Planning the Ultimate Jewish Wedding for 2021 - What You Will Want to Include?Guest article by Grace Murphy
While 2021 may seem a long way off, for those who are planning a wedding, time is of the essence. Giving yourself months, if not a full year to plan a wedding is the best way to ensure it’s all you had hoped and envisioned, and that you get the date, location, and special touches booked in time. So, if you’re in the beginning stages of planning the ultimate Jewish wedding for 2021, there are some key elements you’ll want to include in your big day. Of course, the sooner you can get these details organised, bought, or booked, the less stressful it will be as you lead up to the big day.
To help you with your planning, here’s a look at some of the key things you’ll want to include in your stunning Jewish wedding.
Opt for a Live Band for the Ultimate Touch of Elegance
It’s likely that you’ve attended your fair share of weddings as a guest where the musical entertainment was provided by a DJ. And while DJs certainly serve a purpose and can be lots of fun, if you’re looking to create an elegant Jewish wedding vibe, then a live band is ideal. However, you don’t want to just go with any old band, as a Jewish wedding band will be well-versed in the type of music that you and your guests want to hear. In terms of finding the ultimate Jewish wedding band for hire, you can look into this Jewish wedding band, Jam Hot, as a great option. Jam Hot has plenty of experience working within the Jewish community, so when it comes to delivering high-quality music, they've got it covered. From up-tempo energetic medleys to those romantic slow songs, you can have it all!
A Personalised Chuppah
Of course, the centrepiece of the Jewish wedding ceremony is the chuppah, which is why couples spend so much time and money planning for the perfect one. Rather than just going with a standard chuppah, why not personalise yours and have it in keeping with your own couple style? You can add elements that complement your wedding colours, decor, flowers, and greenery that is special to you, and more. Really, the chuppah ideas are endless, as you can get as creative and unique as you want with the chuppah. Just be sure to think about how it will look in photos, as it will play a large role in the overall look and feel of the day.
Don't Be Afraid to Tailor the Traditions
Today's couples have become much more progressive where wedding planning is concerned and may not necessarily love the idea of a traditional Jewish wedding. Instead, you can look at the various Jewish wedding traditions, do some research, and pick those that reflect the two of you and even add your own twists if you like. There is no reason why you have to include every single tradition if that's not the day you had envisioned. Remember, your wedding is for you and your significant other, no-one else. That means you need to make the decisions that are meaningful to the two of you, and feel right to you. That may require you to put your foot down if parents or grandparents see things differently, but it is ultimately your day.
Whichever Jewish traditions you choose to include in your day, you can let your Jew-ish and non Jewish guests know the meaning and sentiment behind them by including them in Wedition - a personalised wedding magazine which you give to your guests on the day of your wedding. A truly remarkable way to make sure your guests learn about all the wonderful details that you have planned into your day.
