A Chuppah is not only a nice Jewish tradition, they’re terribly lovely to look at and could only offend someone who was looking for a reason to get upset.  Communion is a BIG thing with the Catholics, but certainly not something that would bother anyone else if there was a moment or two in your ceremony for it.  Readings from both cultures would be a nice counterpoint to the joining of the couples beliefs and you gotta stomp the glass at the end, IT’S FUN!

I’ve went to a wedding with an Episcopalian Bride and a Jewish Groom, they had a priest and a rabbi, they kind of traded off, doing each part one after the other, I really liked it and thought it added a nice touch to the ceremony since we can’t all be from the same block in religion town, can we?

@MUAbride2be:  I’m Jewish and my fiance is Episcopalian. For our ceremony, we’re having a non-denominational officiant (he officiates Christian, Jewish, Muslim, LGBT weddings, etc.) and we’re incorporating a few traditions into our ceremony that represent both of us. We’re having a unity candle ceremony and my fiance is breaking the glass at the end of the ceremony. 

We wanted to have a rabbi and a minister, but while the rabbi was happy to officiate by himself, he wouldn’t officiate alongside a minister.
