Wishing Well Melbourne

Wed Jan 20, 2010 11:45 am

Ladies, I'm looking for a wedding wishing well in Melbourne, to hire or buy. I've checked out a few online companies and the prices are ridiculous! I can't justify paying $150 odd for something we'll use once!
Does anyone have any recs for places to hire, or alternately does anyone have one they'd be willing to loan ~ I'd pay of course ~ or sell?
Our wedding is a month away today!
Any help appreciated!

I'm not sure if you have one already and what kind of a budget/look you are going for - but my friends one was from lincraft. It was white and looked siimlar to those on the website above. It cost $30 in november 2009 (whether it was on sale or not, i'm not sure).

I'm not going to be spending much on my wishing well - I just dont see the point of spending too much on it.

My iwshing well consisted of a box bought from the reject shop and decorated in my theme colours for the wedding total of about $30 and everyone commented how nice it looked...we also put a hole for the envelopes.

And the next night DH and I ripped open the box and we never kept it as it was glued down

Thanks guys.
Carly, yeah I have seen that site, the prices arent bad... so I'm tossing up.
Joken31, I'll def check out spotlight, I never thought of it. Even if I get a raw timber/ board one and spray paint it white - I'm sure FH could do that and I could jazz it up with some flowers etc.
Manda, I will also check out the Reject Shop for a nice box as a second option. Ta!!

My box was painted and decorated so any box will do....a friend also made Bonny's box - I am not sure if she has a pic for it?
