I love a beautiful wedding arch. I think of arches as the gateway to a new life together (sorry for the cheese factor). I’m also reminded of the Biblical symbol of God’s grace- the rainbow. And practically speaking, arches are the perfect way to frame the couple in pictures.
But I do try to be creative and tasteful when decorating arches. Too much shiny fabric and big funeral-like flowers can make a good arch go wrong- terribly wrong.
Seems like L’Occitane sees the beauty in the arch, too.
Below, a sweet mini arch made of pink blossoming branches. This would be so lovely for a wedding (about 50x bigger, of course!)
Lemon leaf boughs form the perfect frame for this product. Whatever it is, I want to buy it! Translating this to a wedding would be easy- tons of lemon leaves woven through an arch with lemons on the branch scattered throughout.
This last one- the two reeds tied together at the top with rope and strung with tiny yellow bouquets- gets me every time. Can I go there, please? I remember seeing this poster in the store window, and just staring at it for a long time. I love that the bouquets are strung right-side-up (upside down bouquets remind me of death…)
Now, let the commercial take you to a peaceful, provincial place.
Will you be having a wedding arch at your wedding? If so, is it for symbolic reasons, or do you just like how they look?
