How to Create a Custom Huppah (Wedding Canopy)

 

Our friends at MMD Events in Tampa, Florida have shared with us an explanation of how they created the perfect, custom made Huppah for a client's wedding.  

 

“We were contacted by a florist that needed our help, and he needed it fast. We had just three weeks to design, create, and make a custom Huppah.  This Huppah was a custom, one of a kind design that the bride wanted and was set on having. We knew exactly what products we needed, and we knew we could get all of them at Rose Brand.

 

We ordered the Tendo Box Truss Covers to cover the truss structure.  So when we added our up-lighting  into the Huppah, the truss would be covered but  would still glow. At the base of the truss, we constructed four custom boxes to put the lighting into. We also ordered Voile sheer fabric that we custom cut and sewed together. The four layers of this fabric were connected at the top of the Huppah for covering. Once this Huppah was all put together the final result was remarkable. The bride and florist were both blown away by what we created."
