Our celebrant is providing us with the vase…. i never thought about getting it etched… would that be the same as engraving? or is it different? do you think it could be done after it has sand in it? or do think it would be best if i asked for it before hand and got it done?

Hobby Lobby has vases with a letter etched into them. I thought they looked really nice and they are having a glass sale now.

We got a large block and 6 little glass jars for our ceremony

this is the block

these are the small jars

We are using 6 one for the officiant, one for me, one for my FH and one for each of my three sons.

We also made our own colored glitter sand. It turned out really nice and matches our wedding colors perfectly.

i got our main vase from hobby lobby when it was half off glass stuff – $10!! it is one with the letter on front – so got H for our last name.

the three (we’re using three – me, him, the minister/foundation) – “side” vases used to pour INTO the main i got from Dollar Tree!

the sand – michaels.

total:

main: $10

sides: $3.00

sand: $2.99*3 = $9.00

TOTAL = $22.00

as for etching – i bought “armor etch” from michaels (make sure to use a half off or 40% off coupon – it’s expensive) and “DIY’d” the side vases – put a “D” for his name and a “K” for mine. I made my own “template” by using contact paper and my cricut – but you could always just use a utility knife or craft knife to cut the contact paper out.
