If the chuppah is build on a platform, care must be taken that the steps leading up to it are not too steep, nor too narrow for the bride in her wedding dress. It must also be solid enough to support the groom when his foot breaks the glass at the end of the ceremony. The platform must have enough room for the bride and groom, both sets of parents and the rabbi. There should also be space for a table and possibly a microphone on a stand.
