I am getting married June 5 2010, and am going tomorrow to meet our venue owner (who happens to be my fiance’s friend)…he doesn’t have much choice on centrepieces, but my fiance wants to book him…to make matters a little better i hope to find a different person to do the centrepieces IF i can, so I can compare the prices…The venue we’ve booked at said for a orchid flower submerged in a medium sized vase with a tea light, cost is $17. I would need 3 per table, it’s a bit too much to spend for each vase, seeing how i need 50 TABLES : (
PLEASE someone recommend any place that may have something cheaper? or may know any warehouses I can get the vases cheaper? I am attaching a pic of what I was hoping for?

Not sure if there’s a bed bath & beyond where you are, but they are advertising the 3 set vases for $19.99. If you got some 20% off coupons, that would be more like $16 each. :-
I also saw the vases advertised for $19.99 for the 3 piece set at orientaltrading.com
I’m not sure how much orchids cost, but you could get the tealights yourself at a craft store.

Go to michaels or any craft store. They usually have an assortment of vases and they are very cheap.

I second Michaels – also check out walmart for vases also.
If you sign up online for Michaels newsletter they will send you coupons every other week or so and you usually can save 40-50% of one regular price item and 20-25% of your total purchase.

I second IKEA, they have great vases for good prices. I bought mine there. Also, I remember seeing a post from another bee about how she got a lot of vases from the Dollar Tree for super cheap. Something like these might work for you:
Not sure how the quality is though.
