The florist should be able to make anything work with those vases. Just get them one and ask them to make a sample. Usually vases are so weighted at the bottom that they shouldn’t topple over or be top heavy at all.

@DawnaN:  I love the rose pom on the trumpet vases.  that’s what I’m using as my centerpieces.  Along with 3 level cylendar vases with floating candles 🙂

@BrideEK:  The shipping is the hurter unfortunately, but I found another website that has them cheaper. You have to buy them by a case of 12.  You can fill them with the watered beads or you can carefully put in the clear gem rocsk (if that’s what they’re called lol)

Check out this site… they have cheap tall ones and different sizes. http://www.lacrafts.com/product_p/v2003-cl-v2001-wt.htm 

I hope this helps 🙂  These are what I’m ordering

oh, and you can always make your own! I bought some roses at the dollar store. It takes 12 dollars to fill an 8″ styrafoam ball.  You’ll have to cut coupons to buy the balls since they’re so expensive.  Every week I get a coupon for 40% off a regualr item at my local craft store (Michael’s & Jo-Ann Fabrick). I’ve just been buying as I go. My wedding isn’t until December this year.  Here’s a pic of what my dollar store rose pomander looks like…. and they’ll sit on top like the 2nd pic DawnaN posted 🙂

@BrideEK:  I think my vases were the same and we had the same issue with the small opening, but since we got to borrow them for free, I was using them!

I wanted to go with something classic and elegant – and I think it worked well for our venue (a hotel ballroom). It was a gladiolus stem, one rose, and a little bit of greenery.

Edit – since that pic keeps being tiny, here are a couple of the extra ones on our cake table. (non pro pic)

Actually, I think ours were 16in, but if you look closely, we put blue beads in the bottom so the flowers could sit up higher- you could always do something like that with yours too – add some filler at the bottom to make sure the blooms are where you want them.

@BrideEK: 

In order to create a larger floral arrangement on the top you can use the bouquet handles with a foam ball on top. These are also available on Save-on-crafts.  They are the same as used for the plume arrangements.
