Be honest: how difficult is it to DIY your own wedding arch? My MOH said her cousin could make one for about $100-$200, but Hobby Lobby sells a metal frame for $20 (not counting the drapes, flowers, etc, of course).
Another reason why I’m hesitant to have one built is the venue. The lady who gave me a tour (one two separate days - bless her!) advised me that the arch would have to be dismantled in order to get it through the door.
If you have any experience with the DIY arch kits (assembling, decorating, all the things), what advice do you have for me?
