Floral arches are everywhere now! Are you into the newest ceremony decor trend? Or do you think the fixation on floral arches is a little too much?

What do you think? Are floral arches overrated or underrated?

    Overrated. Our venue has a floral arch for the ceremony that everyone uses and we are skipping it and doing a completely different backdrop people there have not done before. I think the floral arches can be really pretty but it is just too overdone for me.

    Overrated. We are doing an arch but just with lights and tulle.

    I was expecting a full floral arch. Something like this, I think will always be in style and classic. Not for everyone, but a simple go to. Soo I can't say either way lol.

    I don't see them everywhere, I keep seeing rustic ones! Bare wood with some tulle!
    I think flowers are underrated but also timeless.

    I actually think I am going to have one at my ceremony, because we are doing it outside and I would like a little bit of decor. has to be simple though.

    Overrated but also beautiful. I wouldn't spend thousands of dollars on one but if I could get one for less than $100 then I would definitely want one.

    I want an arch, but I'm not entirely sure I want flowers. I'd say underrated if they're done well.

    Underrated! They're so pretty! Our venue has an arch like this, and we will be decorating it with drapery and flowers.

    Underrated for me! This was my absolute MUST for the wedding! I just had to have a floral arch, which is what made the finding the florist process such a challenge because they can get really costly especially for the style I wanted seemingly. I just feel like the arch just ties everything together symbolically and is just gorgeous way to frame us when we're saying our vows. I can't wait to see the photos!

    Full floral arches I think are overrated and costly. However, something like the picture above can be easily customizable!

    Overrated.

    However, I'm getting it because I am as basic as pumpkin spice lattes! LOL

    Overrated but I love them!! I and getting married end of March and didn’t want to chance an outdoor ceremony and I don’t live the arch indoor look. So I’m doing 4 pedestals two tall and two shorter ones with flower arrangements.
