If you’re not feeling creative then hire or buy the items you require.

If you are looking for something totally unique then there are people  around who you can commission to make exactly what you want.

Whilst Macramé can be applied to many aspects of your wedding the most stunning ways to have a big impact on your wedding day is have a macramé wedding ceremony backdrop or arch.

You may style it in a variety of ways.

Hang it on the wall if it’s an indoor ceremony or suspended from a tree or an arch if it’s outdoors.

You can take a simple arch and hang a macramé piece on it – and voilà that’s your arch ready, and what a statement it can make!

The macramé hanging can cover the whole arch or only part of it – it depends on the look you want to achieve.

Think about adding some interwoven greenery or attach some blooms to complement your bouquet, though really a beautiful macramé piece needs nothing added to it.

Add some candles or lanterns so your backdrop will be highlighted even more to complete the picture.

As with all wedding styling try and personalize your wedding arch as much as possible. This not only makes your wedding as individual as you are but completes the picture you are trying to create for your wedding day
