it’s crazy how you can buy wedding linens for the same price as renting.  (if not cheaper to buy)

Our quote was .50 for glassware as well.  The linens for our rental company are our 5.50, so those seem way over priced.  Our napkins were priced the same as yours.

Also, if you are having a quartet for the ceremony music, that is a good price.  If it’s an individual, I doubt that is a good quote.

Those look about average.  I always recommend renting if you can over buying.  Renting really is cheaper in terms of time + money.  

Rented linens come clean and pressed and ready to use.  At the end of the night, they are wadded up and shoved in a bag and off they go, you’re done.  

Purchasing linens, especially secondhand, you need to make sure that they are clean and stain free.  You may need to press them yourself.  Then at the end of the night, they get wadded up and shoved in a bag and then PUT BACK IN YOUR HOUSE.  You then get to sort them, clean them, hope the stains come out, press them and then post them in classifieds for less than half of what you paid, respond to a million emails that are not returned, finally find someone to buy them, arrange for payment, pack them up, ship them and now you’re finally done.

Rental is totally worth the extra cash.

Oh and racks depend on the size and type of glassware–the racks are the same size but the holes to put the glassware in are different–so coffee cups are 16 to a rack but champagne glasses or zombies may be 36 or 42 to a rack.  Plates are the same–you have to ask because it depends on the plate.
