        Tara - I know that Tasha's dad built hers for her. I think her mom sewed the fabric part & they brought it with them and got the structural stuff from a home store in Cabo.

        When I started planning I totally thought I could make a chuppah myself...got over that! I'll see if I can find the DIY resources I collected...

          If you wanted you could make something very easily out of PVC and just spray paint it. That is what we did - only we misscalculated that it had to be burried in the sand and it was too short... pretty but short

          I actually wish I had used 2" pvc instead of 1" and made it slightly larger & taller. We got everything at a local plumbing store and the whole thing cost less than $80 dls.

          Fabric: we bought 20 yards of white tulle and cut and placed onsite ... no sewing just cut to fit and tied to poles with ribbon.

            OK, here is a Martha Stewart article that describes how you can build a basic four post structure (which is what all of these canopies are anyway)...

                You can also rent one in Cabo for $250. It's made of bamboo and has white tulle.
