Here's a great idea. After the ceremony, the room was flipped and the arch was used as the background for a sweetheart table. We just added a farmhouse table and loveseat.

A few of our images have been emailed to us from various brides as a way to show an aspect of decor they wanted us to re-create. We loved their images and now present them as visual inspiration and as place for you to begin your design. These are not our finished product images, though we create many aspects of these designs.

Once you've selected the type of altar that reflects your sense of style, it's time to accessorize with treatments. Here are some favorite things that we use to decorate altars. We can install and decorate your altar. We can also return to your venue and take down altar, as well as any other rentals you have gotten from us at the end of the night.

Arch Design Tips

The wedding altar is the most important component of any ceremony, so start by considering your wedding venue options. Whether you’re getting married inside or outside, take a good look at the possible ceremony locations and pick the area with the most visual interest that's already in place. If your ceremony will be held inside, does your venue have a fireplace, staircase, picture window or a wall that's interesting? If you’re outside - are there any big beautiful trees, fountains, or interesting landscape that you can use as a focal point or maybe a beautiful background?

It's also important to think about the mood and the tone that you would like to set at your ceremony. An altar area can be taken from something simple, to something very elaborate. To go elaborate, consider adding huge clusters of flowers, chandeliers or even by adding special lighting. There are lots of options available that can make an altar, a one of a kind. And of course, your wedding altar is often the stage for family and wedding party photos.

When considering a non-traditional ceremony backdrop, consider the type of background that you’d like to have. Whether your backdrop be a white wall or open field, start thinking about what you could easily suspend or build that would provide the frame for your wedding portraits. The idea of fabric hanging from loft beams can be beautiful and interesting. There is also a variety of decor and props that you can use to enhance your wedding altar.

If you don’t happen to have an area inside or out that is visually stimulating, you’ve got a blank canvas, which does have it's benefits. If you’re outside and want to go for a floral, garden look, consider renting a garden arch.

Normally, wedding arch decor should not be in contrast with the environment. Example: avoid using flowers that are very modern or very sleek and attaching them to a rustic, old timey garden arch. Try to use something that is soft and romantic for your rustic garden arch that will frame you and your beloved under the ceremony arch.

Mind boggled? Schedule an design consultation with one of our wedding designers. We can help organize your design ideas into a beautiful and seamless design plan.

 

We can deliver, set up, decorate and take down your wedding altar. Altar delivery, set up, decor, and take down costs will vary with the altar and decor that you select.
