Chuppahs are a big part of Jewish weddings. The chuppah is a canopy that the couple stands under during their wedding ceremony. It is used to represent the home that the newlywed couple will build together. A traditional chuppah is usually a cloth or a sheet that is stretched over 4 standing poles, but nowadays, they are growing more and more ornate and elaborate. From lights to flowers, couples are striving to decorate the chuppah to be much more than just a piece of fabric supported over 4 poles.
|I love the way this couple arranged the fabric to look more like a gazebo.|
|A great way to get more use out of the chuppah after the ceremony is to move it over the couple's sweetheart table during the reception.|
|This suspended chuppah is great for a modern wedding.|
