Fiance and I are doing a slight science theme to our wedding and want flasks and beakers to put candles and flowers in for centerpieces… but it turns out they’re kind of expensive! Any ideas where we could get some for cheap? Or rent them? Thanks!

I grew up going to American Science and Surplus in Chicago. Don’t know where you are, but they definitely have lots of lab glass and are pretty reasonably priced. http://www.sciplus.com/category.cfm/subsection/4/category/42

I have not a clue for you other than to say… I love this!!! I’m such a nerd and Darling Husband just isn’t so he wouldn’t have gone for this at all. But I would be amazed to see a beaker and flask in a centerpiece.

I’ve been to a wine bar where they brought the wine in erlyenmyer flasks to the pour into your glass! It made me laugh hysterically as a science teacher!
What a cute idea!

@Beckster329: I’m having the exact opposite problem. I’m a chemistry graduate student and my wife let me use beakers and Erlenmeyer flasks as center pieces for our wedding reception (isn’t she awesome!?). It turned out wonderfully. They looked fantastic with our flowers in them. I used my professional connections to get all my glassware, but now I have a living room full of beakers and Erlenmeyers that I can’t seem to get rid of and they are becoming a nuisance. I got all mine through Fisher Scientific (www.fishersci.com), but they aren’t any cheaper than most sources without a discount. Not to try to pressure you (but sort of, haha), I still have all mine and they are all for sale. I’d love to get rid of them. I have 500mL, 1000mL, 2000mL, and 4000mL beakers and Erlenmeyers. Let me know if you are interested in them…I’ll try to make a great deal! Also, as I look around trying to get rid of them I’ll keep an eye out for other cheap sources and let you know.
