Wedding Traditions: Candles, Pillars, Flower Vases May Be Used Instead of a Wedding Arch

Our bride’s husband-to-be is too tall for a traditional wedding arch. Check out the Wedding Guru’s suggestions to replace this tradition

(page 1 of 2)

The concept of the wedding arch beneath which the bridal couple stands for their ceremony is to create a “separate space” for the bridal couples. That space can include any item that will encircle them, be above or beside each of them.

Dear Wedding Guru: “This is my second marriage, but first wedding. My dilemma is that my fiancé is very tall (6’ 5”). We’d like to have a wedding arch, but we don’t want him to be as tall as the arch. What other options can we use instead?”
