I think you should give your florist the vases so the transporting of all the elements for the center pieces are all together. Ask your florist but I don’t think there should be a charge.  Definitely if you buy the vases through them, there would just be the cost of purchase vs. rent but not an additional set up fee.

I didn’t do this, BUT I would guess that you would bring them to your florist before the wedding so they can set everything up.  I dropped a bunch of stuff off at my venue before mine – table numbers that i had put into special frames, favors, card box, etc. and they set it all up – so I would imagine the florst would do the same thing if you had your own vases and candles.

I purchased my own containers for the ceremony arrangements and just dropped them off with the florist the week before the wedding.

We were going to originally providing some of the materials for our centerpieces and our florist wanted them dropped off ahead of time. This is very helpful since they actually have the giant moving truck and everything. They probably included a setup fee but this is included whether you provide your own materials or they provide their own since they charge a separate rental fee.

Will your guests really take home the tall vases? Our florist said that the tall vases can get very very very heavy, especially because they are filled with water, so it will be tricky taking them off the table and home. Your guests may have to wait around for the florist’s cleanup crew to come and take them down. If you had lower, lighter centerpieces, I can see your guests actually taking them home.
