How-to part II:
Configuring the arch system
The tried and true colonnade arch
system setup sets four, fluted, Graeco-Roman style columns between two
quarter circles top and bottom with their ends pointing towards the
guests. The central arch marries them into a single unit. For very
small venues, this setup alone provides an entirely appropriate

But don’t feel wedded to this
setup. As the venues get larger, the colonnade arch system needs to be
expanded to keep attention, focus eyes on the bridal party and fill
volume spaces. Here are some ideas:
Set fluted pedestals that coordinate with the columns symmetrically on
either side of the arch system. For visual effect, the pedestal heights
may get smaller and smaller as they get farther and farther away from
Also, place floral urns on top of
these pedestals to raise the height. If a pipe and drape backdrop is
being used behind the arch system then be sure the pedestals extend to
the ends of the backdrop but not beyond the ends.
Extend Down the Aisle
Think about visual depth by setting the coordinating pedestals down the
runway or aisle. They may be topped by candles, vases or floral
displays and this joins the entire seating area with the bridal stage
as a single unit.
Turn it Around
For an uncommonly interesting look, the entire arch system may be
reversed. Just rotate the traditional layout 180 degrees so the curves
face towards the guests. Or, reverse two of the four quarter circles to
create an S-shape, or add a third set of quarter circles to extend the
width of the wedding arch.
