Jewish Wedding Break the Glass
Jewish weddings always include breaking a glass at the end of the ceremony. Traditionally, the man alone broke the glass though today, some couples break two glasses. The glass-breaking is typically followed by a communal "Mazel tov!", which is the equivalent of "Congratulations!"
It reminds us that love, like glass, is fragile and must be protected. The glass is broken to protect the marriage with an implied prayer: "May your marriage last as long as it would take to repair this glass." The shattering of the glass concludes the ceremony on a high note.
OUR WEDDING GLASSES ARE HAND BLOWN AND THOUGH COLORS MAY BE THE SAME NO TWO ARE IDENTICAL. YOUR GLASS ARRIVES TO YOU SECURELY WRAPPED IN A CLOTH AND IN A WHITE SATIN BAG. IVORY SATIN BAGS ARE AVAILABLE ON REQUEST.
