I am buying a lot of my linens instead of renting them too

Wow that is risky, buying so much stuff to sell. Mind you i bought our marquee instead of renting and the one of my guests bought it and so it cost us only $300 as apposed to $3000 to rent.

Our total budget was only $10,000.

I had hydrangas and roses too, they were lovely, just picked from mum and a friends garden so were free!

Oh lordy, the first part is completely me although my timeline is more like 3 months ago vs. now. Where to draw the line at rent/purchase/DIY? How to value our time in putting all the DIYs together when there are a milltion other things that need to be done and you can’t pay someone else to do them.

I like your budgeting although I’ve found it it is hard to sell on Craigslist–haven’t tried on here. I hope it works out!

omg you’re my hero! I would love to have Chivari chairs at our wedding but it’s out of budget.  I didn’t think about buying then selling them. Btw, where did you store the Chivari chairs after buying them? Were you able to find a buyer? How did you deliver them as rentals to the venues? Sorry just trying to wrap my head around the logistics before I consider this.
