Envisioning the décor of ceremony spaces is never as the reception. There are no tables for centerpieces, no cake to display, and rarely a decent opportunity for uplighting. But one surefire way to add a “wow” factor to your nuptials is with a beautifully decorated arch or chuppah where you and your beloved can say your vows.

While the chuppah is traditional for Jewish ceremonies, in recent years, wedding arches or canopies have become increasingly popular at nuptials of all faiths. Meant to represent a new home for the couple, these structures can be as simple or lavish as the couple wishes. Draping flowers upon wooden beams is one of the most popular methods of decorating these wedding arbors, but there are, of course, many ways to personalize your arch or chuppah to best fit the aesthetic of your ceremony.
