    1. An asymmetrical wedding arch that you could DIY with any flowers, draping, or additional greenery that you want. (Yup, it'll come in two pieces so you may also split 'em up and put each one in different areas of your wedding if you're feeling jiggy like that.)

    Pro-tip: Wrap chicken wire around these stands to easily stick real or faux flowers without using foam and without the risk of them falling off on your special day Adhere the chicken wire to the stands using zip ties (often sold with the chicken wire but you could also grab 'em separately). And yes, clearly, we've done enough DIY-ing in our lifetimes to be able to help you out with this one. Thank us later, K? 😘
