I am thinking about buying linens (white chair covers, purple sashes, and purple overlays). I have kind of seen a wide range of prices and most “local” rental places just ship the linens in from somewhere else anyway. If you don’t mind sharing, what did you pay for each of these? I found a seller on the WB classifieds and just don’t want to get ripped off…
Also, do you think I would be able to resell these items?

I bought navy pintuck overlays on efavormart.com. I did not have a problem with them, but I have read alot of bad reviews about them. I was willing to take a risk considering the cost of buying overlays was less than half what I would have paid to rent them locally. I haven’t tried to resell them. My mom, Mother-In-Law, SIL and I now have a couple extra table cloths.

I only bought table linens for our rehearsal dinner, but I bought them used from another bride and plan on reselling. Have you checked out the classifieds to see if another bride is selling hers? That would help to keep costs down too. Try for local brides so you can save on shipping.

I bought mine a couple weeks ago from the classifieds here. I got a quote for renting them and it was going to be the same as buying them, so I’m hoping to sell them after I’m done to make a little cash, otherwise, I’m not really out anything. Plus, I bought satin tablecloths, and I would have ended up with boring polyester if I rented. Just bought the tablecloths, will still need to rent napkins (or find another solution). I’m not sure what kind of success other brides have with selling linens, but if you find a good enough deal, give it a shot!
