Vus machs da, modern Jewish brides?
Okay, that was a bit of a fail on my part, though no, I’m not technically a shiksa. My parents are Jewish, and though I consider myself an athiest, the Yiddish never really leaves does it? I’ll consider it “street cred” for this post.
I was clicking through a bunch of wedding-related links and came upon New Ketubah. For those of you who are not familiar with the tradition, the ketubah is a written statement of commitment to each other and to the couple’s faith. More traditional ketubahs can also outline the terms of the marriage in the same way a prenuptial agreement does. The ones I found through the New Ketubah are awesome! Since the ketubah is used as a decorative piece after the wedding, they’ll fit in perfectly in any contemporary home. My favorite is “Beloveds” (detail above).

Oh my goodness, thank you thank you thank you for finding this! I’ve been depressed over seeing all of the very (in my opinion) horrendous ketubahs out there.
