Should You Buy a Wedding Arch or Rent It?
So, now that you know where to buy a wedding arch, should you buy it or rent it?
Good question! We did some digging and found a great resource for renting a wedding arch vs. buying a wedding arch.
You can rent a wedding arch or arbor from Rent My Wedding with many options available.
Renting is cheaper than buying; however, you do have more choices on what kind of arch you get if you buy. You just have to weigh your options. And remember, if you buy a wedding arch, you can always re-sell it after the wedding or rent it out to other couples to recoup some of your costs.
Get rates, info on renting a wedding arch, and more here. For an estimate, most arches above are around $100+. The arch rental is around $115. The prices are similar, but I guess it depends on whether you want to store it afterward — or if you have a specialty style in mind.
If I was planning my wedding today… I’d pick the cedar wedding arch or the copper! Ahh, I love them both!
