This is a larger version of the traditional monogram vase. You have the option of inscribing the names of the couple & their wedding date or a short message on the bottom of the vase. Please include this information at checkout along with the 3 initials. I've also had these ordered as gifts for the mothers and for the bridesmaids. View my entire shop to see the other styles of monogram vases I have available. I have this style in a smaller, rounder version With the couples monogram, it is the bride's first initial, the surname initial, and then the groom's first initial. For an individual, it is the initial of the first name, the surname, and then the middle name. Depending on the letters, I may shorten the initial letters on the left and right as seen in the vase on the left of the second photo, or have them fill the entire oval as shown on the vase on the right. Some letters just look better shortened, like M's and W's and if I shorten the one on one side I'll shorten the one on the other to balance it out. If you have a distinct preference just let me know in the at checkout. This vase will be approximately 7-1/2" to 8" inches high and will be a lightly speckled ivory cream color. This has a lead time of 4 to 6 weeks, so please keep this in mind if ordering for a wedding gift. Canada shipping is $20 but there is only one price option for international shipping. The overage will be refunded via Paypal. ********************************** PLEASE NOTE: I\'m just giving advance notice that I will be removing the custom wedding vases from the shop starting November 1, 2013. I will relist starting January 2014. If you need one for a wedding or Christmas gift during that time please order prior to November 1st. Thanks!!
