The chuppah represents a Jewish home symbolized by the cloth canopy and the four poles. Just as a chuppah is open on all four sides, so was the tent of Abraham open for hospitality. Thus, the chuppah represents hospitality to one's guests.
This "home" initially lacks furniture as a reminder that the basis of a Jewish home is the people within it, not the possessions.
A chuppah can be made of any material. Silks, satins and organzas are increasingly common, and can often be customized or personalized to suit the couple's unique interests and occupations.
In a spiritual sense,
in a spiritual sense, the covering of the chuppah represents the presence of God over the covenant of marriage. As a man's kipa (skull cap) served as a reminder of the Creator above all, (also a symbol of separation from God), so the chuppah was erected to signify that the ceremony and institution of marriage has divine origins.
The groom enters the chuppah first to represent that it is like his home or garment. When the bride then enters the chuppah it is as though the groom is providing her with shelter or clothing, and he thus publicly demonstrates his new responsibilities toward her.
The practice of the groom lifting the bride's veil is based upon the story of Jacob mistakenly marrying Leah because her face was veiled. His intended bride was Rachel.
