The broken glass symbolizes that marriage is very fragile and that the marriage will last until all the tiny pieces of glass are put together. Putting the glass is impossible to put back together therefore the couple’s marriage will last forever.

In addition, a wedding with a Jewish theme will be highlighted with plenty of food, drink, dancing, and all around celebration.
