1. Balloon arch kit
If you’re allergic to flowers (or just plain don’t like them) consider this balloon kit.
Everyone loves balloons, and look how incredible they look made into an arch.
Of course, I went for the rainbow look – but there are tons on the market that will match your aesthetic. Whether that’s gold, white, or pink.
For an arch suitable to stand under, the 8-meter option would be your best option. However, the smaller arches could be used elsewhere, to really tie everything together.
Prices range from $23 for a smaller kit to around $68 for larger options.

Boho, forest, traditional, or beach – I think this would look perfect. At $15, it’s a bargain!

This metal arch is a great choice – it seems fairly easy to assemble (and that’s coming from somebody who isn’t exactly a DIY expert).
Sidenote: the picture above is the arch in its full glory. You will have to decorate with the flowers and anything else, all on your own. Take this is a blessing – you can make it your own, in every sense of the word.

5. DIY Bouquet Kit for Perfect Arch Flowers
I know what you’re thinking; “that’s not a wedding arch kit”. Just hear me out.
Go back up to those arch frames above, which you can put together yourself. Now, if you so desire, you can leave them as is. However, adding flowers would make them look much for suitable for a wedding.
You can make bouquets yourself – especially with the help from a kit, that lays out everything you need. I picked this desert blush silk kit, just because I really loved it.
Realistically, you could find any design, colors, and flowers you’re searching for.
