Post your Chuppah pics and inspiration pics!

Recommended Posts

I love the capiz shells.  I would love to have these as well, but I agree that $70 is a little too much.  Does anyone know if you can find them at Michael's or another craft store?  Its getting close to my date and I don't want to order online.

Here is what I just made for the Chuppah at my resort!  I saw a pic of hanging orchids and absolutely loved it! They are supposed to be purple, but after ordering 2 separate times, I gave up and went with the pink! Here I only have like 8 completed, but I did 20 overall, 8 for the back of the chuppa and 6 on each side.  We just got some orchid Lei's which I took apart, fishing line, and some lobster claw hooks.  This way you just string the line around the chuppa and clip to the other side, so no tying (we left some room at the top with no flowers for this).

 

This is my cat trying not to be naughty...

I got it from save.on.crafts.com.  I am both impressed and disappointed by them...so hard to give a review...

 

Like I said, I got my first order (fake lei's and freeze dried petals for flower girl basket) and both were supposed to be lavender, and they were both pink. The petals were just different colored than the online pic, but the lei's I accidentally ordered the pink orchid lei instead of the purple one, so that was my fault. I contacted them and they refunded my whole order (shipping and all) and even sent me a return slip to return that order for free. So I was happy until I ordered again, the purple lei's and some even darker purple petals, and both were pink again.....a different color pink, but pink nonetheless...

 

They did say, you can contact them to get another picture sent, so if going with them I would definitely recommend that. Otherwise their customer service and prices are fantastic!!!

I got the lanterns from justartifacts.com, they had the best prices (well as far as I found).  We actually didnt light them and they still looked great

Hi Karen,

We absolutely love how your chuppah turned out. The idea of incorporating a glass beaded curtain was brilliant! If it's okay with you, we would love to feature it on CasaSugar as a part of a round up we're doing on inspiring ceremony decor. :)

Here is mine.  I so badly wanted the capiz chandelier and I'm glad they were able to put it up but it was all I could hear during the ceremony!

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
