Wedding arches (arched at the top) and arbors (rectangular in shape) add a true sense of beauty and sophistication to any wedding ceremony. They are often the main focus of the wedding ceremony décor and frames the couple beautifully – they also create a great backdrop for photography. With so many ideas out there, we’ve narrowed down four of our favourite styles.
Lush Flower Arches
Don’t be afraid to cover wedding arches and arbors with lush florals and greenery – it can be as simple as using a circular arch or a heart-shaped arch accompanied by flowers or greenery to that match wedding bouquets or wedding themes. Perfect for garden themed weddings, this style can be as minimal and as elaborate as you wish. Use artificial ivy, eucalyptus garlands or artificial hanging plants to fill you arch with lush foliage (floral wedding arches are also one of our favourite ideas!).
Understated and elegant, lights bring an instant sense of style. String some LED fairy lights from the arch and keep extra decorations to a minimum, such as draping ivory coloured tulle over the arch or using a statement chandelier. Whether you choose a wedding arbor or arch, this is one of the simplest ideas but creates a big impact.
Romantic Wooden Wedding Arbors
Not only are wooden and bamboo poles sturdy, they’re also easy to create wedding arches and arbors from. Keep this style both romantic and rustic by intertwining foliage and seasonal flowers – plus, you can add draped decor, eucalyptus garlands or artificial hanging plants that’s perfect for a beachside ceremony.
Large flower arches are stunning and immediately sets the scene for an ultra stylish affair – ideal for a romantic and formal wedding. With so many wedding arch possibilities, it may be difficult to choose just one idea. Just remember, no matter which style you choose let it reflect your style and theme through your choice of artificial hanging plants and flowers.
