I would buy them and then sell them after the wedding! They are very popular and even if you only recoup half of the cost they will still be much cheaper than renting. $2/foot is the rental price, right? You can order them online for around $1/foot. Here’s one place that sells 25 feet (25 bulbs) for $28.

Is anyone looking to buy theirs and resell to me afterwards?!

I know this is an older thread but I just want to make sure I’m not crazy. My event decorator wants to charge $300/strand with a 3 strand minimum for a space that’s 66′ x 18′

Is that crazy? How many strands did you all use? I’m seriously considering buying them online and having them shipped over instead…
