Our Freestanding Arches are a staple for Event Planners around the world. Choose from Metal, Acrylic & Mirrors!

For weddings and special events, we appreciate just how critical it is to nail that first impression. That's why we've searched diligently to create a collection of ceremony arches that will awe your guests and more importantly, awe your clients! And for the buyer, these arches are one of those investments you will love more and more each day because of the many years of use and many unique looks you will get out of them!

Our Professional Grade Pipe & Drape Kits can create a backdrop elegantly draped with sheers and silk flower garlands to match the theme. If you need a backdrop to hide a wall or background, our poly premier fabrics are the ticket. All of our sheers and poly curtains have large rod pockets to quickly slide onto the pipes and there are rod pockets on the top and the bottom. If using to hang, this gives double life to these curtains or you can use them as a canopy. All of our decorative ceremony arches are free standing, quick to assemble and all have a multitude of crossbars and holders to attach as much or as little garnishment as you desire. Add flowers and greenery, sprays and branches, crystal garlands, lighting and tulle to beautifully frame the moment while creating an ideal photo shoot backdrop!

And our grandest arches are the Clear Transparent Acrylic Arch which stands 9.5 feet tall by 9.25 feet wide and has hollow legs which allow for endless decorating possibilities and our Modern Mirrored Wedding Arch with stands 10 feet tall by 10 feet wide. These are truly spectacular pieces which we also offer as 4 legged gazebos!

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.
3)Water tube my blooms. You will still need some weights.I once used wet foam, lots of weight, still it tilted.
