7 Beautiful Arch and Arbor Designs for a Western Wedding
In an Indian wedding, the bride and groom make certain promises to each other while seated in a mandap. In a Victorian/Christian/White wedding, the couple say ‘I do’ while standing under a wedding arch or arbor. Depending on the theme and tone of the wedding, the arch/arbor is decorated accordingly.
Arbors can be made in many different shapes and sizes and I have seen arches and arbors fashioned out of flowers or shells, wooden branches, twigs and material hung over tree branches. Arches, on the other hand, are typically only designed as a rounded structure. Arches can be made out of many of the same materials as arbors but usually have a little more of an elegant look than the boho look many arbors are known for.
Different types of wedding arches and arbors have both cultural and religious significance (representing protection, divine presence, and the home, to name a few), modern couples embrace the curve for aesthetic and décor purposes, too. Take a look at 7 beautiful wedding arches and arbors that you can include in your white wedding:
1. Simple, beautiful and perfect – that’s what this circular wedding arbor can be described as. It has been decorated so well that it looks like it is a natural structure!

6. For a more boho-chic and colourful look, take a look at this arbor. Single-color flower garlands strung together to create a festive effect on the birch-wood ceremony structure.

7. Marsala is a beautiful shade of red and can bring a subtle and perfect pop of colour in your white wedding. Marsala-coloured drapes intertwined with vines on your wedding arch will be such a magical look.
