    If you’re trying to cut costs, then I would go with the clear vases.  Those centerpieces are just as nice and it sounds like you’d save money.

    I love the second one, it looks really good. Plus you will save money and you can always switch things around. I opt for the second one. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I thnk either option will look good, it just depends on your tastes.  Think about it this way, you won’t be seeing that much of your centerpieces that night, it is mostly for your guests to admire – do you think they will really mind if you have clear vases with ribbons instead of milk glass?  I doubt it.  Stick with the clear vases and keep your budget open for more important things! Don’t get too caught up in the details – either  will look great, so you might as well save yourself the money!

    We are doing milk glass for our centerpieces along with other mismatch colored glass vases in various sizes.  It has been a bit of a chore finding all of them and my old room at my parents’ home is filled with them! But it was a lot of fun finding new different ones and we found a great antique mall that sold me a lot for $1-3 a piece.

    But you get the others for free and they look great!  If you are truly worried about budget and you won’t regret not using your original idea, I say go for the second ones.

    If you are wanting to use milk glass I know I saw a tutorial on here for making faux milk glass….why not use the free vases to make them look like milk glass so you can save money by using the free vases and still get the milk glass vases you are wanting

    Just a thought, but if you’re borrowing the clear vases, you might want to make sure that there’s someone on lookout for guests taking the centrepieces home as a gift. You’d have to figure out a way to make it clear that the centrepieces are not a give away as they are at a lot of weddings.

    Another suggestion, have you checked out your local Freecycle group? It’s a Yahoo Group and I’ve gotten TONS of stuff from my group (as well as given)! It’s amazing! Oh and Craigslist has a free section as well. Plus yard sale season is just about here, so you might be able to score some great vases for a good deal. I know I’m on the hunt for silver teapots for my own centrepieces!
