@grapeslice:  Promise I am not stalking you lol. Yeah my two best friend got marrieed last year – it would have been three girls splitting the price but with different venues, tables shapes, colors, etc – we just couldn’t do it.

I hate how this industry has us by the balls over ONE event. I can go to smartyhadaparty.com and SEE chaircovers for 2.25 – but when I get quotes locally they are 3$ a piece OR MORE. Gah.

I kind of just want to do it so I can ‘stick it to the man.’

this is an awesome idea, even if the ivory doesn’t suit everyone’s needs. you’re right, it’s ridiculous when so many people need the same things, for everyone to buy their own.

were you looking at linentablecloth for prices? i’m looking for runners, napkins, chair covers and sashes.

@grapeslice:  I am looking to buy 360 Ivory/Champagne Polyester napkins.  I have already bought 36 132” round chocolate brown tablecloths.  I was shocked to see the rental prices on everything as well!!  I bought our own plates, silverware, champagne glasses, and much more because it was a better investment to turn around and sell it to other brides for cheap.  The more stuff I end up buying I may open my own rental place! Laughing 

If you got the linens from linentablecloth.com then I would know where I needed to get the rest to match.  I would also possibly be interested in the rectangular Ivory tablecloths for the buffet and other tables we have.  Let me know what kind of prices you would be looking to sell your items for.  Thanks again!!

@grapeslice:  No problem!  We bought all our own linens!  I got 36 132″ chocolate brown polyester table cloths from smarty had a party… saved $2 on each one compared to renting!!! Then I can also sell them afterwards to another bride and make a little money back.   We also got 360 Ivory polyester napkins… I can’t remember the site right now but they were having a 20% off sale and free shipping so needless to say it was a steal!  Good luck with your wedding too!  I graduate in May with my bachelors and our wedding has suffered because of school and work.  You can do it!
