I have seen some vases at the Dollar Tree, but they’re not really my style.

We got our vases at thrift shops for $.25-$2.00/each. They’re mostly ivory ceramic or silver. My fiance doesn’t like clear vases. We’re putting 3 large hydrangeas each, which is running us $7. This is the general style (in fact, this is one of our “vases”):

I have also seen relatively cheap vases at Pat Catans (if you have one in your area) and Hobby Lobby (especially with a coupon).

ETA: What kind of vases are you looking for?

Depending on how many/how long you need, I just went to Micheals every time I got a 40%-50% off coupon in the paper. Sure I made a few trips, but in the end it cost me half of what I would’ve paid for.

You can also try Ebay (there are places that sell vases in bulk) or save-on-crafts.com

I live near the Libbey Glass factory, and they have a glass factory outlet nearby as well.

I went there a few weeks ago and I found cylinder cobalt blue vases for $1 a piece in the clearance section! 

However, before this I bought other vases, which we might not use now that I found the perfect blue ones. I bought these other vases at my local Goodwill! 

Here are the goodwill ones. 

They all ended up being about 1-2$ a peice. I found them at two different goodwills. They happened to have a BUNCH. It seems like this vase is a common shape. 

 

Good luck though!

I have been using a thrift store near my house. 

I go in and get like 5 books, 4 frames, and 5 vases and only pay like $15 dollars.
Then I just go back every couple of weeks and they have more!

Dollar Tree! I’ve bought a couple for past events and they looked great and hold up well.

As a pp said, check in your area for a glass factory. I scored some ridiculous deals at a local glass factory’s outlet store…it makes buying in bulk easy on the wallet, and it’s worth a 1-2 hour drive… I also used the dollar tree’s cylinder vases and AC Moore has a vase I fell in love with to hold our rock candy decor that I’ve been scooping up one at a time with the 40% off coupons.

We got some cylinder vases at Dollar Tree, and I also scoured my local Goodwill stores every week or so–they had so many vases priced at $1-$3. I decided to do 3 different sizes of cylinder vases, so I got the 7″ ones at Dollar Tree and collected the 9″ and 12″ vases from Goodwill over the course of a year or so! I think I ended up one or two short, so I got those with coupons at Michaels.

I got mine from former brides on Craig’s List for VERY cheap.
