How do you make a DIY wedding arch with silk flowers?

by DIY wedding planner on January 25, 2012

I know where i can find an affordable metal arch but i don’t know what i’d need to decorate it for the wedding. Just want simple and sweet doesn’t have to be fit for the queen.

Check in your local area and search “weddings”, some people sell their used wedding supplies, including arches.
Michael’s Craft Store and JoAnn Fabrics both sell a ton of wedding supplies, and they always have 40% off coupons. I remember seeing a wedding arch there for about $40 (so It could basiclly be only $25) and then they also sell light up flower garland, that you could wrap around the arch! Good Luck!

get the arch and depending on the colour either paint it white with say some silver glitter on it or wrap some white crepe paper or material around it.

depending on the colour theme you are having maybe just some live or silk flowers on the top and perhaps a big bow on either white or possibly the colour of your bridesmaids on either side. you could also twine some ivy or similar creeping plant around or through it.

if you use live flowers perhaps ones that are the same as your/bridesmaids bouquets.

have fun, enjoy the day and have a wonderful marriage.
