1. Full circle
A minimalist circle with ferns, fillers, and a crystal chandelier is modern and significant (especially if you both have come a long way).

 

 

When dreams become reality. Loved dreaming up this unique ceremony piece @bryanmillerphoto

2. Fun with balloons
Skip the flowers and consider balloons instead. The result: a whimsical arch that ties in with your colour theme, and one to keep after the ceremony.

 

 

3. Boho chic
A simple design that’s big on style.

 

 

5. Breathtaking views
A pergola dressed in white blooms, when paired with the backdrop of the azure ocean, makes for a stunning photo op.

7. Tying the knot
Perfect for rustic weddings: an arch with macrame knots and flowers in the prettiest hues.

8. Tropical bliss
An arch with white billowy drapes and lush green filler flowers exude a refreshing, relaxed vibe. (See also: more greens than flowers – stunning centrepieces and bouquets for less)

 

 

9. Petal power
If you’re having a petal-filled arch, have the same flowers (or similar ones in the same colours) line the aisle as well, to tie the entire theme together.

 

 

Petals for days on this lush aisle @coutureevents @bryanmillerphoto @weddings_theinnatrsf @theinnatrsf @classicparty @classicpartysd
