Kiddush cups have a special place under the chuppah
for a beloved part of the ceremony – the wine!
It’s popular to honor a loved one (for example, your
grandparents) by using their kiddush cups.
You can also personalize the kiddush cups
by engraving them with your names and wedding date.
Kippot (or Yarmulkes) are worn at Jewish weddings as a symbol
of humility and respect for God. Many couples order kippahs for
wedding guests (in black, or their wedding colors)
and personalize each kippah with the couple’s names and wedding date.
The Jewish Wedding Ring must be a solid band.
The circle represents the wholeness of marriage,
and the lack of stones or piercings symbolizes an unbroken union.
Meaning: The Chuppah (or huppah) is the bridal canopy
the couple stands under during the Jewish wedding ceremony.
It literally means “that which covers or floats above,”
and is said to be a spiritual place with a direct gateway to God.
As long as a Jewish marriage is performed
under a chuppah, the wedding can take place in any location,
from a synagogue to a beach to your own backyard.
Origin: The Chuppah is a symbol of the home (tent) of our biblical ancestors Sarah and Abraham, open on all sides so guests would know they were always welcome.
Personalize It: Chuppahs can be designed or decorated to reflect
your personal taste, match your wedding theme
or color palette, or honor loved ones.
You can have your wedding guests
contribute to a patchwork collage chuppah,
or use a tallit (Jewish prayer shawl)
or huppah that belongs to a beloved family member
Meaning: The Ketubah is the Jewish marriage contract
that is signed before the wedding ceremony,
and literally means “writing” or “written”.
Personalize It: Ketubahs are a form of art,
so enjoy the process of finding a ketubah design
that reflects you and your fiancé’s personal style.
Whether it is traditional, modern, 3D,
Watercolor, Paper cut, or include a special or meaningful
photo, the possibilities are nearly endless.
You can also choose ketubah texts such as Orthodox,
Conservative, Reform, Reconstructionist, Egalitarian,
Gender Neutral, Humanistic, Interfaith, or write your own ketubah text.
