mean different things to different people. Therefore, there

have a wedding. For example, there are many kinds of theme
weddings that both the bride and groom can create in order

would be a Jewish wedding.
Jewish weddings are both beautiful and elegant. Jewish weddings
usually take place on Saturday after sunset due to the observance
of the Sabbath. Or, they take place on Sunday starting at
about five o’clock in the afternoon most likely in order
not to compete with Sunday morning and Sunday afternoon church
services and picnics. No matter what day weddings take place
or what the wedding theme is the most popular times of year
to have weddings is in the spring and summer because spring
and summer are the seasons in which the weather is warmer.

because the weather in California is almost always warm. It
is claimed that the average temperature in California is seventy
degrees. However it isn’t advisable to have a wedding
in December, especially in Illinois because there is much
snow in Illinois in December. But, the date and time of the
wedding is up to the couple of course.

itself. They have many blessings. For example, the couple
stands under a canopy called a hupa and the couple is blessed
under it. The hupa symbolizes the couple’s new home.

the couple drinks wine together from a cup in order that they
will have a sweet life together. Also, there is usually a
glass broken at Jewish wedding. The glass is broken by the
groom by stepping on it when it is covered with a cloth or
a towel. 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.

or beef. There is no pork served at Jewish weddings because
