        I actually bought ours on ebay. They engraved the big vase with what we wanted, then we have the 4 small pouring vase's with our names engraved on them. I bought them in an Ebay store. So no bidding, they are brand new and the glass is beautiful. I think we got an excellent price, for the 5 pieces WITH engraving it cost 39.00!!! It took 3 days from ordering to receiving!! I guess I will pack paper towels and Saran wrap and tape to pack it up on the way home.

          I love those!

          We actually used a vase bought at Wal-Mart in Playa the day before, and 2 nautilus shells bought at a store across the street from the resort hours before the ceremony (I knew I wanted those shells, but couldn't find them, and did have a back-up plan!). I just picked up a cheap vase there because I knew I wouldn't keep the sand in an open vase because a. I have 2 kittens that prevent me from keeping almost anything out! and b. I didn't want dust to get in it. So, when I got home, I made this shadow-box to display the sand, a pic of the sand ceremony, and the words my MOH read for it.

              Jerzzygirl,

              What did you end up doing to carry your sand/vases back

                It was much easier then I thought it would be.... I topped off our vase with beach sand, then put about 3-4 layers of saran wrap around the top then put bubble wrap around it and put 3 rubberbands to hold it all on and it was FINE. The colors did bleed slightly into each other from laying on its side in my carryon but it looks cool, and its supposed to be blended, right? lol
