    I had an arch that we bought. I wove fake flowers through it to make it bright and beautiful. Could you find a bunch of lavender and yellow flowers to do that with? You can find them at Walmart and even the dollar store and they look pretty good!

    BohoMama:  When is the wedding? Do you have time to place an ad on your local Craigslist and ask for free vine prunings? If they have already been cut and are a bit stiff, you can soak them in warm water to make them more pliable.

    BohoMama:  Don’t just stalk- post an add requestiing what you want. I do decorating for charity events and get stuff for free all the time.

    You can also use http://www.adhuntr.com It lists all Craigslist ads everywhere. You can narrow down the results by geographic area on the next page.

    You could also do something like this. The two doors would camouflage most of the arch, then do something only at the top.

    Not an arch as you might think of it, but still an outstanding idea.

    Are you crafty at all? I think the doors with some huge paper flowers at the top would be gorgeous.
