    Hi ladies!

    Just wondering, how much fabric (I'm thinking organza) do you need for the average Chuppah/Huppah? How big are they generally? Thanks!!

        I had to get at least 21 feet worth of organza for mine. Our arch is about 7 feet high and 4-5 feet wide. I think it all depends on the measurements of the arch.

          Well, If this helps any.. Were handmaking our bamboo arch and its gonna be 8 foot tall and about 5 feet wide.. were doing 3 different colors.. so that puts us at at least 21ft of each color. To help you understand my bamboo arch, here is my inspiration picture

            Yay!!!! I've been racking my brain on how much fabric I should be looking to buy. I don't know exactly how big the arch is, but I'm going to go w/ about 22 feet of fabric per color. Thanks ladies!!!

              I love the look with a bunch of fabric! Especially when the breeze kicks up. If I could figure out how to post pictures I'd add the one I sent to my WC for our arch :)

                    How did you make your wedding arch and where did you get married. We are getting married on St john and we can't find an arbor anywhere!

                      I think to be safe you should be using at least 22 feet of fabric, better to have more than less right.
