Chuppah and view?

Does the chuppah block the view of the bridal party and certain guests attending? Future MIL wants us to have one but I'm worried it'll block views and make it harder on my photographer. My FH said it's not important to him (they didn't raise him with many Jewish traditions). Thinking were not gonna use it.

    Chuppas are used at weddings all of the time and guests can see. Additionally photographers move all around during the ceremony to capture photos. So they’ll be fine and I’m sure they’ve worked with it before.

    Ours did not block the view. You just have to have it high enough so it doesn't cover up the people.

    That's a gorgeous photo! Maybe it's the angle but I'm worried about the bridesmaids looking directly into a pole

    Our wedding party was angled out, not in a straight line.

    I see. Thanks! I was told we would have to stand in it for the ceremony and couldn't be in front. Couldn't tell on the 1st pic that your sides were covered as well

    Gotcha. I’m not Jewish only my husband is and he didn’t have any requests besides having the chuppah and stepping on the glass. He isn’t big on following all the Jewish traditions despite his mother’s wishes haha.

    If the poles are really wide or ornately decorated, it could block the view (just saying).
