One of the most important elements in a modern Hebrew wedding is the Jewish breaking glass. As tradition dictates, the breaking of the glass is one of the most beautiful aspects of the ceremony and is saved as part of a wedding gift in a keepsake or memento from someone else (like the parents). The breaking of the glass is to signify that as long as the pieces are broken, the marriage never will be. It is a “rite of passage” to declare the end of one era and the beginning of another, as the joining of the bride and groom and their families become one.
The possibility of contributing to the aesthetic of the wedding is why the decision of the glass shape texture and colour is such an important thing when it comes to putting together a wedding and deciding which glass to buy, since like any good wedding the Jewish wedding is a visual representation of a very important and grand moment in the lives of two people.
