To buy or to rent?

Sometimes it can be better to buy items for your wedding even if you can rent them. For example, I have been checking linen prices lately. Chair covers go for about $3 plus for ONE chair cover. When you have 100 people  like I do that can get expensive really fast! Thank goodness though my awesome mom found chair covers on craigslist from a couple who were recently married. They sold us their chair covers for 2.50 per cover. We save .50 per cover just by buying them instead of renting. That's a 50 dollar savings! It gets even better though! After the wedding is over we can resale the covers instead of just giving them back to the rental company. It's almost like getting free chair covers in the end!
