Hi all! I almost never post over on this board, but I figured this would be the best place for chuppah questions! My fiance and I are planning on building our own chuppah for our wedding later this year, and I was hoping some of you with some experience could help.
Firstly, and I know this sounds like a stupid question, but how did you transport yours to your venue? I'm guessing the best way would either be to bring it in unassembled and finish it there, or to rent or find somebody with a truck to transport it. I probably answered my own question there, but I was looking for more experience on which way was better. I am thinking assembling it there will kind of be a pain, although my venue may let us do that the night before at the rehearsal, which might work out just fine.
My other questions is about requirements. I know that all four sides need to be 'open' as in, not a solid wall and I know the fabric should be attached to the top, but I was thinking about hanging little flowers on strings or strips of fabric or ribbon to the back side to make a cute backdrop, but I wasn't sure if that would still be keeping it open? These are some examples of what I mean:
Would I be better off leaving the back plain, or maybe tying any decorations off to the side (like a curtain would be tied back)? Anything else I should know about building one? Thanks in advance!
