I haven’t done this yet but I plan to. The costs are outrageous aren’t they?

@bride71413:  I didn’t make my chuppah, but based on the construction of it, it doesn’t seem like it’s too difficult.

If you conduct a search, you should be able to find a really beautiful DIY chuppah by another bee…. if only I could remember her name.

@bride71413:  The Chuppah isn’t really a central feature in this photo, but you get the general idea.  We got it from an artist who does fabric painting. It was really quite lovely.

@bride71413:  I recommend using a sheer fabric.  It looks really good.  Ours was more simple than you’d probably want, but you could probably use ours as a base and drape more fabric from the top of the poles, and over the bases.

Ours was an organza tablecloth with flocking and satin edges from one of the online linen stores, and 4 bases from Home Depot ($20 each).  More of the flocking material would have been available.  The trick is getting it all assembled at the venue right before the wedding.
