The traditional flower arch never goes out of style.  You can go with just about any bloom you favour – roses, hydrangeas, baby’s breath and peonies are some preferred ones. Whether you decide to choose a one-type-of-flower-only arch or mixing various types at once, you can never go wrong with them when it comes to weddings. Here’s a tip: it is always easier to match the flowers of the arch with the flowers in your bouquet!

  • Fabric

Incorporating different types of fabric to cover and accentuate the arch’s shape add a classic touch to the whole affair. Satin, chiffon, organza and tulle are great drapery choices due to their flowy material. It is better to use flowy fabrics as stiff ones are harder to fold and style. Apart from flowers, a more basic decoration like draperies can also create the arch that you’ve been dreaming of! 

  • Ribbons

Some of the most creative arches use little to no florals at all. Have you ever thought of using ribbons as your arch’s decoration? If you aren’t afraid of a little colour, think of colourful ribbons for the backdrop. You can create a fresh new twist to your wedding arch as ribbons are creative and whimsical. 

  • Balloons

Nothing says celebration like balloons. If you think balloons are only meant for parties, think again! Balloon arches are also used as decorations for wedding arches apart from florals. They are great to match any colour scheme and theme you have in mind. Not only do they add some extra style and flair to your wedding, but balloon arches are also cost-effective.   

  • Greenery
