The Chuppah in a Jewish wedding ceremony represents the home the bride and groom will establish together. It is open on all four sides. This open structure recalls the biblical tent of Abraham open for hospitality. This “home” lacks furniture as a reminder that the basis of a home is the people within it, not the possessions.

Custom wedding canopies can be created as well for non-Jewish or non-religious weddings including mandap for Indian or Hindu weddings.

In a traditional Indian wedding most of the wedding ceremony is held in Mandap, a canopy that is supported by four pillars that symbolize the parents of the bride and groom. The pillars portray the role that both the parents have played, in bringing up their children. According to Hindu tradition and custom all Hindu weddings should take place in Mandap or canopy.
