Opinions on chupahs, arches or other ideas??

I really want to do hanging flowers and crystals at my ceremony. I have 2 pictures of the idea in my bio under flowers.  I originally wanted to string them between the palm trees at my ceremony site but it's not possible. So now I need a new idea on where to hang them.....Do you think I could get the same effect using a chupah or arch or do you have any other ideas of something to use?  Also, where do you get chupahs and arches and how much do they cost??  TIA!!

    good idea to call around. i know my florist can get an arch but not a chupah but i'm not sure if an arch is the way to go.......

    Your florist can definitely help with this.We're getting our Chuppah from our florist. They can range anywhere from a few hundred dollars to a few thousand. I think ours is somewhere around $700. I love the way arches and chuppahs look. They are so pretty.

    I dont know to be honest, it was all lumped into my contract but I can tell you what my total is and what it includes if that helps you any. I think they are using willow branches if that helps too lol

    Alissa - that would be awesome. i can probably figure it out from there.  i love your branches arch.  eagles.fan1234@yahoo.com TIA!jaime - i love the way chupahs look also. i'm on a pretty strict budget of  $300 for all floral and ceremony decorations.  $700 for an arch is a little much for me but does that include all the flowers your getting??

    I was quoted around $600 for a Bamboo Huppah so I ended up having it DIYed. Courtney bought it from me after my Wedding.

    Just an FYI, we are having hanging flowers from branches for our escort card table. Our florist told us to use hyacinth because they are cheaper and durable and look great.

    My chuppah is actually $500. That includes the flowers on the chuppah but not the floral for the rest of the wedding. I wish!

    I know Michael's sells arches so you can DIY... they're like $60. I don't think they sell chupahs though.
