Hi Susan,
This doesn't look like a traditional wedding vase. Thise were blue and white with a specific single character on the outside, not scenery.

This is just a common 20th century vase that might have been used as a wedding gift.
The pictures are too small to see if it is printed or handpainted, but shape and scenery decorations are common today.
The oval mark says "quality item", the small one is a personal seal of the artist or writer. The larger square one says "Guorong porcelain house", seemingly the manufacturer's mark. The item apparently was made at Jingdezhen, China.
