 We are not Jewish, but we did sign a marriage covenant during the ceremony, which is a Jewish tradition. It is a list of promises to each other that we will frame and display. I’m not sure how recognizable this is as “Jewish,” but that is the tradition it comes from.

freckledfrida :  Will you be doing the 7 blessings in Hebrew and English or just English? My fiancé is Jewish and I’m catholic and we’re trying to decide what all we want to incorporate.

napabride17 :  I know it’s been a while but this thread got brought back up. I was wondering what you decided to do for your ceremony! Your wedding is one month before mine! I got so many useful ideas from this thread! 

My Fiance and I are two non-religious Jews getting married on a Saturday. We will be married under a free standing chuppah. We will be signing a ketubah. We will break glass (that will be turned into a mezuzah), and we will do the horrah. Ceremony is being performed by a reform Jewish woman who was raised orthodox and studied anthropology. She’s so cool, very into rituals. 

We also will be having a few minutes to share a meal together (bread and wine) away from the guests right after our ceremony.
