    I am renewing my vows and I am using an arch. The reason I decided was since there will only be 6 of us participating, I wanted it to not look empty. It is basically going to be greenery with tropical colored flowers in 3 different spots. When I find the pic I will post it.

    Also, I found another thread on the next page regarding arches and it had a bunch of pics.

      MelissaH -- your backdrop is simple, eyt perfect. A table with flowers would be fine I would think for you Carly.

        Yeah, I decided to forfiet the arches. I think I will do a petal aisle and a sand ceremony table, that's all. I reallllllllly love the look of the arches, but I just can't justify that expense when there are so many other things that I want to do!

          Not sure if your resort has this option, and I didn't think I'd like it, but after seeing it in person, I really like how the palapas frame the setup.

              No arch, or anything at all, for us. We just wanted it simple with a great ocean view.

                I am having the EXACT same issue. I really wanted a pretty chuppa with white line linens, then I got the quote and about had a heart attack. So I need some serious inspiration too....

                  We are not getting married in the sand but rather on the grass overlooking the sand and the water and I refused to pay for the arch because i'm el cheapo! :)

                  So this is what we are doing instead...2 large flower arrangements at the front of the chairs by us to set the "alter" with the table off to the side for the sand ceremony and thats it....$100 for each arrangement was much cheaper than the the arch.

                    I know what you mean. I am getting married in Maui (i think) and they all are public beaches but Maui beaches need permits to set anything like arches or chairs. My WC suggested for a ring of flowers and I wouldn't get charged for the permit, but I am so set on having a arch that I said i rather pay $.. but You could do that. It's pretty

                      I really like the idea of no arch. I like the scenic view of the ocean and its FREE!

                      I just don't feel the $$ they are asking for is worth the look of the arches. I find most of them ugly.
