One realization when you’re planning a wedding: You’re spending a ton of money on one day. It’s natural to want to buy everything. That makes it an investment, right? Not entirely. While it may be tempting to purchase everything (on sale, of course), sometimes it’s actually a better value, less expensive, and a lower chance of a major headache to rent your wedding supplies. The number-one question to ask yourself: Will I really use this item later?

To help you figure out when to throw down your credit card and when to sign a contract, Brides asked top wedding experts, including Amy of course, when you should buy and when you should rent!
