    More Questions

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    Invitation In A Bottle

    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.

    You can't go wrong ordering the sample bottles

    ,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.

    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!

    Smaller than i expected

    ,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.

    Great product

    Mollie Lightman,Surfers Paradise, Queensland Australia

    The message in a bottle looked great, although, probably from being shaken up in mailing the inside of the bottle was very dusty. Not sure if this was because it stuck to the plastic, maybe glass would be better, but I guess that’s to me expected with sand in a bottle! Still ordered my wedding invitations the same! 🙂

    Sail Away message in a bottle sample

    Brittany Gallagher,Pitman, NJ United States

    Love the product, fast shipping. I ordered the sample so I could see and experience exactly how my guests would experience receiving my invitation. However, there was no option to send the invitation besides how the company chooses. I wanted to see how it would arrive the way I wanted to purchase it. For example, I wanted the plastic bottle and for it to be sent with the postage via the company. I received the plastic bottle as requested but in a box with the label/invitee’s name on in which was shipped in a plastic bag type envelope. I wish there was an option to receive the sample EXACTLY how my guests would revive it.
