Creating an alter

For those of you not getting married in a church how are you creating an alter? I'm getting married outsidea nd I'm struggling with ideas to make that area distinguishable from the rest of the ceremony space. I love chuppahs but I don't know where to rent one. Anyone else had one?

    Ask you florist....sometimes they have stuff to make it look more altar-y, with the gazebo, arch, or chuppah.

    If you or your FI are really crafty, you could always make one. I know a few ladies around the boards that have done just that. I know you can rent arches at Hobby Lobby. We had one for our grand entrance for the reception.

    Thanks ladies. I am actually not using a florist for the wedding. We're havving all the bouquets/boutonieres made of buttons and I'm using candles and books as centerpieces.

    I have looked up some directions of how to make my own but it totally makes me nervous. I'll check out hobby lobby
