Planning a Jewish Marriage Ceremony

Sep 4, 2008
When your fiance begins to talk marriage, you know that you are one step closer to achieving the dreams that you both have shared from the moment you met.

If you are Jewish, then you probably want to be looking at a Jewish wedding. A Jewish marriage is one that is both exciting and instrumental in both the couple and their families coming together and uniting as one.

Planning your Jewish marriage ceremony ahead of time is a great way to have everything organized and in place before the big day. Utilize these ideas and make use of all of the resources you have to make the planning process a smooth one.

Contacting the Synagogue Where You Will be Married

It is best to contact the rabbi and the synagogue that will be marrying you. You may need to attend special classes months in advance before the rabbi will perform the ceremony. At this time he will go over the rules of the Jewish marriage with you and find out what your needs are when it comes to planning your wedding ceremony.

Design your Chuppah

A chuppah is traditionally a white tent or awning that is placed over the area where the couple is to be married. The chuppah can be as simple as some white muslin that is displayed in a canopy fashion or it can be adorned with lights and flowers creating a more elaborate effect depending on the taste of the bride and groom.

Purchase Your Wedding Rings

The exchange of wedding rings is traditionally used to fulfill the requirement of kesef. This is a very symbolic moment for Jewish couples. Take the time to find the right wedding rings that will fit in with your ceremony. Whether you choose a matching style or more individual styles, be assured that your wedding rings are a good investment into your future together.

Set the Date

Plan ahead for the perfect date to have your wedding. Setting the date right away helps the planning and organization process to go a lot smoother. Depending on where you are planning to get married, the time of the year is important. If you get married indoors, any time of the year will be sufficient, but if you are planning an outdoor wedding, choosing a warmer month when the weather will be warm, will be the best choice.

Taking many factors into consideration is what is needed for planning the perfect Jewish marriage ceremony.
