If you rent, you get to focus on happily ever after. The linen pros will take that bag-o’ dirty linens & make ’em perfect for the next bride.
If you bought them, now you need to work some magic to make them “new” again to recoup those funds. Taking them to a dry cleaner to get them in re-sell condition would defeat the whole purpose of saving – those pro laundering services would run you well over the initial $8 from buying online and take you to linen rental prices in the first place.
You or mom need to get thee to a washing machine, stat.
And it must be done quickly… leftover linens put the ‘ew’ in mildEW!!
Want to sell them?Wash ’em
Like, serious washing- the next bride wants them to be just as perfect as you did.
Those dad-gum coat hangers!!
And now you’re in the linen business, ’cause you need to find yourself a buyer.
The perfect buyer – you will want to sell them in a set, of course, instead of piecing together special orders.
And, you’ll want to find a local buyer; otherwise, you’ll have shipping costs to add to your list.
And remember, she wants a deal just like you did.
So, all that work you just put into them? You’ll be hard pressed to recover that sweat equity, because she wants to pay $8, too.
Otherwise, why not just rent them for $12-14?
Nah, I’ll just pay the extra $4 per linen and rent.
