A wedding arch frames the moment you become a newlywed. It also reflects the spirit and style of an outdoor wedding. Because Pronghorn Resort offers some of the most gorgeous outdoor ceremony views in the region, we see so many beautiful wedding arches and they are all so different. From construction to floral design to size and height, the only limit on your wedding arch design is the sky (and we have plenty of that here!).

Here are some of our favorite trends in wedding arch design from real weddings this season at Pronghorn Resort.

Look, don’t eat

Why use flowers when you can take inspiration from the local harvest of fruit? Hart Floral used giant arches of apple and pear branches in this beautiful and organic wedding arch. Greenery is a big trend in wedding floral for 2017, and fruit branches offer that rustic, fresh and natural feel perfect for brides and grooms whose idea of a perfect date is strolling through an Oregon orchard together.

Hop fresh (and hanging roses)

In Bend, there’s always a creative way to use craft beer. In this case, a wedding arch created by Summer Robbins Flowers made use of fresh hops. Full of texture and dripping with craft beer lovers’ favorite symbol, the arch also showcased another gorgeous and romantic trend: hanging roses. A beautiful backdrop for nuptials.

Do-it-yourself continues to be a meaningful trend and this wedding arch is just beautiful in its simplicity and story. Hilary and Chase made the arbor themselves, Summer Robbins Flowers added the garland and flowers. It’s a DIY project that brides- and grooms-to-be can easily tackle together as they look forward to the day they are wed beneath an arbor they made with their own hands.

Fabric and floral

Perhaps nothing is more romantic than a flowing piece of white fabric and gorgeous cascades of flowers. The sash adds to the wedding arch beautifully, making the floral design extra vibrant for photos and guests. It also ties in with the bride’s gown and her bridesmaids’ dresses.
