weddings.

Your theme sounds beautiful!  Depending on when I get the ring I would be very interested in some of your decor.  Our tentative date is December 31, 2010 so I’ll definitely be looking at th time you’re posting.

You’re definitely an early-planner!

You should wait until your wedding date comes a little bit closer. What if the items get damaged in between these many months? Pictures would also be nice to see the products.
