I’ve had the same questions!! I think that you should buy things that you like, but if you really want them to be sold, keep that in mind. If its something VERY unique to you and your wedding it may have a harder time being sold. 

 

example: I want to buy silver charges for my tables and i’m comfortable with that since I’m sure I’ll be able to resell them. I also want to DIY a yellow damask aisle runner, but not sure that will be as easy! 🙂

Just buy what you want and then cast a wide net after your wedding (post here, craigslist, etc). As long as you keep in mind that you need to price things competitively when you list them, you should be fine. My rule of thumb when selling things used is generally 50% of retail, give or take depending on condition. If it’s something new that was never used, it’s cool to price it higher. You will never get what you paid out of things.
