I saw a wack of them at chapters around Christmas.  Maybe check it out or go in and talk to the manager about how you can get some?

Have you considered avalon bottles? They’re great, they sell them everywhere here, hell I think I have some in my cupboard. You buy the milk in them here at the grocery story and pay a $1 deposit and it’s yours! Then you could refund them after the wedding. They’re based in Delta (suburb of vancouver) so look here to see where else they sell in western canada: http://www.avalondairy.com/

Here’s a picture of what they look like: http://sqwabb.files.wordpress.com/2013/09/avalon-02.jpg

You could try contacting avalon and see if they will do a special order of just the bottles for you? And there wouldn’t be any cross-border shipping charges or duties!

Hi @Cynderbug:  I wish you good luck in your search (I don’t think the Ikea ones look half-bad)

If you don’t mind the logo’s (or you could find a way to cover them) the Starbucks Frappuccino Cold Coffee Bottles look a lot like a Pint-sized Milk Bottle.

I hear you on the costs of buying things in the US and getting them sent here…

It is a combo of a lot of bad factors:

Current Exchange Rate (Cdn Dollar is at 0.89 US today) and has fallen over 5 cents in the last month !!

Shipping is EXPENSIVE… more so if you are dealing with something that has substantial weight

and

If you buy from the US you also have Duty & Taxes to deal with.

Uggh.

I hope you find a workable solution for what you need  ** fingers crossed **

The starbucks logos on the glass bottles here are stickers.. are they stickers there too? No need to cover them if you can get them off.
