I see these are Garden stores like Lowes and Gardenridge. They’re just for flowers so they’re quite common. I’ve even seen them at like, Kmart, since all the flowers are out. They aren’t cheap though since they’re typically made out of stone

Do they all have to match or are you open to having a variety?

If you’re fine with a variety, I would check places like HomeGoods, Marshalls, TJ Maxx, Michael’s, Hobby Lobby, etc.  You might even be able to find some that aren’t white and paint them yourself (you could even distress them like the one in your inspiration photo).

Also- if you are open to using the lightweight ones but are worried about them tipping over- you could always put some sand or stones in the bottom to weigh them down- also, you’ll probably have Oasis wet floral foam in them- and that’s pretty heavy when it’s wet, but doesn’t slosh around, so you’ll probably be alright (best advice- try it out and see how stable it is).

Great suggestions on the stores.

My advice is to find ones that can not only be cost effective, but also reuseable!  Something you could use as an elegant planter around the house or gift to the bridesmaids or MOB or MOG or grandmothers after the wedding!

It is actually easy to antique a vase.  I did that a few years back, and it was fun.

Just do your homework.  I think Jamili’s garden may be pricier than Loews or homegoods.  Definitely check out Hobby Lobby stores too (great prices on cutesy/artsy things) and Garden Ridge!

To save money, there is a DIY route. I bought my vases in bulk on this site: https://www.directfloral.com.

Then to give them that antiquey look, there is a faux stone finish spray paint that you can paint them with. http://www.google.com/products?sourceid=navclient&rlz=1T4GGIH_enUS265US265&q=stone+spray+paint&um=1&ie=UTF-8&ei=KI0ySoT6MaWaMvP8hIoK&sa=X&oi=product_result_group&resnum=1&ct=title. You come with a cost of maybe a few dollars a vase this way rather than buying them individually at tens of dollars a vase.

Some vases/urns that I think would look nice: https://www.directfloral.com/productdetails.asp?ProductID=453054285, or https://www.directfloral.com/productdetails.asp?ProductID=453057868, or https://www.directfloral.com/productdetails.asp?ProductID=453055522.

I have hunting for urns for months, but haven’t yet found ones I’m willing to buy yet. Some of the ones at usifloral.com were pretty nice, but not as expensive as the jamaligarden ones I’ve been coveting. Thanks for the help!
