5 Reasons to Have a Custom Ketubah for Your Wedding

When you are planning a Jewish wedding, there are a lot of traditions and details to go over.

You try to ensure that every detail is something special to you and your fiancé.

A custom Ketubah includes having your names and information printed, including personalized text. You can ensure this important document is something unique and meaningful to you.

Here are the main reasons why you should have a custom Ketubah created for your wedding. 

1. Beautifully Cohesive Elements

The Ketubah is the center-piece of any Jewish wedding. Once it gets presented to the bride, you will most likely be displaying the Ketubah at the reception.

If you choose to get a custom Ketubah, you can choose the colors and the design of the document tying it in nicely with all of your decors. You can base wedding decor off of your Ketubah colors and design elements.

Some couples even have a signing ceremony. The signing ceremony allows friends and family to sign the Ketubah as witnesses to the union.

No matter where you display your Ketubah, you can have a cohesive look throughout your wedding day that brings all the details together.

2. Something Unique and Special to You and Your Fiancé

The big day is ultimately a celebration of love and commitment between you and your fiancé. When you create a custom Ketubah, you are creating something unique and special to your relationship.

Some things that make the Ketubah special to you and your fiancé are things like,

  • Incorporating your favorite artist into the design
  • Adding your wedding date and names to the artistic part of the design
  • Creating a wedding logo from the design

By designing a Ketubah that has some of these details, you can find even more meaning in your special day.

Talk with your loved one and decide on your preferences. Talk about what is most important to you. There is a lot to consider when figuring out how to choose a Ketubah design.

3. A Timeless Heirloom for Your New Family

This is not only a document that is part of the wedding, the Ketubah is also the first art heirloom that you will be passing down for generations.

The Ketubah is often displayed as artwork in your house and is used as a constant reminder of your special bond and your wedding day.

Typically it gets hung in the living room or dining room. However, there are many ways to hang the Ketubah after your wedding that can make your custom piece the heart of your home.

When you choose to get a custom Ketubah, you will be sure that the quality of the paper and all the materials used to create your custom piece will stand the test of time and last as long as your love does.

4. Details Customizable to You

The Ketubah is a Jewish marriage contract that has been a part of the faith for thousands of years. It outlines the details of the marriage such as,

  • Date of the wedding
  • Names of the fathers of both the bride and groom
  • Location of the wedding
  • Financial information and arrangements made

So basically, this is the most important document that you will sign as a couple.

Did you know that if you get a pre-printer Ketubah that it has a pre-determined amount of space to fill in the details?

If you misprint a word or run out of room you will have to go get an entirely new document. There is no room for error.

With custom Ketubah, you will not have to worry about any of that. The text comes predetermined and you can add all the details you want. It will be in the text you love with words that hold meaning.

No filling in the blanks or reprinting. Your wedding should be filled with all of your preferences.

5. Uphold Your Faith and Tradition With a Modern Twist

The tradition of the Ketubah has been around since B.C.E. But a lot of couples have found that you can make this tradition more meaningful and modern by choosing their own Ketubah design.

If you want to make sure that everything you are customizing on your Ketubah upholds tradition you can always talk to your rabbi.

Typically the rabbi needs to go over the text and what text gets written in the Ketubah. Some even have specified text or text style. But from there, the design can be embellished and created specifically for you.

Getting a customizable Ketubah just offers you even more freedom and room to add other words the rabbi and family members believe are special to you and your fiancé.

This is the best way to incorporate your faith and tradition into something modern and special to you.
