Mayesh Design Star: Ceremony Arch

Mayesh Design Star: Ceremony Arch

 

Featuring Japanese flowers from Naniwa Flower Auction, Kaylee designs a beautiful floral arch. The structure is created using a lovely arch from Danner & Soli, which she attached foam cages using zip ties before placing the flowers into place. Archways are perfect for setting the tone of a truly romantic wedding ceremony and this design surely accomplishes that in spades!

Featured flowers: spirea, ranunculus, butterfly ranunculus, acacia foliage, eucalyptus, and roses.

Host: Kaylee Young, Flourish by Kay
Flower Sponsor: Naniwa Flower Auction
Videographer: Logan Martin, Talewind Visuals
Photographer: Maria Lamb Photography
Arch: Danner & Soli
Model: Autumn Johnson

Here are the products/quantities used — aka, the flower recipe:

  • 8 bunch acacia foliage
  • 40 stems spray rose
  • 70 stems spirea
  • 3 bunches eucalyptus
  • 20 stems sweet pea
  • 10 stems tulips
  • 10 stem cappuccino roses
  • 50 stem quicksand roses
  • 2 bunches (40 stems) Japanese Ranunculus

This is how much product it took to cover the front half of the arch, so if Kaylee was creating this same arch for a wedding, she would use double the amount of product to make sure that it was completely covered all the way around.

Also, this arch took Kaylee 3 hours to make by herself. However, if she was designing a similar arch for a wedding, she would have people helping, and would expect to get it done in under 2 hours.

After watching the video, keep scrolling for all of the gorgeous pictures – perfect for pinning!

    This is such a beautiful arch! I’m so in love with that spires. I have a few questions for Kaylee. How long does this design take you to make? Do you produce this all on site for a wedding? Do you have any recommendations for creating a similar look without the use of foam?

    • Kaylee says:

      Hi Kate! This arch took me 3 hours to make by myself. However, if I was designing a similar arch for a wedding, I would have people helping me, and I’d expect to get it done in under 2 hours. We would do it on site so that all the product would stay nice for the ceremony. Id say we would be completely finished with it at least 1-2 hours before the ceremony started.

      As far as using foam goes, I like foam because of the shape it helps me create and the direct source to water that the flowers have. Other options could be weaving vines on the arch and attaching with wire. Attaching flowers that have water tubes on them to the arch with wire. Creating a structure by wrapping chicken wire around the arch to hold water-tubed flowers & greenery in place. Wrapping flowers in eco fresh bouquet’s reusable wet wraps and then attaching them to the arch.

  2. Incredible! And inspiring! What greens did you use?

    Beautiful work Kaylee, it has so much movement!
    I would love to know the bunch quantities required to create this piece if you have that information on hand.
    Thanks!

    I would love to know how much product in each variety you used. So I can get an idea of the cost of this beautiful arch?

  5. Vickie Sorensen says:

    I would love to know how much product was used and the amounts in this lovely!

      Hi Vickie! You and Tiffany both had the same question 🙂 Here are the types and quantities of flowers I used.

      8 bunch acacia foliage

      40 stems spray rose

      70 stems spirea

      3 bunches eucalyptus

      20 stems sweet pea

      10 stems tulips

    Hi Kaylee,
    Beautiful work! Could you explain your decision to leave the bottom legs of the arch exposed?
    Thanks so much!

    • Kaylee says:

      Hey Angela, I just ran out of product! Haha! But I actually don’t mind the way it looks. I like to choose structural or decorative pieces (archways, etc.) that are beautiful on their own, so i don’t always have to feel the need to “hide” them

  7. Gail says:

    how many cages did it take?

    • Kaylee says:

      I used 12 for the front of this arch, so if I were covering an entire arch this size, I would use about 24 more or less.
