hey fellow bees!
my wedding in going to be in mindtown atlanta and the theme is very old south, traditional, vintage…you get the idea. both our venues are in historical places (peachtree christian church on peachtree st and the georgian terrace hotel on peachtree across from the fox theatre) and we want a favor that goes along with our theme. we came up with the idea of using old fashioned glass coke bottles and on the backside putting a personalized label with our names and wedding date. coke started in atlanta and is very big in the south, so thats where we came up with the idea. o and the coke bottles would be filled, although now that i think it, empty original ones could be cool…
has anyone done this before or something similiar?
ive read on the boards how popular the edible favors are, so how does this compare?? like it or dislike, something different??
bees, i need your opinions!!

Go by there and talk to the manager of the gift shop. Also, welcome! We have a fun ATL brides’ corner..
How about using some for centerpieces too? You could for the rehersal dinner or in a grouping…could be very cute too! You could make them elegant with the flowers used..a cool nod to the ATL!

I think it’s a really cute idea, but definitely filled. Empty bottles (even if they’re vintage) will just look cheap to a lot of people.

what if you got tiny empty ones and filled them with candy? that could be really cute 🙂

I like the idea of old fashioned coke bottled (filled with coke)…that is a really cute idea! I love old coke bottles – and I love the ones you get for going to the Coca-Cola factory in ATL.

thank yall so much on your feedback, its really nice getting some other brides opinions!! i think we like doing the filled coke bottle idea but we did like the idea as well of putting candy in it (thanks vistagirl)! i think we might actually get both and just look at them in person instaed of just talking about it.
