    I would love to rent things like vases that I will not use again.

    I am going to be buying about 12 vases, 2 of which I may keep for my home but the rest will be sold. I think the idea of renting things out is a great idea.

    I also like the idea of selling custom designed items. I love DIY myself so I wouldn’t have any need for it, but if I was a bride that didn’t like crafting or just didn’t have the time, I would love to have an option for a custom designed item that didn’t break the bank.

    There are event rental companies that do just that.  Some have vintage, one-of-a-kind pieces, too.

    In Portland, there’s even a woman who has organized a wedding library where people can borrow vases, candle holders, etc. for free!

    If you have the options to rent the ones you will not need in the future, then I’d totally go for it.

    It really depends on whether it can be cheaper to DIY.  You could sell it to another bride and it wouldn’t be wasteful.  Then you get the chance to do it with friends and family.  But, if you don’t care about it, and have the budget, go for it!

    I’m not sure there would be much of a market for used candles.

     Vases etc are already available at party rental places.

    There are many craftspersons making personalized items on Etsy.

    Renting is a great idea and many businesses already offer those services (rental companies, florists, bakers, etc). I don’t know that I would rent something that was custom though since it doesn’t make alot of sense. If it is custom, then it would only fit your wedding, not someone else’s. Some things are not rentable because no one wants seconds of certain things, and you’re better off buying new in those cases.
