Arbor may be too big for the patio, try measuring and putting out tape and other elements to give you a good idea of what it will look like in person.

Regarding amount of fabric. First decide on your fabric and see if you’ll need to layer it to get the volume/look you want. Measure each post that you want to cover. Measure how far you want the “drape” from the top to hang down and double that distance. Add everything up, and add a yard for safety ๐Ÿ™‚

The arbor is only 4 feet wide. It will not be too large for the patio. It is a nice size for the officiant to stand just under the arbor, and the two of you in front. You will be nicely framed by the arbor in your pics.

If you only want to drape the front, you will need 8 feet for each side plus 4 feet for the top=16 feet. Add 1/3 extra for draping and puddling at the bottom= 21 feet or 7 yards. If you get really wide fabric, you will only need one length.

I think this would look really nice, good price too.  Allow for at least1/3 extra fabric for draping.
