1) The Drapery
Th combination of naturally stained wood and brilliantly bright flowers just works. So why fix what isn’t broken! This example uniquely drapes the flowers across the front rather than wrapping them around the poles of the arch.
2) The Alive and Growing
Simply by placing some pots in front of each pole of your wedding arch, you completely transform the look. Make sure to place the same or similar types of flowers in the pot and on the arch. If done correctly, it will look like the arch is growing out of the pots.
3) The Less is More
For a classically vintage vibe and simple elegance, go for The Less is More! This wedding arch looks like it could come right out of your local secret garden.
4) The Flower-Underwhelmed
Some brides do not like flowers and there need not be any shame in that! Flowers are expensive and if you don’t have a particular interest in them, they may not be worth the price. Arches can be beautiful without flowers!
5) The Billowing Fabrics
For another arch with less focus on flora, the main feature of this one is the elegant fabric. Wrap a beautiful material around a more boxy arch. It can be supplemented with flowers or other adornment, but it has enough character to stand alone.
6) The Straight Outta the Shower
How beautiful yet simple is this wedding arch? All you need is a base arch with a skinny rod along the top and a high-quality shower curtain. Upgrade the look with flowers that complement your theme, candles, and other decorations.
7) The Arch-less
No arch structure necessary! Hang a strand of greenery from the ceiling or a wall in a rectangular shape and boom, you have a wedding arch.
8) The Paper Project
Paper flowers are not only for the elementary school classroom. They can create an elegant and beautiful wedding arch. The more flowers you make and pile onto the base arch, the less apparent your lack of artistic ability will be.
9) The Not So Arch-y
Rules are meant to be broken, right? Well you are probably safe sticking to this motto for weddings anyway. Stray from the traditionally curvy structure and go for a more boxy one.
10) The Flower Fest
Showcase your love for flowers in an unexpected fashion by hanging them from a ceiling, tree, rod, or more depending on the limitations your venue.
11) The Beautiful Collaboration
If you love floral arches but purchasing enough flowers to form a whole arch is not in the budget, this arch provides a beautiful alternative! Pair significant sections of flowers with a flowy white fabric around a white frame.
12) The Delicately Natural
This wedding arch requires no frame and is formed entirely from flowers, branches, and other natural materials. Some twine or adhesives may be logistically necessary, but otherwise, go nature!
13) The Ground-Breaker
In fact, who says the arch needs to connect at all? Play off the already delicate quality of the branches and have them whimsically putter off instead of connecting in the middle
14) The Criss-Cross Applesauce
This wedding arch requires a bit of forethought. You will need to plant flowers into the ground at the base of each arch and give them time to adjust to their new habitat. The flowers wrapping around the poles of the arch do not need to actually grow from the plants (but it would be a neat touch).
15) The Forest
This example takes wedding arches to a totally new level. Not only does it include two potted trees for height, but it also has a wall of flowers and greenery as a backdrop.
16) The Bookish
Are you a nerd and you know it? You can incorporate your love for all things knowledge by creating an arch in a conventional shape with unconventional materials: books!
17) The Framed Frames
The straight lines of this arch make it seem very uniform despite the various sizes and shades of the frames. Making this arch would be a fun do-it-yourself project if you have a little bit of experience with tools and a lot of creativity.
18) The Tepee or Not Tepee (that is the question)
This unique wedding arch can further other efforts of a bride to create a bohemian, eclectic, or unconventional theme. Certain venues cater to this tepee style more naturally than more traditional arches.
19) The Open Door
Doorways present a wedding archway option that is both symbolic and aesthetically pleasing. Dress it up with weathered wood and a sign to make it even more appealing.
20) The Artsy Fartsy
Hang a watercolor painting or any large colored sheet of paper from a horizontal rod. This unusual wedding arch will make a statement due to its design and hue.
