If you’re planning an outdoor wedding, you’ll definitely want/need a backdrop for your ceremony space. While there are many ceremony backdrops available (and these doors, too, which are equally awesome), an arch is one of the most beautiful and elegant ways to tie your ceremony space together. We’ll tell you why you need a wedding arch for outdoor weddings, where to buy wedding arches, and show you our favorite wedding arches so you can cross this task off of your list right now! But first, we have an Ask Emmaline question from bride-to-be, Whitney, related to her outdoor wedding and her quest for a rustic arch. Take it away, Whitney!
“Dear Emmaline, I’m planning a woodland wedding and need a wedding arch. I don’t have time to make my own and I also don’t have any idea how to make one. Do you know where to buy a wedding arch? Thanks!
Where to Buy Wedding Arches
No problem, Whitney! A wedding arch is a great thing to have if you’re planning a wedding in the woods, as it will act as your backdrop and carve out a central space to recite your vows. Now, finding wedding arches is a whole different story, as most places will let you rent one indoors; since you’re having your wedding outdoors, you’ll need to find one of your own.
Wedding arches have come a long way: it used to be hard to find wooden wedding arches — only those bulky plastic ones you find at craft stores — but now it’s so much easier thanks to incredible handmade artists who are happy to make them for you. :)
To inspire you, we’ve found sixteen beautiful wedding arches to help you decide. The best part? These are all available to buy and assemble on your site! All you need to do is add any decorative touches you’d like (like flowers, greenery, paper flowers, garland, tulle, fabric, etc.) Read on to find out where to buy wedding arches online just in time for your big day.
