@soontobeMrsBoo:  pronounce/kiss/break glass/recessional

I’m the Christian half in an interfaith wedding and have found a book by Devon Lerner (a reform Rabbi) tremendously helpful, it’s called Celebrating Interfaith Marriages. She addresses this one in the book and that’s her suggestion as well.

at my sister’s wedding breaking the glass was at the very end of the ceremony, though I have seen it done after exchanging rings, too.  

And the Hora is the BEST party starter there is – Jewish or not! It’s a bit terrifying being put up in the chair but super fun and you won’t fall!  So much fun! I am Jewish (fi is not) and our ceremony is secular, too but I REALLY want to do the HORA – he doesnt but honestly I don’t think it will even be an option – someone is going to request it!  My sister’s wedding had the longest hora of all time – everyone kept wanting more lol. ah so fun!

The breaking of the glass is the very last piece. Often followed by a kiss (if you are not orthodox) and recessional.

Honestly, consider having Yichud after. It is private time with just the two of you. very special part of the ceremony.


Lastly, just saw your post about the Ketubah. I recommend it. There are some secular beautiful ones but it has a lot of meaning, states rights for you as his wife and is a beautiful piece of art for your home.
