I also made our huppah and my aunt and uncle helped me with the poles/bases.  Our wedding was very much nature themed and we wanted things to have an organic feeling to them so the poles were branches that my uncle trimmed from his back yard.  I bought fiberglass pots and he put PVC pipe in them and poured plaster in so that they’d have a heavy base to set the poles in.  We still had huppah holders but the bases really helped.

I sewed the huppah using two colors of dupioni silk and painted a line from the sheva brachot in a circle on the middle with sparkly brown fabric paint.  Although I haven’t done it yet at our new place (we moved not too long ago), my intent is to hang the huppah above our bed.

I’m searching like crazy for a pic… one of the most awesome huppah’s I’ve ever seen was actually the brides grandfather’s prayer shawl! It was such a sweet way to honor him. 🙂

I think this one is pretty unique too:

Here’s mine.  The lace that’s hanging down is from my great-grandmother’s wedding dress, which also served as my sister’s chuppah.

Beautiful pictures – keep them coming!

 

Can anyone think of a really filmy, natural (i.e. not polyester) fabric that doesn’t cost a fortune?
