Arbor Decor: Flowers, Fabric, and Foliage

Every ceremony at The Bradford is beautiful and special. We love how each couple personalizes little details of the decor to reflect their style. Some are more simple, while others love to go the extra mile. An arbor is one aspect of the ceremony that is so versatile. Just like a black dress is a staple for your closet, an arbor is a stable for a wedding ceremony - you can dress it up or dress it down.

Here at The Bradford, our wooden arbor has been decorated to fit each wedding perfectly. Weather that's with flowers, fabric, foliage or all three, the arbor frames the couple as they commit their lives to one another.

Everyone loves flowers, especially at a wedding. Whether you cover the whole arbor with flowers or bundle them in the corners, flowers add a delicate touch to your ceremony look and make the arbor look like it belongs in a rose garden. Plus, they smell amazing!

Lately, we've had many brides at The Bradford incorporate fabric in their wedding decoration. Fabric is a unique way to frame the bride and groom under the arbor. Drape white fabric over the arbor for a soft and whimsical ceremony. Let the fabric stand alone or add some greenery or flowers to accompany it. Whether your wedding decor is modern or rustic, fabric can be used to compliment any look!

Foliage perfectly hugs the arbor and gives your ceremony an organic look. Try adding some accent flowers here and there for some pop of color or to make the arbor more intimate. The deep green and soft sage colors of greenery on the arbor will balance out the other colors of your wedding and give your ceremony decor a fuller look.

If you aren't a flower, fabric, or foliage person, not to worry, arbors are extremely versatile. You have endless options for your ceremony. Try hanging small mason jars down from the arbor for that rustic feel or even hang a bright chandelier at the center of the arbor for that wow-factor. If you think less is more, an arbor looks great even standing alone!
