Indoor Vs. Outdoor
Although when it comes to winter weddings, most people do tend to have them inside due to the cold weather, some people want that fresh snow winter wedding kind of look. You may notice through some of our wedding arch ideas that there is a slight difference when it comes to winter weddings inside verse winter weddings outside.
Although a lot of them still keep around the same themes of greenery, lots of twinkle lights or white lights, and some florals here and there, the outdoor winter wedding, wedding arch ideas feature a lot more greenery and are a little bit more simple than the wedding arch ideas for inside.
When you have an outside winter wedding, the focus point (other than you and your partner) is definitely the winter wonderland that’s surrounding you. Keeping the arch pretty simple by using evergreen or eucalyptus greenery is a great way to add that bit of contrast from the white, snow background, but not take away from the beautiful scenery around you and your bridal party.
Rent or Buy?
With how popular and common wedding arches and backdrops are for weddings these days, there is quite a few arch for wedding rental companies out there. This leads me to the question, should you rent your arch through an arch for wedding rental company or should you buy it?
The answer is – it just depends on what you’re looking for and your budget. A lot of rental companies offer a lot more simple or artificial wedding arch rental options that look absolutely stunning and are very well-loved. When it comes to purchasing, if you’re looking for real flowers or greenery or looking to outsource something yourself, purchasing is necessary for that.
