Bride #4 is desperately seeking 110 glass bottles so she and her fiance can bottle up her grandmother’s homemade cordial as wedding favors for her guests. She’s having trouble finding ones that don’t break the bank. Can you help?

    Bride 3: Have you looked at Montsalvat? We got married there and i would class it as rustic, especially the Great hall where the reception is held. Also the best food I’ve ever had at a wedding, gorgeous open fireplace for cooler weather weddings, stunning gardens.
    Bride 4: Something like this? You might not be able to see the price but they are .75c each and 200ml.
    They do also have larger bottles

    Gala Imports are a wholesale company but you might be able to get a friend with a food business to sign up for you or if you are in Melbourne let me know I might be able to help you out.

    Hi Bride Number 4! I would go to coffee shops and ask for their empty syrup bottles. They go through them very fast, and without their lables they are beautiful glass, fairly ornate bottles. We used these from my sister in law’s coffee shop for a friend’s wedding, and I’m planning on serving beverages in them for my own wedding.
