Arbor or No Arbor for beach front wedding?

I want to keep my ceremony simple and pretty and the resort has an arbor that they provide, but I just don't like the style of it.

Should I just go without or do something different? My creative skills are failing me at the moment . . . we have to travel to our wedding location so bringing something with us isn't possible . . . what could I get to replace or enhance the the space where we say our vows. We'll literally be standing at the edge of a beach cliff looking out towards the ocean sunset.

Any thoughts, ideas, or suggestions?

Thanks!

    If you don’t like it, I’d say don’t us it. Do you need to have anything - could the natural setting be enough?

    Hi Joyce! That sounds like the most beautiful setting!! Would the resort allow an outside florist that is local to provide either a different arch or jazz theirs up to your liking? Here are a few alternatives that would be pretty! ❤️

    I always thought that the view looking out to the water was great I didn’t want anything in the way! But it's great to have an arbor as long as it fits your budget. Some are just expensive enough to not want it.

    I really like the idea of having something like the first or third photo! If having an outside florist set this up for you isn't an option, then I think not having one would still be gorgeous!

    If you can get a local florist to jazz it up then great BUT your view is going to be stunning either way!

    Let nature be its own backdrop. Skip the arbor.

    To use the arch for our beach wedding was an additional $400 so we passed on it. My wedding is still a bit away, but I haven't felt any regret at all on the decision to forgo it.
