Wedding Arches / Wedding Arbours
Wedding Arches are probably the most quintessential wedding decorations out there. They are a staple in every venue, regardless of the theme. They look fantastic as a decoration with tons of symbolism you would want when you're about to start a life as a married couple. From square, triangle, and circle — we have every wedding arbour option you need and more.
Wedding Arbours are easy-to-build structures, often decorated with artificial flowers and drapings. However, balloons and some fairy lights are just equally fabulous design ideas depending on the occasion. Ultimately, wedding arbours make an excellent display for your wedding or event indoors or outdoors.
Wholesale Wedding Superstore offers a wide variety of wedding arches at wholesale discounted pricing. We are committed to providing Australia with affordable wedding and event essentials without sacrificing quality and design. Our products are available Australia-wide, and we offer fast delivery to all major cities, including Adelaide, Brisbane, Canberra, Darwin, Hobart, Perth, Melbourne and Sydney.
Top 10 Trending Arches / Arbours Design Ideas for Weddings
The past few years have been very difficult for weddings or gatherings of any sort — to transpire. However, trust in people's creativity and ability to render design ideas and inspirations embracing the new normal. Most of these design predictions are meant to celebrate individuality, eccentricity, and being uniquely you (which should be a forever trend, in our humble opinion). From bold colours and monochromatic stylings to fantastical themes and whimsical designs — find your heart's desire in any of these selections. So buckle up and scroll through our predictions and wedding trend alerts for 2022 to 2023.
#1. Vintage Nostalgia
This idea may sound old, but in our generation today, many of us like to reminisce the good 'ole days — may that be in music, fashion, or beauty. There are things, moments, and concepts so distinctly unique about the previous eras that are still relevant today and we all love. This design inspiration heavily takes elements from vintage colour schemes, patterns, arrangements, and even pieces of furniture.
#2. Indoor/Outdoor Fusion
It's no news that we had limited time outside for the past 2-years due to the pandemic. We saw a ton of weddings held in gardens, backyards, and even rooftops, only to be in an open-air environment where everyone can feel safe. The great thing about wedding arches is that they work perfectly inside and outside with decors that also work both ways.
Inspired by the hit Netflix series Bridgerton set during the regency era in London. The captivating ballroom scenes with rich historical architecture and dreamy baldachin drapery adorned lavishly with bold blooms truly inspired this idea. If you haven't seen this record-breaking series just yet, go ahead and start binge-watching it and get inspired.
#4. Fun-size Decors
When they said big things come in small packages — we assumed they meant this design idea. Contrary to popular belief, this is not minimalism. This idea is simply taking all your decors (as many as you want) in smaller portions or sizes for that cute, adorable finish.
#5. Bold Blooms
Floral decorations in any wedding never go out of style. Fill your wedding arches and tablescape with flower arrangements that evoke joy and optimism. Having bold blooms in heartwarming colour combinations make to fill your space is always a great design.
#6. Smokey Metallics
The season of pastels and ombrés is long gone. We are now entering the era of shiny, glossy, and smokey metallics (we are not talking about silver and gold accents). We are talking about some smoggy greys, midnight blues, and deep reds in your draperies and blooms.
#7. Destination Themes
With the pandemic going on and different variants continuously creating an unpredictable future for all of us, couples still have reservations about doing destination weddings. However, having your dream destination as a wedding theme is still feasible. From Europe and Asia to the Americas — with the help of detailed planning and carefully curated decorations, nothing is impossible.
#8. Scandi Design
Clean lines, minimal decors, and simple accent pieces are the true spirit of Scandinavian design. Having less clutter evokes peace, simplicity, and cleanliness. Decorate your arches with minimal drapings and some flowers to do the trick.
Remember those times when weddings used to have colour themes for decorations? That's what this idea is about but elevated. Imagine fifty shades of grey, but only this time you can pick whatever colour you want and play around with its different hues alongside the textures of the materials you decide to use.
This design idea is one of our personal favourites and arguably the best trend for weddings. Imagine a cottage fairy wedding, woody, whimsical, and intimate. Decorate your wedding arbours with sheer drapings, add some artificial twigs and forest flowers, and you're good to go.
DIY Tips and Tricks
Because we believe you can do it, here are some DIY tips and tricks for your wedding arbour decorations.
- Install Wedding Arch/Wedding Arbour, and make it a point to work in a space where you can freely operate around it.
- Secure your drapings with pins to ensure they stay how you like them.
- Add your floral foam cages and secure them with zip ties around the areas you want to put flowers and greeneries.
- Start your floral decoration by adding the base greeneries. Placing the leaves in order of larger to smaller pieces should help position natural-looking foliage.
- Balance the look by starting with one stem added to each side of the floral foam cage.
- Start filling in with your blooms, alternating; from left to right for a lush, fuller look. Be mindful of the arcs and edges of your design to achieve a clean and elegant result.
- Follow a zigzag pattern for optimum coverage when placing your blooms and greeneries downwards.
- After the flowers are in place, fill all the gaps with extra foliage for balance and coverup.
Maintenance and Assembly
Wedding Arches are pretty easy to maintain. They demand very little attention as long as you get to store them in a dry place away from the harsh weather. After use, just put them back in the packaging they were delivered with, and you can use them again, in any event, all year long.
Tips on How to Assemble:
1. Lay all the parts of the arch on the floor
2. Organise the parts of the arch by the shape they are supposed to look like and ensure all wing nuts are facing up
3. Insert all the poles right on the edges to attach the arch altogether
4. Tighten all the wing nuts
5. Lift the structure and place it onto its legs, and then secure the wing nuts again
