Wedding Arch Inspiration

Planning an outdoor wedding and considering an arch for your ceremony backdrop?

Here, Wayfair gives some great ideas to not only decorate, but to buy an arch, that you could then put in the garden at your new home!

Frame your “I do” with the wedding arch of your dreams. Your wedding arch can act as the anchor to your entire ceremony, serve as a backdrop or just bring a playful feel to the celebration.

Whether you prefer to DIY or your wedding planner is taking care of all things decor, you’ll need a structure to get started. A trellis is easy to adorn with anything from florals to textures, string lighting or geometric shapes. Most importantly, trellises provide a beautiful structure to exchange your vows under.

Your wedding arch can range from whimsical to modern. Consider the season, location and theme of your wedding to play into the aesthetic. We’ve outlined inspiring backyard wedding arch ideas in the visual below to help you navigate your options. Whichever style trellis you choose, let it reflect your personality as a couple and the feeling you want to evoke on your oh so special day.

8 Backyard Wedding Arch Styles

Tropical Oasis

Transport your guests to white sands and crystal clear waters, all while in the comfort of your own backyard. Think palm fronds and relaxed breezy decor. Incorporate a white washed arch, textured macrame and bright blooms or tropical banana leaves.

Fairytale Romantic

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.

Relaxed Natural

For the couple who lives by all things organic, celebrate the great outdoors with a natural wedding arch. Add hanging mason jars, muted tones and earthy eucalyptus for an elevated look.

Wildly Whimsical

Botanical garden meets Alice in Wonderland with this style. The use of cascading arrangements, floating candles or hanging chandeliers will capture the look.

Effortless Bohemian

For the free spirits and wanderers. Embellish a geometric teepee or arch with macrame and wispy arrangements to create a chic yet minimal look.

Bold and Bright

If you’re a couple who doesn’t take anything too seriously or just likes to have some fun, liven up your ceremony with some color. Push the boundaries with colorful streamers, oversized balloons or bright florals.

Refined Rustic

From the country to the coast, a raw metal arch will complement any laid-back, outdoor loving couple. It pairs beautifully with earthy succulents, florals or moss.

Charming 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.
