That is really gorgeous - maybe it is something they can keep after the wedding. The reds are very rich - great job!

I think it is very pretty, but what is a chuppah cloth used for?

You must have felt a little extra special standing underneath the Chuppah Cloth knowing that you and your aunt made it. It is beautiful. For Holidays you could use the Cloth on your buffet (I would protect it with a piece of glass cut to the table's size), or you could hang or drape for display on holidays. It could hang like a canopy within a frame, but may not hang well if hung vertically. However you use it, it will be lovely.

Thanks everyone. Beth5646, a chuppah cloth tied to 4 poles is used as a canopy in a Jewish wedding. The bride and groom stand underneath the cloth during the ceremony. My husband is Jewish and I am Chinese. The color red is very prominent in Chinese weddings, it symbolizes love, joy, good luck, & happiness, so I incorporated both of our backgrounds together in our wedding.

The picture opened and I thought, "That is absolutely beautiful." I love the red and flowers on the poles. I think you couldn't help be extra happy standing under it.

that is a gorgeous chuppah! why not loan it out to other kallahs for their weddings? It would make a nice canopy over your bed, too.

What a WONDERFUL keepsake you now have from your wedding. It's GORGEOUS! I would have never thought of hanging it over the bed, but that WOULD be really pretty. On another note, about a year ago I was at a surprise birthday party, and the lady who was sitting at the table next to me had one of those seatbelt purses. It was SO nice! I've wanted one ever since -- ha! And on ANOTHER note (you're probably thinking, is she ever going to shut up?), I wish you'd post a picture of you in your wedding dress, too!

I sent this on to my dil last year and her mother made this in the silks that dil had brought back from China. It was just wonderful. Thank you so much for posting this. They just lent it to a friend for her wedding yesterday and they use it as a wall hanging. A wonderful piece of art for the wall. My sil ended up finishing the edges and she sewed in loops to hang this on the wall.
