It is open on all sides, just as Abraham and Sarah had their tent open all sides to welcome people in unconditional hospitality.The Ashkenazi custom is to have the chuppah ceremony outside under the stars, as a sign of the blessing given by God to the patriarch Abraham, that his children shall be "as the stars of the heavens" (Genesis 15:5). The Ashkenazi custom is that the chatan and kallah wear no jewelry under the chuppah (marriage canopy).
And at the ceremony, the chatan wears a kittel, the traditional white robe worn on Yom Kippur.
The number seven also symbolizes the wholeness and completeness that they cannot attain separately.
The kallah then settles at the chatan's right-hand side.
The chatan now takes the wedding ring in his hand, and in clear view of two witnesses, declares to the kallah, "Behold, you are betrothed unto me with this ring, according to the law of Moses and Israel." He then places the ring on the forefinger of the bride's right hand.
According to Jewish law, this is the central moment of the wedding ceremony, and at this point the couple is fully married.
