We can deliver, set up, decorate and take down Chuppas.
The Chuppah Custom and Symbolism
The chuppah represents a Jewish home symbolized by the cloth canopy and the four poles. The chuppah has no sides or walls, only a cover over the top to show to all that this home is one that will always be open to family and friends. This "home" initially lacks furniture as a reminder that the basis of a home is the people within it, not the possessions. A chuppah symbolizes the home the couple will build together. Today, couples of all faiths enjoy this beautiful wedding tradition.
A Wedding Chuppah has a roof or ceiling. We offer a variety of ceiling fabric colors, styles and textures. A Chuppa used in the evening is often decorated with accent lighting. Beautiful washes of color can provide theatrical highlight or light strands and twinkle lights are also used.
A few things to consider:
- Is the ceiling of the room high enough to accommodate?
- Is the space able to accommodate the dimensions?
- Is there easy access to the room?
- Can the nearly 9 ft. foot poles fit an elevator?
Setting up a Wedding Chuppah is a two person job and has a fair degree of difficulty with approximately a 3 hour time investment. Though some have successfully assembled a Wedding Chuppah, we don't recommend this as a do it yourself project. You will need a ladder and at least one helper.
Chuppahs normally cannot withstand high winds. On a windy day, the fabric will often catch the wind and can act as a sail. High winds tend to make the canopies blow over - or at least blow the decor about. A canopy that is staked to the ground, can be used outside with minimum worry. If the canopy is to be on a hard surface (like cement or on a deck), sand bags may be used. We cannot guarantee that a canopy will withstand extremely windy conditions.
We deliver, set up, decorate and take down chuppahs. We do offer a same day and even a late night arch removal service.
