I think that would mmake a great favor if your venue has the space to keep the milk cold untill lit was time to be served.

There are a couple of dairies around here that still use glass bottles. You would have to do some research in your area.

A quick google shows AB Dairy In East Providence uses glass bottles.

Here’s a link to Dairies that use glass bottles: http://www.mindfully.org/Plastic/Dairies-Glass-Bottles-Milk.htm#1

Such a cute idea. I saw an add on craigslist for similar jars for the milk i would look there.

I think that idea is really adorable but maybe not so practical. Milk needs to be refridgerated..what if someone has a significant drive between venue/hotel/home? I’d feel obligated to drink it right away or something to not let it go to waste… but may not really want to depending on the time, how much I had to eat at the reception, etc. I like the cookie bar idea better and you could have milk available then…but it sucks that that doesn’t seem like a viable option for you. Sorry if this isn’t too helpful an answer.

Maybe not so practical/economic… but if you could pull it off and within budget… consider me envious! What a cute idea!

That’s an adorable idea! Me and my Fiance met while working at a Movie Theatre in our hometown, so we decided to do popcorn as our favors(:

I think it’s cute, but definitely don’t assume that your venue will let you use their fridge space.  We briefly considered using a DQ icecream cake as our groom’s cake, and got pretty much a flat out NO from our venue when we asked to put one teeny cake in ther freezer.  I’d definitely check before you get your heart set on this ๐Ÿ™‚

Are most of your guests going to be local? If I’m driving more than 30 mins back to my house I don’t know if milk would be the easiest to transport. I don’t know if guests staying at hotels would take them either.


I think it’s cute, but I’m not so sure about the logistics of it.
