I can’t say it’s exact, but I know I’ve seen some interestingly shaped tall glass vases/urns at Target.  They’re sort of knock-offs of the more expensive versions you’d see at Crate + Barrel, Pottery Barn, etc. but they would still do the trick if it’s the interesting shape you’re going for.  If you live near a Target, check out their housewares to see if they have something similar!

weren’t there some similar to this recently in the classified section?  i think they may have been limited as to where she would ship, but you might want to look there.

The vase looks like a reversible hurricane.  It’s designed so you can either use it as seen in your pic, or flipped over so that it’s a shallow bowl on top of a long stem. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find much online in a quick search–just this one from the holidays at Bed, Bath and Beyond (and it doesn’t look like the longer portion has the width you’d need): http://www.bedbathandbeyond.com/product.asp?order_num=-1&sku=14737693&

It wouldn’t have quite the same drama, but using a hurricane would work and give you that pretty flared shape at the top.  Or maybe a footed apothecary jar without the lid? The jars would sell well after the wedding since they’re so popular for candy buffets, so you wouldn’t be left with a bunch of vases!

There are different shapped vases at Ikea, not exactly what you’re looking for, but affordable nonetheless.

I’ve seen something very similar at Michael’s (the craft store).

I was just going to suggest going to a craft store, or maybe calling other florists and seeing if you can purchase some or even rent from them

They have tons of products. I think I may have seen something similar to it. It kind of looks like an apothocary vase w/o the lid. I would look at the websites apothocary jars (they are the cheapest I have found too but watch your S&H charges too)
