I am undecided as whether to rent my chair covers and sashes, or to purchase them and attempt to sell them afterwards….After researching numerous sites, I discovered that I would only save maybe $250 by renting, but then I have to deal with the return process….or if I purchase my own, I could attempt to sell them (ebay or whatever) and get some of my money back. Feedback please, especially from anyone that has already been through this decision.

I havent been with this process yet in terms of my wedding, as im getting married in July of 2010, but I own a restaurant, and we have table linen cloths there. From experience, I have realized it is much better to rent them! Not only do you have to worry about reselling them but you wont have to get them profesionally cleaned as well as putting them up for sale. You wont get much back when you put them on sale anyways.
When you rent them , you wont pay nearly as much as you will when you buy them! Youll also be able to choose from a lot of colors, same goes for sashes etc.

I purchased my chair covers and sashes (as well as my table cloths). I used polyester chair covers and table cloths, which can be machine washed and dried, so I didn’t have to pay to have them cleaned. The sashes really didn’t get dirty. The rental price is often nearly as much as what you would pay to purchase them. And all of these items tend to be in demand, so the resale price is not that much less than what you pay for them.
The only time I would recommend renting them is if you want a really weird color, which might be harder to resell.
