    I need your suggestions. Mark is Jewish and I'm Catholic, we're doing our legal ceremony at home and our symbolic in Cabo on the beach by a minister. We are trying to incorporate both faiths, we're signing a Ketubah before the ceremony and so far I think we're doing the following:

    Opening Remarks
    Explanation of the Ketubah
    Acknowledging Loved ones who have died
    General marriage blessings and prayers
    Remarks by the officiant
    Affirmation of the families and of the guests
    Exchange of vows
    Exchange of rings
    Lighting the unity candle
    Closing readings
    Breaking of the glass
    Kiss

    Any suggestions, opinions?

    Thank you for your help

      Your ceremony lineup looks great - what specific advice were you looking for? There are lots of other beautiful and symbolic components from the Jewish faith, but it is just a matter of how much you wanted to incorporate.

      As long as you are working closely with your officiant to create just the right blend of your backgrounds, you will love your ceremony. That is the most important thing.

      Also - I highly recommend that your officiant explain anything and everything that pertains to a religious tradition or ritual, so everyone feels included.

      Hope that helps,
      Debbi

        Hi Debbi,

        Here is a helpful tip for you when replying to threads - always check the date the thread was started and when the last post was - if you look up at Sandra's info - you will see that she posted this in February 2008 and her wedding (already happened) was in March 2008.

        Thanks,
        Alyssa
