A simple floral wedding arch is the easiest to coordinate and assemble yourself, too.

Geometric Style Arches

For a unique setting and memorable photos, a geometric wedding arch can add just the right amount of intrigue and flair to your outdoor ceremony. When paired with the bold shapes and strong lines of your arch, florals can add a touch of softness, texture and color. As different flowers and foliage have their own structural elements, you can play around with a range of combinations to create a ceremony setting that is both modern and timeless.

Rustic Wedding Arches

Rather than a temporary structure, the concept and feeling of a wedding arch can be extended to an existing feature at your wedding location, such as a gazebo or even a low hanging tree branch. Adding flowers is the perfect way to elevate your chosen arch from everyday, to extraordinary. Whether your outdoor wedding is rural, coastal, mountainside or lakeside, adding flowers will make it the perfect setting for the most important day of your life.

Overflowing Arches

If “more is more” is your wedding planning motto, then flowers can be the perfect way to add abundance and opulence to your outdoor arch. Just as flowers bloom wild in a meadow and your love for each other overflows, so too can the centerpiece of your dream ceremony. The trick to a truly luscious wedding arch is to mix different textures, sizes and colors of both greenery and flowers to create a natural, bountiful focal point. This may seem daunting, but in fact it can be incredibly easy to create an abundant floral arch yourself - you can even make it ahead of time!

Whatever your own unique style and vision is for your dream outdoor wedding, a floral arch is a timeless way to set the scene for romance. It’s time to get creative, and don’t be afraid to draw inspiration from indoor wedding arch ideas, too. Artificial flowers can be the key to creating your dream arch, making any style more accessible for your budget, climate or planning schedule. Artificial flowers can also be used to elevate real flower arrangements, making even the most extravagant floral desires within reach of your budget. For many brides, assembling an outdoor wedding arch is when it all starts to feel real - after all, this is where you’ll find your forever!
