Jewish Weddings Checklist

You’ve said “Yes”, so what happens now? Time to plan the day you’ve been dreaming about forever! Here are our tips to make sure you remember everything for your Jewish Wedding:

1) It is very common to announce your engagement in the Jewish Press or in a local newspaper. Not only does this tell the community about your wonderful news, but is also a great keepsake.

2) It’s time to think numbers! Speak to the family and get an idea of guest numbers you would like to invite. This is always a challenge – be warned!

3) What sort of ceremony have you always dreamed of? Decide if you wish to marry in Synagogue or at the party venue.

4) Start looking at wedding venues. Check out our article Choosing a Jewish Wedding Venue for great advice.

5) Food is always a big part of a Jewish Wedding and is one of the most expensive aspects! Kosher or Non-offensive Catering is a decision that needs to be made and can affect the cost of your venue.

6) The next thing to consider is what sort of Band you would like. You want great music at your simcha and you want everyone dancing! It is very common to have live music and bands do get booked up quickly. Click here to see some fabulous Jewish Wedding Bands.

7) The Jewish Wedding Photographer and Videographer have the hardest job of them all. Wedding moments cannot be re-run. A good Jewish Wedding Photographer and Jewish Wedding Videographer are worth the money. Remember that wedding pictures and videos will be your ever lasting memory from your big day.

8) There is so much choice for entertaining your guests these days and adding some additional entertainment can help make your wedding stand out from the rest. From Classical singers to Photobooths, some more ideas can be found here.

9) An Invitation is the first thing your guests will receive regarding your Jewish Wedding so you want to create a beautiful design as well as providing the necessary functional details. Think about your venue – is it easy to find/park? You may want to include directions. In addition, it is common to have a gift list and you need to remember to include this information as well. Finally, wedding invitations can be heavy – it is worth double checking to make sure you put the correct postage on!

10) It’s time to let your imagination run wild and create the Jewish Wedding you have always dreamed of. So where do you start with creating the wow factor when you and your guests enter your Jewish Wedding Venue? Flowers, table centres, lighting, ribbons, candles, themes – the list is endless.

11) Insurance is there to cover the unexpected. Whether that is extreme weather conditions, wedding vendor’s failure to supply or even theft, loss and/or damage to wedding attire. Insurance is the final piece in the puzzle to ensure all boxes are ticked when planning your Jewish Wedding.

All that is left to say is a hearty Mazel tov and enjoy the preparations!
