You could always talk to the store manager of dollarama and ask them to order them in for you. I have a link on my pinterest for cheap glassware I’ll find it and link you.

@wisher558:  +1 I think it’d be a good idea to see if Dollarama has what you’re looking for and then see if you can just get them to order you in bulk?

dollarama will sell to you by the case, you just have to ask. 

I don’t know where in Ontario you are, but there’s a store in Guelph, on the old highway to Kitchener that sells overstock restaurant pieces that’s open to the public (things from places that have gone belly up etc) can’t for the life of me remember what it’s called though.

I am guessing you got the photo off of Pinterest.

Using GOOGLE IMAGES SEARCH, I was able to find what looks to be the original here c/o Dream Design Decor out of Atlanta Georgia

I think it is GORGEOUS, but I’d certainly have concerns about both COST & SAFETY (that is a boatload of candles… and some places aren’t that jazzed about having just 1 on a table… so before you go down the road very far on this idea / project… I suggest you talk to your Venue)

To me, in the last photo, they look like tall clear shot glasses with a votive floating.

And I found this interesting Forum Discussion for you… that might prove enlightening on the topic of buying “Restaurant Glass” in Ontario… in particular the comments made by Bill Cunningham

Hope this helps,

@MsGinkgo:  many people give away their centre pieces. Each person at the table can take one. That will help eliminate many of the extras.

@xoxocheri:  but that’s A LOT of glasses – and I know that often the centerpieces don’t get taken anymore as so many people rent them.  People are afraid to (at least that’s been the experience with my friends)

@MsGinkgo:  This is true. Hm. A few weddings I have been to have incorporated the vase/centre piece giving in a game. Numbers under the seat signified how many of the pieces a person could take, etc. Since people sat in any chair they wanted at their designated table, they never knew that the card with the number was there until it was announced.
