Organising a wedding is no easy feat. That is why most couples approach a wedding planner to make all the wedding arrangements.
But if you wish to organise your wedding all by yourself, this article may help you. Here is a DIY method of building a wedding arch which could be used as a wedding mandap if you are having an outdoor wedding or to decorate your reception venue.
Things you need
An arch base - you could rent it from a garden supply store
Lightweight buckets or flower vases that could be hung from the arch. The buckets will help to create volume to the floral arch.
Flowers and foliage to decorate
Anchor your arch into the ground (if it is an outdoor ceremony) or place it in the middle of your stage. Make sure that you have secured it properly to the ground.
Using wires hang the buckets or flower vases to the arch. You could arrange it aesthetically so that when they are filled with flowers they look stunning.
Next is to fill the buckets with flowers and greenery or foliage and arrange them properly so that it frames the arch beautifully.
Also, make sure that the buckets and vases are secured to the arch otherwise you don't want them to fall on your head in the middle of the ceremony.
Arrange the rest of the flowers and greenery on the arch and secure them with wire.
Voila, your DIY floral mandap is ready.
