A modern twist to the circle arch is the hexagon - it’s ideal for a chic wedding aesthetic, particularly if you have strong geometric elements in your decor overall.

Triangle backdrops are the trifecta of modernity, bohemian styling, and minimalism. This couple made creative use of the A-frame exterior of their venue to create a dreamy wedding arch lit with festoon lighting.

Infusing the floral installation with elements of the celestial can make for a pretty wondrous backdrop. This particular style is sure to leave your guests wide-eyed and inspired.

Foliage is often underused or under-appreciated in floral design, but arches like this show how exquisite and organic installations can be when they feature foliage first and foremost.

Foliage is also incredibly diverse in that it can also be used as striking accents/statements. This monstera arch, for example, is a visually arresting piece that would be perfect for tropical weddings or as a natural touch to a chic urban wedding.

Depending in the country of your wedding venue, you can use pampas grass or toi toi in your wedding backdrop to add some spectacular texture and dimension. Lush and lovely but not overly elaborate. They are also great for brides and grooms opting for a toned-down colour palette - the ivory colour can balance a gleaming bright white which means you don't need to include other bold colours in the piece.

Macramé is a textile made from knots, which makes it particularly perfect for use in the backdrop to the setting where you figuratively tie the knot with your partner. It couldn’t be more ideal for outdoor weddings with a bohemian vibe, and you can even keep it as a meaningful decoration for your home after the wedding.

Giant flowers like these tissue paper peonies are blooms that will definitely make a statement. This is not a common style for floral arches but it is definitely something we can see future kiwi brides embracing. It's a trend to watch.

Drape fabric over simple wooden frames and you instantly create a romantic, intimate feel. It's homely and minimalist, but it recalls the elegant drapery of a long-lost era of romance. Maybe the best part of an arch donning drapery is that it is the best option for reducing waste after your wedding as almost all the materials can be reused or recycled.
