Wedding Arch Design: Arches and Ceremony Flowers
Wedding Arches and Floral Decor for Ceremonies
At The Bouqs Co., our floral fanatics know how hard it is to choose the perfect wedding arch for your special day. To make the design process slightly easier, we've rounded up our leading tips for a flower arch wedding design, complete with the best flowers for your arches and popular arbor ideas that will bring your vision to life.
Types of Arches for Your Ceremony
Before we dive into the best flowers for your flower arch and wedding decor, let's take a look at the most common wedding arch styles.
Traditional arches range in size and structure, though most feature metal or wooden arbor designs accentuated with clusters of flowers, fairy lights, or billowy curtains. The relatively inexpensive ceremony marker forms a delicate frame for your special moments. At the same time, the rustic arch ensures that all your guests know where the main event takes place.
Let your imagination run wild with a floral arch! Whether you hope to capture an earthy vibe with minimal decorations or embrace the tropical beauty of a beach wedding with lush greenery and exotic flowers, a garden arch adds a magical touch to your big day.
Triangle Wedding Arch
Thanks to its minimal design and geometric shape, a triangular ceremony arch guarantees a boho vibe for your ceremony site. For best results, accentuate your triangular arch with one or two cascading bouquets or invest in a wood and metal arch for an elevated outdoor space.
Rustic Wedding Arch
A wooden wedding arch pairs beautifully with rustic outdoor weddings and rustic wedding flowers. Autumn brides can use wispy grapevines and fall foliage to capture the theme of their wedding day. In contrast, spring and summer brides can accentuate the wooden frames with billowy curtains, white and pink roses, and elegant greenery.
The Best Flowers for Bridal Arches
You can spend hours sourcing inspiration from real weddings, but your vision ultimately relies on choosing the right wedding ceremony flowers for your own unique arch.
For example, consider hydrangeas. Our team of floral designers loves the dense texture of the romantic blooms, but the delicate blossoms can wilt quickly in the spring or summer heat, making them poorly suited to most floral wedding arches. Instead, pair sturdy blossoms with wedding greenery for a long-lasting, impactful, and elegant addition to your indoor or outdoor ceremony. Some of our favorite options include the following.
Inexpensive loose greenery adds unrivaled dimension and texture to your decor, which means you can guarantee a voluminous display without blowing your budget. Further, vines can withstand hot days and long nights without wilting.
Despite their lacy, delicate appearance, garden rose blooms make a surprisingly hardy addition to your ceremony design. The blossoms combine the dense, ruffly appearance of peonies with the unparalleled elegance of roses.
Garden roses for weddings also add plenty of depth to your wedding ceremony décor and come in a wide range of colors, making it easy to mix and match pastel petals and bright flowers into your floral design.
Baby's breath may not be the most exotic blooms on the market, but the tiny white flowers add a touch of ethereal dimension to any wedding venue arch. Use the tiny clusters to fill the spaces between larger blossoms, like peonies or dahlias, or pair them with eucalyptus leaves for a minimalistic approach to your décor.
