Arches are an easy DIY. That doesn’t necessarily mean that you want to do the work the day of your wedding with fresh flowers.

I would do a base with a garland or branches of silk greenery, then tuck in some flowers or flowering branches in florist tubes the day of.

If you want live flowers, you could make up arrangements in blocks of floral foam the day before, then wire them to the arch the day of. IT helps if you have somewhere cool to keep them overnight.

sparkosity :  For what its worth, that is a much better quote than I got from florist in my area.
