kayvee:  Doesn’t it say in the instructions how much water to add to what volume of water beads? If you already have them and your wedding is in July 2015, you have plenty of time to try it and order more if necessary.

Do they sell small quantities at a craft store in your area?  Maybe buy a small pack to test and calculate based on that?

kayvee:  This really sucks lol I got a couple big bags and I think they measured them in grams (?) so I still am not sure I have enough- I’m praying. 

I’m tagging in case anyone has answers– I tried to buy some and try it but it wasn’t super effective.

kayvee:  I’ve never seen a place that sold them by quantity like that before. I looked at several places before I ordered mine, and its always gone by cups and grams.

^^ That is where I ordered mine from, and 12 of those bottles filled up around 34 of these vases. I have no idea many beads were in each one though. =/

5g packs of stardard water beads make approx 1/2 litre once expanded. Do you know the weight in grams?
