How to choose the perfect wedding arch for your big day.
When you think of planning your wedding you probably imagine the color scheme, what flowers to pick & which flavor of cake to choose, but one of the most important decor items you may not have considered yet is your wedding arch! It will be the backdrop of your vows & featured in many photos. Unless you’ve been to dozens of ceremonies in your lifetime, you’re probably unsure of what your options are. Keep scrolling to check out some of our favorite wedding arches to incorporate into your ceremony.
1. Triangle Arch
A triangle can represent many different things from manifestation & enlightenment to unity & opportunity. The triangle arch can be as simplistic or elaborate as you would like it to be, depending on your floral. Above all, it is about finding a wedding arch that matches your style. If you love this look, then this might be the wedding arch for you!
2. Circle Arch
One glance at this beautifully symmetrical circle & you can see why couples adore this wedding arch. A circle can represent infinity, completion & perfection. It literally circles the two of you while you are saying your vows, therefore making very visually pleasing photos. If you are wanting something simple & romantic, this is the way to go!
3. Ground Arrangement
No wedding arch? No problem! There are many reasons why you might not want an arch at all, maybe it is not in your budget or maybe there are restrictions on them at the location you are getting married like at Red Rock Canyon. Just because you don’t have a wedding arch doesn’t mean that you have to stand up there with nothing! We can still create gorgeous ground arrangements using rugs, floral, lanterns, whatever fits your style!
4. Gold Stands
These geometrical stands are great for creating dimension in your wedding arch. The asymmetry creates tons of visual interest. They can be dressed up to be as whimsical or as elegant as you would like. It is ideal for couples who are looking to break from the norm & “stand” out!
5. Traditional Arch
Traditionally the wedding arch is a symbol of the future home the couple will begin their life in. The chuppah is a traditional Jewish tapestry attached to the tops of four poles. The word chuppah means covering or protection & is meant to represent a roof for the newlyweds. It is a lovely tradition that can still look modish & luxurious.
6. Geometrical Arch
This stunning wedding arch design has really come into style in recent years. We’ve been seeing heptagons, octagons, hexagons, alllllll of the ‘gons! Depending on how many sides these have they can have significant symbolism. For instance, the hexagon can represent harmony & balance. Not to mention how stunning they look when they are put into place!
7. Grid Arch
Any arch with a grid on it can be an absolute dream for creating stunning arrangements wherever you’d like them. Florals, balloons, or any other decor can be attached anywhere on this wedding arch, making the opportunities for customization endless. In other words, the sky is the limit!
8. Wooden Windows Arch
Talk about trendsetting! This is one of our absolute favorite up & coming looks for a wedding arch. The slates in the design let the natural light through to create stunning shadows. The rounded tops give it a fun & retro 70’s vibes. They are such a great look for boho chic or bold vibrant weddings!
In conclusion, your wedding arch sets the scene for your ceremony & should reflect who you are as a couple. Therefore, you should go with your heart & choose whichever one feels right!
