I’ve been coached by my wife, who’s motto is “If you’re going to build it, over build it.”

For your project, I would add a board with a graceful arch stretching between the verticals at the top of the verticals.
I really don’t care for screws, so I would peg the top the the verticals and the stretcher to the top and verticals using a contrasting wood.
