@ShabbyChicBee:  I bought a beautiful arch from amazon for $100 and we can put it in our garden afterward and keep it forever! The florist gave me that tip because she said it costs $150 to rent and she always recommends buying one! I will try and find a link to add!

No, but I know you can buy or rent ones for $100-$120 or less at places like Hobby Lobby or Michaels.  No idea how nice they are though!

We bought one from Hobby Lobby they had one without a pointed top (rounded) that was more expensive and the point top one. FH convinced me to get the cheap one decorate it enough that no one noticed the top. I think it will be fine. It was pretty cheap and Hobby Lobby has an app that if you download will get you 40% off an item. Only buy the arch one trip and you’re golden!

I’d poke around on Craigslist to see if I could buy one instead of renting.
Or, like PP’s said, I’d use a 40% coupon to Joann’s or something.
Then I’d spruce it up (and not have to worry about how to attach my decorations beforehand – I’d just have it all ready to go) and sell it when my wedding was all done.

We are getting married in front of a fireplace, I feel like an arch is a bad choice for us hahaha

I made mine! 🙂 FH is a welder though so that’s how we were able to. I understand that may not be an option for everyone, but if you know someone that welds it might be an option? To make one that would cost hundreds we used around $100 in materials. Sorry for the huge photos. Here are the before and after we decorated it with vines. We wanted a solid one that was not tubing, and they are too expensive so we made ours! 🙂 We will have it forever and we can say we made it! 🙂
