Pottery Barn has beautiful seaglass green ones for less than $40 a piece with glowing reviews. You could also get the 2-gallon lidded glass cookie jars from KMart and use small silver ladles to serve. I think floating the fruit slices in there is so beautiful. Good luck with your wedding and congrats on your engagement!
