I know $250 doesn’t sound like much, but it’s those little things that continue to stretch our budget. So I’m trying to decide if upgrading our ceremony decor from what we currently have, to a bamboo arbor is worth the extra $250. I think the arbor is so gorgeous, and flows with our “simple but elegant” theme. What do you think??
Here is what we have now:
And here is what I really want:

are you having a dw? if not, you could make that for a lot less than $250.

I think the current decor is lovely, but if you can afford to stretch your budget…the bamboo arbor is more romantic and has a “wow” factor that the plants do not. It is gorgeous!

I love the arbor! It just looks gorgeous! I looked at a lot of beach wedding decorations & every one I had the option on choosing I always liked the ones with the arbors the best.

🙂 YES! I know what you mean, but I think that an extra $250 is worth it as that bamboo arbor is amazing and super romantic! I would definitely fit that in

I’m really picky about this stuff (add-ons that cost hundreds of dollars), but as soon as I saw this… I voted YES!!! Your ceremony is so important and you’ll be watching it on video and looking at pictures forever. I think this is something I would cut something else out to have.
My venue wants to charge $500 for candles in the atrium of the venue… would love them, but no thanks : ) Yours is definately worth the $$$
Btw, my favorite part of the arbor is the draping white fabric blowing in the wind.

@kitzy: Yes, this one is destination, but it’s in Destin, FL, and we live in Houston, TX. So it’s about a 11 hour drive away. We just decided we’re driving to save my dress from being smashed in the overhead bin on the airplane, and to save about $500.

I’d love to say it’s not but it totally is.

We had a very similar “arch” and it is by far the best part of my ceremony pictures. I think that made the cost (although we made ours and it was less than $250) really worth it.

Wow – thanks for the responses!! They are actually charging $550 for this, but that’s up from only $300 with the “fern crescent”. I guess I’m just stuck in the mindset of “wow that’s beautiful, but it’s SO not worth $550”. LOL

@franks.katie:ok if you’re driving, you can totally bring your own bamboo poles and diy this. look up how to make a chuppah – it has a very similar structure.
