    FYI, if requesting one by phone, "chuppa" is pronounced "huppa" ;-)

        So, chuppa is actually for Jewish weddings - it has to have 4 posts and a cover for Jewish weddings - but it does look nice on the beach which is probably why so many other people use it...
        I wanted something simpler but nice - the one I think I'm going to have is an arch draped with white linen and flowers only at the top. If you want to check it out, here's the link

        it's picture number 4..
        It's exactly what I was looking for..

          I found this out the hard way when I was telling a Jewish friend all about how I wanted this really fancy CHuppa at my wedding. She corrected me, "ah, it's actually pronounced Hoopa" oh well, at least I knew what it looked like

            I like the Chuppa. I asked for that as well. I think it looks great and quite romantic.

              I love the look of the Chuppa on the beach, just wondering how much one of these would cost to have?

                We had a beautiful arch - not like the one that Maura posted above!
                But we weren't at a Dreams place so I don't know if they'd be able to do it this way.
                The rest of the aisle was decorated with tiki torches (which they never lit... not sure why).

                I even got to watch the guys make it - and cut down the coconuts for the decoration.

                  I am getting married at Dreams (Cabo) and I love the one Cabobridey (holly) had. Hers was one that she rented from Cabo Flowers. I emailed the Picture to Yarai, my WC at Dreams and she said she could replicate that one for $285. Just a plain chuppa with minimal decoration was $200.

                  Don't know if this info helps anyone, but here it is, thought I'd share!

                    Wow D, that is not that much more to have it decorated. You should go for it :)

                      Thats cheap. I rented mine that looked the same but different colors for $400 from Florenta.
