Let’s face it, ordering a batch of kippot / yarmulkes / cupples for your guests is an absolute must for any Jewish wedding. While it’s totally fine to leave them blank, it can also be a lovely ‘kipp-sake’ (sorry) for your guests to provide a fun slogan, perhaps even with your wedding date and names embroidered or printed into the kippah.
In other words, you can ‘cupple’ them (aaargh!) with something personal and make them your wedding favors.
Do have a look at our cool kippot Pinterest board with some of our favorite kippah designs, and make sure you check out our fabulous Recommended Vendor, Hebrewear (wedding kippah specialists) who can create any kippah idea you have in mind! In the meantime, here are our 12 fun phrases for the inside of your kippot.
1. Your names and wedding date
It’s simple, it’s effective, and people will always remember your big day when they wear their kippah.
2. Your favourite line from your vows or ketubah
If you have a particularly poignant line or phrase from your wedding vows or ketubah, why not have it in your kippot?
3. Please G-d by you
Save your elderly relatives a bit of work, and let your kippot do the talking.
4. Fun facts about the couple
To make it even more fun for your guests, perhaps include a few little facts about the two of you. You could have a few different designs printed, making your kippot collectors items!
5. He’s a kippah / she’s a kippah
OK, it doesn’t quite scan both ways, but as far as cute puns go, we’re pretty proud of it.
6. “We went to (name) and (name)’s wedding and all we got was this lousy kippah”
You’ve seen it on a t-shirt, why not print it on a kippah?!
7. Smashed it!
Short, sweet and to the point.
8. You can leave your kippah on
Channel Tom Jones for a Jewish wedding.
9. Jew ‘fro topper
A perfect slogan for curly haired couples!
10. Schtick on your head
It literally is some classic Jewish schtick – on your head.
11. Yarmulking me blush
Perfect for a blush pink color scheme.
12. Kippah it kosher
Great advice for a Jewish wedding!
