Wedding Arbors Ideas

There may not be a special day other than that when two souls are united in marriage. It is a civil and public expression of intention to live together. Since this is a one-time event participants want to achieve, proper planning is high on everyone’s list of priorities. A beautiful wedding arbor for the ceremony to take place under is an important part of the package.

White vinyl wedding arbor

There is nothing quite like a pretty arbor as the backdrop for a wedding ceremony. However, it doesn’t have to be expensive. A simple white vinyl arbor can provide a beautiful form to place flowers, netting, or other ornaments that are beautiful or meaningful. Better still, if you place this graceful arbor in your garden, it is suitable for both live and artificial plants.

Wood eventually rots, iron rusts and can damage plants. But vinyl is a neutral fabric that stands up well to the weather and lasts season after season. You can easily use this pretty arbor for your wedding ceremony and then have it as a beautiful daily reminder of your special day.

Large sheet of vinyl

A large sheet of vinyl offers even more options for sculpting vines or flowers over it. With almost oriental details on the roof support and tightly ‘braided’ side panels, this arbor offers plenty of support for your heavier, woodier flowers like roses or trumpet vines. It also gives you a chance to enjoy some of the more invasive flower tendrils and still contain them. Some ornamental vine species are difficult to manage and if allowed to invade they can damage trees.

This arch can be placed well away from tree areas but provides shade or a nice area for a bench. It also works well as a wedding arbor or as an entrance to your garden. Because of its width, it can easily be placed over a path or by a gate. If it is to be part of a wedding display, it makes an excellent support for floral decorations.

Graceful Gothic steel arch

This graceful Gothic steel arch is the perfect place to train moonvines or cardinal climbers. Being made of steel, it is slim, but can withstand the weight of woody climbing roses as well as the lighter annual flowering tendrils. It is perfect as a wedding arch. Its delicate, almost ethereal shape is perfect for draping light fabrics or garlands of flowers. It can convey an old world feel with rich tradition and overall elegance. It can also create a beautiful corner in the garden, a gateway to a garden area, or the entrance for a procession.

No matter what decorative purpose you pursue with this decorative bow, it is durable and weatherproof, allowing for years of enjoyment. The powder coating of the steel withstands rain and other moisture. Although steel and iron are sensitive to moisture, the painted alloy is far more resilient than iron.

Pergola style wedding arbor

Simplicity is sometimes exactly what is wanted. This pergola arbor is made from 100% vinyl, so it has excellent weather resistance. The vinyl texture mimics the style that could develop from using simple pieces of wood, but is unlikely to present the same problems as a latticework that might occur with wood. Even if wood is treated and painted, moisture can damage it. With this arbor you can enjoy all the beauty of the wood without having to preserve it. As a wedding arbor, it can be staked out almost anywhere and adorned with floral offerings, lots of greenery, or your choice of panels of fabric. The neutral style allows you to develop your choice of stylish decorations without expecting a conflict between the style of the arbor and the style of the expected ceremony. When not being used as a wedding arbor, the pergola can stand in your garden.

Cedar garden or wedding arbor

When it comes to outdoor applications, cedar is an excellent choice. The red and white striped wood is naturally weatherproof. While it turns a soft gray on its own, you can preserve its warm color by applying a clear, weather-resistant finish. It is a strong wood and friendly to most plants. It does not require any additional treatment to make it resistant. As a wedding trellis, it is a beautiful wood with its own scent, which can easily add a background flavor to incense sticks or scented candles that you have chosen.

The beautiful arch is an ideal place for exercising or placing rose branches. With plenty of support from the cross braces, you can easily add tulle clouds, streamers or bow ties as part of the festive decor. A naturally more beautiful gazebo for every occasion can hardly be imagined.

Crafted from western cedar wood, it’s beautiful on its own with that delightful cedar aroma. Cedar wood is naturally weatherproof and will soften if left without shellac or varnish to protect it.

Shinto Torii style wooden gazebo

This arbor is not the variety to use for holding rose bushes or for overgrown with ivy. This is a gateway, a place that signifies a shift from one state of being to another. As such it would make a lovely wedding arbor, especially if the arbor frames a beautiful, well landscaped water garden. The Japanese are known for their sophisticated design and their ability to turn all areas of their lives into art. This beautiful gazebo is no exception.

Things to think about when choosing a wedding arbor

A wedding gazebo is not as important to most ceremonies as the ring, the cake, the happy couple, or an official with the necessary qualifications to tie the knot and make it legal. However, for some cultures it is an important part of the ceremony and for all cultures it is an opportunity to make the place where the vows are taken special. With that in mind, there are a few things to consider when planning a wedding arbor. If the wedding is indoors, the arbor must be small enough to fit in the space but large enough for the officer and couple to stand underneath. Provision must be made to keep it upright if it is not stable while standing.

If it is outdoors, it must be firmly anchored. In addition, it should also be checked whether the installation is temporary or permanent. If it’s meant to be permanent, it could be part of the couple’s home or a gift for a local park or other popular outdoor space. The budget also plays a role. For an event with budget issues, finding an arbor already installed, e.g. A location in a family member’s yard or in a local park might be a good idea. But for those who want to keep their arbor as part of their home, there are many options.

Temporary installations

For a temporary installation, consider one of the wider supports as they have a better chance of getting up with minimal support. You can always hide utensils such as sandbags and stakes under artificial grass mats or mounds with floral decorations. With a makeshift arbor, the ability to break it down into pieces that can be stored for later use by others is more important than its resistance to the elements.

Permanent installations

A permanent installation could be part of the couple’s home or part of the garden of a wedding chapel. If the gazebo is going to be placed outdoors permanently, weather resistance and the type of plants on or around it play an important part in the planning. Vinyl mandrels are easy to carry, require little maintenance and are often easy on the budget. Metal spikes tend to be stronger. Powder-coated stainless steel is a good choice for a heavy-duty gazebo. If you prefer the look and feel of natural wood, cedar and sequoia are always good outdoor choices.

Both can be given a clear finish to retain the beautiful natural color or they can be weathered to a natural grey. When not being used as a wedding arbor, thorns can support roses or other floral tendrils. If the arbor can be reused for other weddings, white or red ramblers are good choices for flowers. But clematis, cardinal vines and moonflowers are also beautiful.
