15 Ideas for a Fabulous Floral Chuppah – Wedding Canopy

The chuppah, a Jewish wedding canopy with four open sides and four poles, is a central part of a Jewish wedding. It represents the home you will make with your partner, and it is where you will say your vows and become a family. The chuppah can be handheld, with four people of your choosing holding each pole, or it can be freestanding.

To decorate your chuppah, be inspired by the rest of your wedding. You can create a seamless and coherent look by using the same colors as the rest of the décor and incorporating flowers that are in your bouquet, the centerpieces and the other decorations. The chuppah can also provide an opportunity to incorporate something sentimental into your wedding, like your grandfather’s tallit (Jewish prayer shawl) or a flower that is meaningful to you.

Here are 15 ideas for a floral chuppah that represents your style and wedding vision.
