I’m hoping to build an arbor for our ceremony. This chuppah is our inspiration (though our arbor will be much smaller!):
Where do I find the birch poles? Everyone I looked online seems to sell them for $200 or more. Does anyone else have suggestions on where to find the birch??

One alternative would be to contact a firewood company and ask them if you can get some poles before they are cut into firewood lengths.
You could also contact your local arborists to see if you can get some branches when they are pruning.
Try craigslist. You can search all New York State craigslist sites here:
Do a search for birch poles, branches and firewood.

I was going to go with birch poles but it wnded up beong more expensive than I thought. Plus I needed to get additional accesories for it…….twine, planters. etc…. I bought a Arbor off Etsy. I may sell it after the wedding. I put a post on the site if you search for Chuppa you can see the picture. It was very inexpensive and its beautiful. I am goongto do a silk fabric forthe roof and have flowers and vines along the top.
Oh btw the boirch poles were coming from a whilesale flower exchange in Boston. My florist was going to buy them. They have bamboo as well.
