Default Packaging decisions...

Hey guys,

I've brewed an Oud Bruin for one of my best friend's weddings. It's smelling pretty freakin' great in the carboy right now, but I'm starting to wonder...

...how should I package this?

I would really like to package it in 375mL Belgian bottles, corked and caged, of course. I just can't seem to find the bottles. Russian River packages their beers in them, but I can't get their beers here in IL, nor can I justify spending that much on tons of their beer. (Even though it's AWESOME.)

750mL Belgians are too big, because my batch size is around 4 gallons, before the cherries, and I'd like to have as little wasted as possible between the people in the wedding party.

Has anyone wax dipped 12 ounce bottles? If so, can you post some pics?

Or does anyone have any other ideas?

Thanks!
Amanda
