AnaA:  I think your idea of a curtain is great- something to block out the background, or at least not have it so obvious. The challenge with a curtain is that the arch is easily 12 feet high and most silk flower curtains are only 6 feet tall. You could string a line horizontally at that height then hang the curtains from that, but it would also cut the shape of the beautiful arch in half.

Slik flower curtains are a DIY but you would need a massive amount, which would take a long time and require a huge amount of storage so they didn’t get all tangled up.

 

Alternatively, you could do something smaller that would be the focal point and would block out the background in pics taken at the right angle

a chalkboard backdrop

doors- with or without chiffon draping in the middle

 

 

decorate the arch with garlands

you could hang rope at various lengths- “tying the knot”

you could hang curtain or drape  lights which would also be pretty at night- you can cut shapes of craft paper, or plastic- hearts, flowers , stars etc, cut an x shaped slit in them and push one over each lightbulb

I think lanterns could look really nice!<br />

 

Also, baby’s breath is a really beautiful and inexpensive way to incorporate live flowers into your space:

I woud consider a semi-circular row of potted tree branches. If you hurry you might still be able to get free prunings depending on where you live. Check Craigslist or post an ad of your own. Pot them up using plaster of paris or foam insulation to keep them securely upright in containers of your choice.

If you want, you can hot glue silk flowers on to the branches using your colors, the same way you do for manzanita centerpieces

setting branches in pots using spray foam ~  Add some moss to the top of the foam add lights and there you have it...Cheap decor
