Origins of the Chuppah

The Jewish wedding chuppah has a long and meaningful history when it comes to bonding two people together in marriage. Chuppah literally means "canopy" or "covering" in Hebrew and is what Jewish couples stand under during their wedding ceremony. The structure is meant to symbolize the home that they will build together in the coming years.

While a Jewish wedding without a chuppah is still considered legitimate, it is widely known as a basic requirement for a traditional ceremony. In more conservative sects of Judaism, it is recommended that there be an open sky above the chuppah, which made outdoor weddings a common practice.

However, if the wedding was held indoors, a special opening was built into the ceiling so that it could be open to the sky during the ceremony. Ultimately, the chuppah represents the presence of God watching over the newly devoted couple.

This lovely canopy not only could be used for the traditional wedding ceremony, but it would be so pretty in the yard or a large patio or porch as summer decor for any entertaining occasion. The use of flower pots for the base is so practical and can be repurposed later if needed. This would be pretty strung with tiny rice lights in the folds of the flowing fabric, or even led solar lights. So,pretty, thanks for sharing a great idea,
