How do you make a simple wedding arbor?

Recently, we hosted a wedding for the loveliest family.

Their son, who is in the Coast Guard and their precious daughter in law decided to get married here on the farm.

This was the first wedding in our new barn. What fun!

They wanted a rustic elegant look for their wedding.

We had birch logs from a winter storm, so we used one of the logs as the base of the arbor.

One thing that I love about the arbor is that it is easy to remove and use again for the next wedding.

Whether you’re eloping or throwing a large wedding, an arbor is a beautiful way to add some extra flair to your ceremony. Not only are they easy to make, but they’re also really affordable! In this tutorial, we’ll show you how to make your own DIY Spring Wedding Arbor in just a few simple steps. So get ready to wow your guests with this stunning addition to your big day!

We had two posts in the barn that hold up the loft. The posts are about 20 feet apart.

We decided that we would install a cable system that we could hang the log on.

We can also use this cable system for other ideas as well.

And the best part is that it only takes two minutes to set it up or take it down.

We started my measuring and marking 8′ on each of the posts.

We predrilled a hole using my drill. I got this set of drills earlier this year and I love it. We then screwed in a large cup hook into each post.

We got a total of four cup hooks, two for the posts and two for the birch log. Then we added a turnbuckle onto one of the cup hooks. Make sure that the turnbuckle is untightened all the way, before you add the cable on.

You will want the extra length of the turnbuckle to tighten the cable all the way.

Planning a wedding can be incredibly stressful.

But it doesn’t have to be! If you’re looking for an easy DIY project, why not make your own spring wedding arbor?

This tutorial is simple and takes only a few hours to complete.

Plus, it’ll add a touch of elegance to your big day. So what are you waiting for?

Cable hanging, barn, tightening of cable

We bought a 1/8 in. x 30 ft. Vinyl-Coated Galvanized Wire Rope Kit that included 2 thimbles and 6 clamps.

This vinyl-coated wire rope kit resists rust for long-lasting use.

This was perfect and it had everything that we needed. We threaded one end of the cable through a two clamps, then through the thimble and then back through the clamps and tightened the nuts. Then we hung the thimble onto the cup end of the turn buckle.

We measured and cut the cable to the length that we needed and an extra 6 inches. Then we threaded the other end of the cable through two clamps and the other thimble-and back through the two clamps.

Then hung the thimble onto the cup hook on the other post. Then tighten the turnbuckle until the cable is tight. Once this is done, the rest is easy.

So there you have it!

How wide should a wedding arch be?

The perfect arch should be somewhere between 7 and 8 feet high, and about 6 feet wide.

You want to have enough space for you, your true love and the officiant to stand between the two sides of the arbor.

We predrilled holes six feet apart on the birch log, then screwed in the two remaining cup hooks.

Then we just hung the birch log onto the cable.

Simple DIY Wedding Arch Ideas

The bride to be wanted the arch to be simple.

We saw some cherry blossoms on a gorgeous tree on the side of the road that would be absolutely perfect for a Spring wedding, not to mention that it was quite affordable as well.

So, that was our inspiration.

We are draping white chiffon fabric over the birch log, and adding the cherry blossoms, Loosestrife Gooseneck flowers and eucalyptus for the florals.

We started by adding chicken wire around the birch log, zip tying it together to keep it secure.

Then we just started poking in the cherry blossoms.

Beautiful interiors don’t have to come with an outrageous price tag. My style is what I like to call Vintage French Farmhouse, I love mixing decorating styles, especially opposites like the glitz of a chandelier dripping in crystals with a chair upholstered in worn aged leather. Refined, yet not too formal-but, livable, elegant traditional design, adding warmth and vintage elements.
