The vase does cost significantly more. They may use the same flowers but usually more of them as the arrangement has to be larger to be proportionate to the height of the vase.

@jackndiane:  I had a combination of both short and elevated centerpieces.  The elevated ones were 40 percent more than the lower ones. I am thinking that is because of two reasons: 1) the elevated arrangements would have to be larger and fuller so that they would look good on the high pedestals (vs. what could easily fit in the center of the table itself for the low ones) and also because of the rental of the high vases. I hope this helps!

I think, also, because taller centerpieces are more lavish, they get a higher mark-up. Ugh.

@julies1949:  

Also, from a wedding florist perspective, flowers with perfect long stems aren’t as inexpensive as short stemmed flowers, even of the same kind. A dozen roses may cost you $40; a dozen LONG stemmed roses will usually cost over $100..
