We rented one! We had an acrylic chuppah (think very very modern and simple). A lot of people have their florists make one if they want the more natural look (we got married at a contemporary art museum, so that didn’t work for us!). And still others made their own. It depends on your budget and how easy transport/setup would be for you! There are some DIY instructions here and if you google it.

our florist is making it. the route you go will depend on how much you want to spend. if your wedding is in an area with a big jewish population, there are probably rentals available. 

a few florists quoted me over $1k for a bare-bones chuppah. i finally found one who’s doing it for $300.

Glad you asked – I’ve been wondering about this too!

@crayfish: Do you mind if I ask where you rented from?

@mightywombat: I rented from Arc de Belle in San Diego (got married there, not Boston where I live). I think they have branches in a couple other places, too. Great selection of different styles, I was really happy with them!

We ordered natural birch poles from a company called Natures All, Inc and a family member sewed the canopy out of linens we owned (a pretty table cloth would do the job just as well)– the whole thing cost about $100.

We are planning to make ours with birch poles and use our father’s tallises as the canopy.

We sent out squares to friends and family to decorate and I sewed them into a quilt. At the reception, people signed cloth that I’ll integrate into the border. The poles? $2 PVC pipe spray painted silver.

Excuse the poor photo, we’re still waiting on the professional shots. 

And the Christmas Tree. We got married in a Unitarian Universalist Church.

we made one with bamboo poles and a tallit, but it ended up not looking as good as the one they had at our synagogue, so we just went with that…
