Once assembling the wedding arch, you have to take care of the finishing touches. Fill the pocket holes with plugs and then fill all the gaps with filler. Smooth the surface with 120-220 grit sandpaper and then apply a few coats of stain / paint to enhance the look of the arch and protect the elements from decay
