I think you should try to get to a Micheals or another craft/floral store and see what they have.  Usally those stores have great sales and you can print cupons on there website to bring in when you purchase.  

I have seen "fake" Green garland at Micheal’s for aound $12 per long strand, but with a coupon or a sale you may even be able to get it for less.  I even saw some with flowers – that would be really pretty too.  I think you could get away with getting enough to cover the enite front of the arch…. since the back wont be seen.. or will it?

Otherwise here is some sites that have been helpful with floral ideas and stupplies:

The leaf garland seems like a good idea.  You could always get a few sinple flowers to mix in too.  I get the emails from Michaels all the time for 40-60% off and they send you the sale ad too so you could try to hit it up during that time (they’ll probably have one soon with Memorial Day coming up).

how about wrapping it up in tulle loosely wth a little greenery here and there; tulle is super cheap when you buy at a garment place whole sale; save yourself 300 bucks, it feels expensive then it is

I agree with the tulle idea.  it is cheap and you can get it in your wedding colors.  Another Idea would be to tie ribbon off onto it so that it hangs in the arhway at various lengths.  We did this for my sisters wedding to dress up the archway that stood behind them and it was so pretty as the wind caught the ribbons and they fluttered up and around.
