If you're planning a Jewish ceremony, a standout chuppah (a canopy that a Jewish couple stands under at the altar) is a wonderful way to uphold the tradition and put a creative spin on your nuptials. 

While there's definitely nothing wrong with a classically draped chuppah, think of this as a moment to make a statement and include a structure that both complements your ceremony space and showcases your personality as a couple—a bloom-covered chuppah to evoke the feeling of a secret garden, or a lucite chuppah for the ultimate modern décor statement. You can even build an entirely new structure, like a chuppah chandelier or floating installation, for a slightly less traditional take or for an interfaith ceremony.

Jewish or not, any to-be-wed can appreciate the gorgeousness of the below. Check out these ultra-creative chuppahs and chuppah-inspired structures that can inspire your own.
