Aisle Decorations Assistance

Hello:
I would like to decorate the aisle for my ceremony.  I just wanted to do 3 tall glass vases w/either floating candles or just a plain candle on each side of the aisle (so a total of 6 vases).  I did want 1 large vase at beginning of aisle (1st row of seats), 1 medium sized vase in the middle, and 1 large vase at the end of aisle.  The vases will be on the floor.  I have attached a link of an aisle decorated with vases and candles inside.  I do not want this many vases although it does look very nice.  I am on a very tight budget and a florist told me that they could rent out these vases to me for between $200-$400.  I find this price to be very high.
I need your assistance in seeing around how much these vases truly cost (I would not want anything taller than 3 feet for the larger vases) and where I can purchase them myself for cheap if possible-whether it be online or in Massachusetts (I can even travel to NH and RI if necessary).
Please see link below for idea.  Thanks for your help ladies!!

  • I think kateryan8 had some for sale. 

  • I would also check out IKEA.  Their website has a 26 inch vase listed for $19.99.

    They probably have others in stock at reasonable prices as well.  Good luck!

  • Oh-great!  Will definitely look them up!  Thanks so much for the ideas!!
  • Where are you getting married?  We're not allowed to do any aisle decorations (church), so before you buy anything, make sure there aren't any restrictions at your venue.

    I second the Ikea idea -- or ordering online might be a affordable option.

    We are getting married at The Villa in Bridgewater.  I already checked and they do allow this.  2 ft vases are pricey online as well but I agree--they may be reasonable at Ikea.
    Other florists have mentioned using 10.5 in vases (which seem so small to me!) and the costs for these are really good.  But I wanted taller vases....
    Thanks for the advice!
  • Jacobson Floral Supply in Boston on Albany St has a lot of vases in different sizes.   Their prices are better than on-line, and there is no shipping involved.
