I purchased a dozen 16″ tall vases for around $60 plus shipping…planning on resale at around half price after my wedding…I would spend less then rental in the end!

Looks like you have a pretty design in mind! I would say go for it! I am not married yet but I know I will be doing this so I can spend an little extra money on our honey moon…wedding planning makes you need a vacation lol.

I am planning on using bloomsbythebox.com to get my flowers (because my cousin used them and it was great) and I found my vases on etsy (super trendy) at a local antique shop. I was really surprised to find those, but so greatful that picking out vases is overwith!

I got most of my silk flowers from http://www.afloral.com and I was happy with them. The roses look fantastic. I like the full dome pomanders a lot more than the half ones which just look a little weird to me.

I ordered all of my vases and stones for my centerpieces from the dollar tree online and I ordered submersible LED lights for VERY cheap from http://www.100candles.com. No one will know that my vases came from the dollar tree! Basically, my centerpieces will be a vase, 1 pack of stones, water, a purple submersible LED light and a single large orchid bloom floating, all on top of a mirror plate that we are renting for $1 each. Overall, they cost $10.50 each and they look really cool with the light thrown around from the stones and mirror!

if you haven’t already found what you are looking for you could try craft stores like Hobby Lobby or Michael’s who have there vases half off or 40% coupons available.  Online there is efavormart like someone mentioned…its cheaper than save-on-crafts (their shipping is outrageous).
