As more and more couples adopt DIY lifestyles, wedding trends have followed suit. Putting your handmade touch on the big day means money saved and materials re-used or rethought. Perhaps the most memorable feature of a wedding is the actual spot the ceremony takes place — often under an arbor or canopy. (At least this is where the most photos are taken!) And here, the DIY movement has flourished with the help of bamboo.
With an almost unlimited scope of designs, a bamboo arbor can act as a canvas upon which couples can build their own signature styles. A simple, easy-to-build arbor can be customized and adorned with just about anything — fabric, flowers, shells, lanterns, branches, and the list goes on. Best of all, once all the rice has been thrown and the wedding guests have journeyed home, bamboo arbors can be relocated to the backyard where they make excellent trellises for grape vines and ivy!
Check out what some recently-married couples did with their bamboo arbors! (If Cali Bamboo products have made an appearance in your wedding, share your creation by sending images to [email protected]ibamboo.com.)
