  1. ,Central IL United States

    I’m glad i ordered a sample, these bottles were much smaller than i thought. They’re larger than an air plane bottle. However, the filler inside was nice.

    Invitation In A Bottle Response:
    The Glass bottles are about 7″ tall and about 1.8″ diameter at the bottom. We have shipped millions of invitations with these bottles and we are doing this for almost 15 years. We have choose this size for our bottle invitations for multiple different reasons and is the perfect size for invitations. For those who are looking for bigger or different style bottles please check our Starfish Glow or Forever Invitation.

    We are not getting married until 2016, so I have started to look for unique invitation ideas. The bottle was perfect. The

  3. katie,NY United States

    From the first time I dealt with this company everyone answered my questions and samples were sent quickly. When I finally ordered all of my products they were sent in a timely fashion and secured so that all the bottles were not broken when I received them. Everything was great! I can’t wait to send these invitations out for my wedding!

  4. Anne B,Arlington, WA United States

    Received my sample invitation promptly and was very impressed. Placed an order for my wedding invitations.


    Wish I would have seen these earlier, great product and the sample was wonderful worth the price.

  6. Jamie Wozniak ,Buford , GA United States

    Could use a bit more sand, but I think I’ll be ordering!

  7. Angelina Gavidia,Mechanicsville , MD United States

    We are having a destination wedding and got shore message in the bottle they are small and cute. About the size of can but a bit taller. Would like different size option for bottles, but they’ll do just fine. The amount of sand and seashells is perfect.

  8. DB,Galveston, TX United States

    I ordered two samples 1 plastic and one glass. When I do order the invitations I will be ordering the glass one.

  9. Melissa B,Philadelphia, PA United States

    Unique invitation! Will be ordering; my guest from Brazil will definitely be surprised!

  10. Ms. Ray ,memphis, TN United States

    We ordered a sample bottle for our destination wedding invitations and we were very pleased with the sample. We will be ordering 150 bottles soon and can not wait to give them to our families. The description is exactly what you get!

  11. ,Chicago Ridge, IL United States

    Being able to order sample bottles in both the glass and plastic versions was a huge help to us. It certainly confirmed to us that the glass version is sooooo much nicer/classier (yes even though they will cost more to ship – $3.74 per bottle in box. (opposed to $2.74 for the plastic bottle.) It also gave us a good idea of the shipping box, although you can find those cheaper elsewhere.

    Actually seeing the bottle also pointed out one thing I was not to happy with. The entire inside of the glass bottle has a haze from the dust the sand creates. Something I didn’t think about, but I suppose that is inherent to the product and can’t be avoided – not a deal breaker.

    Another nice thing is that you get a true perspective of the size. I know the description lists the height/diameter – they are a little smaller than I visualized.

    The sample bottles arrived quickly, packaged adequately and overall I am happy that I ordered them. It answered a lot of questions for us.

  12. Steve Cronen,Deerfield , IL United States

    The samples were packed well but without any indication of which one was which. I am also a little concerned about the size of the bottles being a bit small. We’ve done a promotion using bottles before and they were slightly larger, 8.5-inches in height. This provided a slightly larger diameter too so the shipping label was easier to read and you didn’t have to “roll” the bottle around to read it. It was a concern of our post office and they also did not want us to use a much smaller label as they become hard for the postal delivery person to read.

  13. I Regina Robinson,Tampa, FL United States

    I love the samples and quickly decided that I wanted the glass bottle. Now the decision is to have these as a save the date notice or the actual invitation.


    It’s exactly what I expected. Great experience. Will order from them again.

  15. Dawn Lawrence,Milwaukee, WI United States

    The items were what I expected, but the paper selection was misleading. I think that if you can’t make a selection it shouldn’t be an option it should be greyed out and the customer should not able to select it. Also, it should be conveyed that the 2 day shipping days doesn’t include the days it takes to process your request.

  16. Brittney Preeo,Stockton, CA United States

    Ordered the glass bottle wedding invite. Came as discribed. Great shipping time! Adorable keepsake invite.

  17. Reizda Edwards,North Charleston , SC United States

    I love this invitation in a bottle but I order the Bottle Ocean Shores sample and I didn’t receive it. But I still love the idea and size of the bottle for invitation. Thank you 😊

  18. ,Nashville, TN United States

    Really liked the bottles! The plastic ones would be great for birthday invites and even weddings however the glass ones are awesome. We are considering using these for a corporation event we are producing soon. They make great keepsakes as well.

  19. Sara Ortiz,Naguabo, PR Puerto Rico

    I did like it

  22. Stacy Flores,Puyallup, WA United States

    My fiancé and I couldn’t be happier with the wedding favors we chose from Invitation In A Bottle. The personalization was exactly the way we wanted it and we can’t wait to share them with our guests in Mexico at our wedding. Excellent quality, great customer service and fast delivery. Who could ask for anything else? Thank you!

  26. Latrice Estell,Papillion, NE United States

    I love the sample!!! Although I do have more questions. First how is the packaging to address and send the bottle invitations out to my guest. How are the response cards packaged with the invitation? I would love to speak to someone to discuss this further so that I can personalize and order these invitations.

    Order including assembly and shipping now that I have seen the quality.
    ! It really helped to see the difference Between bottles.
    They were all nice, but the larger ones are worth it for the price difference. Very excited to add custom inserts

  30. Jazmin

    The bottles are perfect to play around with and test out some ideas. The sample price was great and the quality of the bottles is great. The order came super fast. I would definitely try out other samples.
