Use Flowers – Lots of Flowers!
The key to a sensational wedding arch is decorating it with lovely flowers and greenery.
If you don’t like the earthy tones that the wood has then you can cover the entire frame of the arch with flowers and greenery.
You don’t have to use real flowers for this if you don’t want to as you may have already spent a big part of your budget accommodating real flowers for the rest of the ceremony.
You can hire a professional to make a flower arrangement if you don’t want the stress of learning to do it.
