WEDDING CEREMONY BACKDROPS: Arbors & Arches

You found the one who gives you all the feels, and you’re ready to tell the world. So why not frame your “I do’s” with the wedding arch of your dreams. Your very own personalized wedding arbor can serve as the visual focal point of your entire ceremony, provide a gorgeous backdrop for your exchange of vows or bring a playful feel to your celebration.

Arbors and arches are super DIY projects… just purchase a base (like one of these beautiful & affordable options available on wayfair.com) and adorn it with anything your heart desires, from lush floral elements to twinkly string lighting or even decorate it with some geometric shapes. Not up for the project? Simply enlist the aid of a professional florist or event rental company. Either way, a specially decorated arbor or arch will provide the perfect backdrop to exchange your vows under. If you make your own, though, you can permanently install it in your backyard as a romantic reminder of your day.

Your wedding ceremony backdrop style can range from whimsical to modern. Consider the season, location and theme of your wedding to design the right look for your special day. We found several gorgeous wedding arch ideas from Wayfair, which we’ve shown below to help inspire you. Whichever style trellis you choose, let it reflect your personality as a couple and the feeling you want to evoke on your special day.

Boho

Bohemian backdrops are perfect for wild-hearted, free-spirited couples looking for something different. Embellish a geometric teepee or adorn an arch with macrame and greenery to create a chic, minimal look.

Tropical

Transport your guests to white sands and crystal clear waters with a tropical-inspired backdrop. Think palm fronds and relaxed breezy decor. Incorporate a whitewashed arch, textured macrame, and bright blooms. Tuck in a few Monstera leaves for the ultimate beachy feel.

 Classic

Both timeless and elegant, a classic wedding arch never goes out of style. Exchange your vows under an airy, ornate arch with billowing curtains and white or pastel florals.

 Whimsical

For fanciful couples wanting a whimsical touch at their wedding, these over the top botanical arbors deliver major style. Cascading floral arrangements, floating candles or hanging chandeliers will capture this playful look.

Rustic

For all the rustic-industrial loving couples, a raw metal arch will complement your vibe. Pair it with earthy succulents, florals, and moss.

Natural

The couple who lives by all things organic can celebrate the breathtaking beauty of nature with a greenery embellished wedding arch. Hanging mason jars, muted tones and earthy eucalyptus can elevate the look.

 Bold

Bold and colorful backdrops are perfectly suited for light-hearted couples who love to have fun. Garlands of bright florals or lavish streamers in a rainbow of colors add just the right dose of joy to a wedding arch.

Fairytale

Create your own fairytale ending with a dreamy wedding arch. Delicate details, soft lighting and barely there florals will create an ambiance you and your guests will never forget.

 

 Whatever wedding vibe you’re going for, you can definitely showcase your style with a personalized wedding day arbor.
