st482 :  You can use two patio umbrella stands to support the uprights for an arch. An arch is easy to put together at the site using zip ties, keep it simple with just greenery or add some premade floral arrangements in florist foam blocks,  then lift up into the stands.

For an outdoor setting by a lake, birch poles would look great. You just have to be careful with the width of the poles so they fit in the umbrella stands. If you have two stands the same, you can leave them uncovered or cover them with some moss, rocks etc.

This pic shows the umbrella stands used as support. You don’t have to do 4 poles though.

I would do something simple like this for a wedding by a lake

I would suggest maybe some simple bollards to frame where you will be standing. Similar to this:


but I really love julies’ suggestion of using outdoor umbrella stands – so clever!
