Macarons in bulk
I am getting married this Fall and have a few items left to plan, including the wedding favours. I was planning to give macarons as my favour because I love them so much! Where would I be able to buy macarons in bulk for not so expensive but that still taste great? (I have around 150 guests and am giving out 2 per person).
Thanks for your help!

Wild guess ... last year, at the Mutek Festival, the first evening party was sponsored by "Sid Lee" ( a design firm in Montreal) and they had a large quantity of Macarons; you could try contacting them and ask them where they got theirs.
Other than that, I would contact one of the few places that does them and ask for a quote (point G, Maison du Macaron, ... )

I know Gastronomia carries nice macarons in boxes of 72. The flavors are chocolate, vanilla, pistachio, lemon, raspberry, and coffee (12 of each). They also carry other flavors/brands in smaller boxes, but I prefer the standards. They are located on Richmond, 2 minutes from downtown.
