You could possibily make trifolds using trelises.  Have you checked into possible renting a large tent you could leave the flaps open on all the sides except for the one side.  Also as a gift to your church you could plant a few trees to help give more coverage plus its a nice little reminder of your wedding day.  Hopefully this helps:)

We got really lucky, and there are palm trees framing the area where we are having the ceremony, so I think we’re going to opt out of the arch that the venue provides.  I would ask your florist if they have any structures or tall plants that you could borrow or rent, or if they have any suggestions.  Or maybe you could get creative with fabric (but be careful if it might be windy).  If you are interested in going the DIY route, you could cement tall branches (and decorate them, of course)into buckets and use that as a background.  I’m sure all eyes will be on you anyway, so don’t stress too much!

If you need more coverage than planting trees will provide, you might be able to rent potted bushes or trees.  My aunt did that this summer and it looked fantastic!  All in all it was fairly cheap too.  She used junipers, roses, potentilla and something else.

I sencond the potted plants/bushes.  We’re having a somewhat similar setup, and we found a rental company that is renting us both an altar setup (i have no words to describe it other than sort of like a chuppah) and two large trees on either side.  It completely changed the setup.

I don’t know when you’re getting married, but unless you’re planting fully grown trees, which can be pretty pricey, they’re not going to be huge in time for your wedding?

I’ve been trying to decide this, myself. I’m thinking of asking my dad to build some kind of arbor for us to get married under. Otherwise, I don’t know what we’ll do!
