Many brides are looking for creative DIY ideas for both their ceremony and reception. I’m sure you’ve heard this one before, but I thought this photo taken by New York-based photographer Jen Huang was a great visual.
I didn’t interview the bride and groom so I’ll admit I’m making up a tip to match with this photo, but I think it works.
The chuppah used at this couple’s ceremony resembles a patchwork quilt. Some couples will send relatives and friends a piece of cloth and ask them to decorate the piece. Once each piece is returned to the couple, they’ll sew them all together, making a beautiful and meaningful chuppah.
If you’re not Jewish, you can still use this idea to make a personalized canopy to stand under for your ceremony.
