@Akbridezilla:  Have you tried visiting Michael’s? Their websites are crap at listing inventory, but I know for sure I’ve found both fish bowl vases (usually in the floral section) and Swarovski crystals (in the beading section) at Michael’s. And you can usually snag a 40% off one item coupon too.

@Akbridezilla:  widen your ebay search to include floating candle bowls aswell as fishbowl vases. might help a bit. also – if your not fussed about them being Swarovski, search for flat back gems.xxx

I bought those exact bowls (flattened fishbowls) at Michaels for my nieces wedding.  The crystals are there too–in the jewelry section.  You can also find them online through Ebay.

Dollar Store for sure. Try Tradesy or one of those secondhand bridal sites? Sometimes they have decor-type stuff for really cheap.

Dollar stores for the vases, hands down.

Ikea might be worth a shot, too . . .

I lucked out and found my bubble vases on kijiji (it’s like craigslist) a bride who married had them left over.  Maybe try some classifieds on bridal magazine sites as well.

i think Koyal also had some.
