Drape the top frame with tulle- 4’&4’&6’&6’= 20 feet plus some extra for draping-say 25 feet

Drape the 4 upright poles-7’6″ x 4=30 feet-plus some ectra to tie in a loop on the top-35 feet

Therefore 60 feet or 20 yards should do.

Add 4 of whatever you choose to decorate the 4 corners.

@julies1949: ditto

As far as purchasing the tulle, you should be able to get it for just about $1 per yard and I would go for the yardage as opposed to the rolls becasue the rolls are more narrow. I got my tulle here: http://www.rycotrim.com/contact-us.htm and you can call and place an order to be shipped. As a bonus, the staff/owner are pretty crafty and they can also offer advise. It’s an owner operated business and I find their prices on tulle and ribbon to be cheaper than the big box stores. They also have tulle of varying stiffness and quality. I don’t think you will need the fancy tulle for a chuppa as no one will be touching it to know how soft it is.

Good luck in your endeavor.
