Let Your Ketubah Inspire Your Chuppah

Top 7 Examples of Chuppahs Inspired by Ketubahs

Your ketubah, or Jewish marriage contract, is truly a work of art that reflects you and your fiance’s style and artistic taste.  With so much effort being put into choosing the right ketubah, it makes perfect sense for your ketubah to be an inspiration for other elements of your wedding, or your life!  We love the idea of ketubah-inspired chuppah designs!  It may take some creativity, but the results can be magical!  Here are 6 examples we’re loving:

#1 - Nature-Inspired Trees & Branches

This example was a chuppah commissioned for a Tu B’shvat engagement and summer garden wedding. Symbolic elements, like blooming almond trees and the Seven Species, beautifully combine with personalized details, like the couple’s names over two peacocks and gold trim.  The couple was so in love with the design that they commissioned Marlena for a coordinating Tu B’shvat ketubah and tablecloth.
