Wedding Arches & Arch Trees
Base Weights: Many customers like to add weight to the bases so that they do not tip over.
Some customers use bricks and hide them with florals, and some customers use sandbags. You can even use play sand inside of ziplock bags!
It is very easy to hide the bricks or sandbags, especially when greens are involved. You can also disguise bricks or ziplock bags using black or green duct tape!
Foam or Foam Free Installation of Florals:
There are many mechanics to use when adding florals to this structure. You can use Foam or make a Foam-Free design using chicken wire.
There are some tutorials online that you can check out. our friend Sarah Campbell from Intrigue Designs also teaches a class on this.
Three Different Techniques shared by Vi Nguyen of Picotte Flowers:
1. Attach dry foam then insert greenery on it, water tubed all my blooms. It help a lot with the weight
2. Wrap chicken wire around, insert green cause it doesn’t need water source during an event. Water tube my blooms. You will still need some weights.
3. I once used wet foam, lots of weight, still it tilted.
