Hi There!

I have my first "big" wedding that I am designing for. As part of my business, I am beginning to accumulate rentals + starting to build inventory to rent out. This wedding is wanting certain rentals that I really can't find out there and at a good price for their budget. (poufs, accent tables, lounges etc). Is it an option to purchase these for them at retail + then they just keep them? Do I have to invest in these as part of my inventory + then give them a rental price? Thing is, I really wasn't intending on investing on larger items like this since I do not have the storage space for that stuff.....and honestly I am not sure if these specific pieces have longevity since the styling is very specific to this wedding. any thoughts or suggestions on how to handle this? thanks follow event extroadinaires!

I find it helpful to network with other vendors in my area who offer those kinds of products which I do not want to purchase for my own inventory. I sub rent these items through this third party for a 10% profit off the rental. They do the same for my rental items not in thier inventories. This system seems to work well for us.
