I started 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 lack of Jewish wedding inspiration that wasn’t ‘old fashioned schmaltz’. And when it came to planning an individual and personal Jewish wedding ceremony, 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 out an edit of some of the most gorgeous products for under the chuppah in my quest to help you infuse your Jewish wedding ceremony with beauty, individuality and creativity. At the end of the post there are also several links to help you source some really fabulous music for your Jewish (or Jew-ish!) wedding ceremony too.
Hope you’re inspired. Happy Friday!
1. Smash Pouch (coming soon)
I named the blog Smashing The Glass because I absolutely adore the celebratory Jewish wedding tradition of the breaking the glass at the end of the ceremony so I just had 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 break your glass in style, and have a beautiful keepsake from your ceremony! Sign up here to be the first to know when they go on sale.
2. Beloved Ceramic Wedding Kiddush Cup £40
I love the clean lines of this kiddush cup designed by Jennifer Raichman and the beautifully calligraphed Hebrew and English typography
