No two weddings are alike, and no two Jewish weddings are alike either! While most people think of chuppahs and the breaking of the glass as the important Jewish wedding customs, these things aren't actually even required. There are only three things that are required to make a Jewish wedding, well...Jewish. First, the bride must accept something of value from the groom. (Value being worth more than a few cents, nowadays it is most often a ring.) Second, the groom must recite a phrase in Hebrew which basically says he is taking the bride as his wife and third, both of those two things must be witnessed. That is it! Pretty simple, eh?

It's your wedding, do it the way you want!
