We’re getting married at Rye State Park. It will be on a grass lawn area with a 180 degree view of the ocean. I like 4 post canopies but feel those are for on the beach ceremonies. Any ideas on what kind of arch I should be looking for? TIA.

There are so many options! Does the site offer any possibilities or are you starting totally from scratch?
Where is your site located? Which coast?

You can usually buy one at a craft store such as Michaels. They need to be put together then you can buy tuile or some come with it… You could also add lights to it to be used at the reception.. maybe behind your cake?

i think a 4 post canopy would look fine, as long as it’s decorated right. i’m jewish, so we have to use a chuppah, which has 4 posts, so i’m used to seeing them in all locations and i think they’re always beautiful.

Are there any trees around? We are getting married under an oak tree and our “altar” is a modification of this real wedding featured on Martha Stewart.com. It is so simplistically elegant.

@may2011 – how pretty is that!! I love it. Wish we had something similar we could use at our outdoor wedding. 🙂

@bubbly bride – Thanks! Our ceremony has come together beautifully. We are getting married on the 6th year anniversary of our 1st date in the park where we had out first date. The ceremony is under a giant oak tree that is big enough for all of our guests to sit under it with us in a semicircle 🙂
It is so super easy to make! I just bought drapery fabric in a chiffon crinkle from Joannes (it was going out of business and I got it for 50% off!) All I have to do is hem the edges. Luckily my FMOH can sew!

We had a chuppah (four post canopy) for our indoor wedding. You can really make them as formal or informal as you like. Here is ours:

Here’s a 4-post canopy on a grass lawn…
i don’t think they’re only for the beach….plus u said u have 180 view of the ocean, so it’s almost beach anyway…lol

If the canopy is decorated with flowers and greenery I think it will ‘feel at home’ the garden. Have you considered streamers or strands of flowers and crystals like these

I think if it’s decorated with flowers and greenery it will ‘feel right at home’ in the garden. Another option is ribbons
(can’t for the life of me remember where this is from) The bottom left is my fave just 3 branches and a few ribbons I think it looks great in the garden.
(can’t remember where I got this one either) Great look but not everyone has the luxury of having a magnificant tree in thier ceremony.
How about strands of flowers
(still have no clue where I got this pic from) You could hang these from a tree branch or wooden structure and get married in front of them
then there is this arch (without the lanterns it would look so natural in the garden)
(this one I think comes from Wedding Bee???)
*BIG note to self remember where pics come from in future (If anybody knows who owns these pics please let me know so I don’t make the same mistake again)
