Personalizing Ketubah Texts
Although there are many options as to how your text can be completed, the way you list information on your order form is EXACTLY how it will appear in your ketubah.
For example, if you list your first name as a nickname (such as "Larry" instead of "Lawrence"), that is what we will print. We strongly suggest using proper names.
We will, of course, furnish you with a proof of your text for final approval before we print your ketubah.
There are many small variations.
1. Middle Names: The decision of whether or not to use either of your middle names is yours.
2. Parents' Names: With regard to your parents' names, you may choose not to use them at all. If you wish to name your parents, please provide only their first names. This eliminates confusion when parents are divorced, the mother is using her maiden name as her middle name, etc. It also makes the texts flow more nicely.
3. Also, if you are using parents' names, please note that the proper order is mother's name before father's name.
We also ask for information regarding the date of your wedding ceremony so we can include this information in the ketubah text.
