    Default Sweetie Buffet

    Hi ladies!

    I'm hoping to make a sweetie buffet for my wedding but I am struggling to find large glasses for the sweeties, more specifically martini and wine glasses.

    Has anyone found anything to that sort? Or something similiar?

    Hello! I am planning the same too. I was thinking that I might buy martini/cocktail glasses to fill with the sweets, then I can keep them to make cosmos in after hehee

    Also use vases and bowls etc. I think you can hire big martini vases, but will take a lot of sweets to fill them!

    I'll prob hit ikea for some inspiration

    Try the Buy and Sell threads on wedding forums as they seem to be popular. Couldnt find any on Ebay though!

    I am planning on searching the Charity Shops between now and my wedding for different sized vases / glasses / sweetie jars.

    I also saw some pics of weddings where they used cake stands - might be another idea for you?

    Country Baskets @ Blochairn sell the huge glasses, there is also a sweet cash & carry beside them called Hancocks, think you can get a day pass for the sweet cash & carry and its only 1. Country Baskets you will need someone with a card to get you in.

    Keep an eye on Asda - & Tesco in particular - they sometimes have good stuff.
    Charity shops are great, but it takes a long time to build up a collection.

    Some florists may hire out, Ikea is good, or maybe you have a market hall nearby - some of the stalls do well priced glassware.
    If Au Natural are still about - they were always good for vases etc, or if you're feeling flush, department stores. Oooh - Dunelm Mill too - they have an online shop you could look at.

    Amazon, Gumtree, Ebay, bridal forums - or keep an eye out at wedding fairs - some suppliers may hire only if they're asked
    If all else fails - glass fish bowls?

    (We do have a selection of vintage/modern glass vases/bowls/cakestands to hire for candy/cake buffets too!)

    I hope this has given you a few ideas
