I startedÂ Smashing The Glass back in May 2013 because I wanted to create the blog I wish I’d had access to when I was planning my own Jewish wedding. When I was planning my big day, I felt that there was a total lackÂ of Jewish wedding inspiration that wasn’tÂ ‘old fashioned schmaltz’. And when it came to planning an individualÂ and personalÂ Jewish wedding ceremony,Â this was particularly relevant.
One of the most popular pages on the blog is my constantly updated chuppah ideas page with literally hundreds of cool, creative ideas for you to peruse through and be inspired by. Today I’ve gone a step further and picked outÂ an edit of some of the most gorgeous productsÂ forÂ under the chuppahÂ in my quest to help you infuseÂ your Jewish wedding ceremony with beauty, individualityÂ and creativity. At the end of the post there are also several links to help you source some really fabulousÂ music for your Jewish (or Jew-ish!) wedding ceremonyÂ too.
Hope you’re inspired. Happy Friday!
1.Â Smash Pouch (coming soon)
I namedÂ the blogÂ Smashing The GlassÂ because I absolutelyÂ adore the celebratory Jewish wedding tradition of theÂ breaking the glass at the end of the ceremony so I just hadÂ to create this personalised bag to house the glass. And guess what?! I will very shortly be selling these personalised ‘smash pouches’ for you to breakÂ your glass in style, and have a beautiful keepsakeÂ from your ceremony! Sign up here to be the first to know when they go on sale.
