Wedding Supplies - Cheaper to Buy Than Rent? Mason Jars, Rocks Glasses, Plates, Flatware
Anyways, in the last month we've gone to a few rental stores to checkout what they have and what their prices are like. Most of them are very similar in price. Through some quick research, we've realized that it seems like we may be able to buy many of the food and drink related things for cheaper than it would cost to rent for the night. I understand that everything will be dirty afterwards, but the plan is to see if their is a local non-profit that would like to come and take all of the stuff away for free after the wedding. Better than renting some used crap, right?
Has anyone else done this before? I'm wondering if anyone has any good suggestions? Are there any restaurant supply wholesalers out there that I should checkout or do you think it's better to go with the likes of Walmart?
Here's what we're currently looking for. We're not sure on totals yet but lets just assume it will 200 of each for the time being.
8 oz mason jars
16 oz mason jars
Rocks Glasses - 8 - 10 oz
Flatware (Dinner fork, salad fork, spoon, knife
Dinnerware (10" Plate, 8" Plate)
Any and all help is greatly appreciated. Thank you.
