If you are interested in using a wedding arch on your special day you should know that on the market you can find a wide variety of arches that can be nicely decorated in order to ensure a romantic atmosphere. Suitable for a beach or a garden event, the wedding arch will add a unique touch to the space where your “I Dos” are scheduled to be exchanged. Here are a few tips that will help you create an outstanding wedding arch without spending a fortune.
First of all, I must tell you that for your project decoration, you can simply buy a white metal wedding arch. This simple arch can be purchased from major craft stores for a price that usually varies between $20 and $40. If you want something more sophisticated like a wooden arch or a chuppah you will have to visit a retail store or ask someone close to you to make it, especially if he/she has woodshop experience. The next obvious step involves securing it to the ground and decorating it by using tulle and plenty of flowers.
The brides who want a classic wedding arch should consider decorating the arch by using only tulle or organza. You should tie the tulle to the arch’s base using ribbons and then create narrow rolls of tulle all around the arch by pinning the material at every two rungs. To add even more elegance to your classic wedding arch you should consider placing at the top of it a stylish garland made of silk or sunflowers and roses.
If you’re interested in a floral arch you should cover the simple arch from top to bottom with natural flowers like roses, lilies, blooms and any other flowers that you like and match your wedding theme. For instance, if you’re getting married this fall you should use a combination of red lobelia, salvia, and Lavender Lady. You should also consider adding some faux maple leaves on the sides, using coneflowers, and highlighting the base of the arch with millet grass pots.
For a beach arch, you should choose a four-footed chuppah made of bamboo poles which is more stable in the breeze. To decorate this arch you should use organza fabric tied with ribbons that ensure romantic flutter and natural flowers like red heliconias, dendrobium orchids and tropical foliage. If you don’t want to do all the work by yourself you should buy a pre-decorated arch. Such an option tends to cost up to $400. Interesting wedding arch alternatives are gazebos, grape trellis and low-hanging trees.
