A Jewish wedding ceremony is filled with a number of different traditions and rituals that have been passed down for centuries. As the years have gone on, some of these rituals and traditions have remained, but have experienced a modern makeover. One of the Jewish traditions that couples have enjoyed making their own recently is the wedding chuppah.
What is a Wedding Chuppah?
Here is a quick overview for anyone who might be helping to plan a wedding for friends or is marrying into the faith. A wedding chuppah is a canopy of sorts that the new couple will stand under during the wedding ceremony. The chuppah as a whole is a symbol of the new home the couple will be creating together, with the sides open to welcome friends and family.
How can We Make it Our Own?
In the past, the wedding chuppah was simple four poles or rods held by friends or placed in the ground, with the top being a simple white quilt or sheet. Now, more couples are looking for ways to make their wedding chuppah something even more special.
If you want a more modern feel for your wedding ceremony, consider a very sleek and bold chuppah. A nice white, rectangular sheet with a black outline can help create a modern look while helping your other decorations pop.
Flowers are always a great way to incorporate your wedding colors during your ceremony. Flowers can also create a more romantic theme during your ceremony. Along the same line with flowers, you can create a full nature theme by using branches and leaves for your chuppah.
