Why do you have to have the glass breaking? Did they say something to you about it? Also, just curious, why are you so opposed to breaking the glass? It’s so much fun! I was raised Christian and my husband was raised Jewish but he is atheist and I am agnostic, we wrote our ceremony and had no mention of god or religion or anything like that but the one tradition that we included was breaking the glass because it was fun! Everyone loved it!

Anyways, I don’t think you need to have it and I think his family can get over it if you don’t do it!

@nomaderica22: Have you said anything to your family about it? Maybe they wouldnt have such an issue with one tradition from one side and not one from the other. It doesnt hurt to ask! For our ceremony, I included an Irish blessing (I called it a reading on our program) so that we had something from my side as well.

I would talk to both sets of parents. My parents – especially my father – are very observant Catholics. FI & I were raised Catholic, and are not – he considers himself agnostic, and I’m athiest. When we mentioned we wanted a secular ceremony at our reception site, my dad (who I was expecting would pull for a church wedding) didn’t hesitate, said “Whatever you want.”

You might be surprised.
