I’ve posted about this on other boards, but thought it might be particularly relevant for the brides here. I just finished making my own chuppah (picture below). Instructions for making it (including materials and costs) can be found at this link.

Thanks for sharing! Our florist quoted us at $2000 for the chuppah and I found rentals to be anywhere from $500 up. Would you mind sharing the costs to make this?

@rachel – I’m DIYing our Chuppah using PVC piping, umbrella stands and curtains. So far, we’ve spent about $30 on the PVC piping and tools, $60 on the umbrella stands and $60 on 6 sets of curtains from Ikea. I’m going to use 4 set of curtains around the chuppah and sew the another set into some sort of covering and I got the extras in case I mess up. I’ll try to take pictures and post them when I finally sew the top.

Rachael823, including the decorations, it was $162.02. The board seems to have mangled my link to the instructions and cost breakdown, so I’ll try again: Here it is.
