Play With Structure

You don’t always need the traditional arch. Play with different shapes like circles or triangles as your focal point. Instead of the classic way of filling the entire form of your structure with flowers, choose a few places to focus your arrangements. Use lots of greenery for fillers like Cotinus Smoke Bush. Add sprinkles of soft colors with beautiful Ginger Cream Garden Rose. This will save on your expenses and help balance your backdrop. Spotlight your wedding colors in your DIY wedding arch and create the perfect background for drop-dead gorgeous photos of the happy couple and their wedding party.

    Dried flowers are your friend!

    Not only will dried flowers last longer, but they will also keep your structure intact for the entire wedding. Maybe even one of the trending day-after-wedding brunches too! If you want your decorations to keep going, use these beautiful, dried flowers to decorate. Playing with the different textures of dried flowers will add depth to your structure. Flowers like Dried Straw Flower and Dried Red Protea Flower will also provide a pop of color to any arrangement. This half-arch structure is a burst of style and flair. Use a clear fishing line to support and anchor the frame to the wall to create the floating illusion.

    Go Green

    Greenery will always bring a beautiful, natural look to your special event. Use greenery as your primary décor for your arch, and then sprinkle bursts of colored flowers in pockets of the structure. For our bride on a budget, greenery is also the perfect answer if you want to create a lush and full backdrop without spending your entire budget. Utilizing different shades of green will enhance the depth of your display and look beautiful with white or blush wedding dresses.

    Less is More… Sometimes

    Focus on a corner or top of your arch with beautiful varying shades of white for the perfect classic look to your wedding structure. Play with different flowers and shades of the same colors and mix them with your favorite greenery as fillers. A soft fabric that drapes over the arch to complement fresh flowers like Burning Love Garden Rose and Fuchsia Purple Wholesale Carnation is the perfect balance between soft and colorful. Then fill the open spaces with greenery and stems like Airbrushed Sage for a lush look.
