Let Plywerk play a part in your upcoming wedding. Assuming the role of flower girl has already been delegated to some child, we’re happy to fulfill another duty. We have a lot of experience printing and mounting wedding photos, but we can do more! Intrigued yet? Well, if you’re looking at modern ketubah designs and frames, we can help you out. (And we may still be available if you need a flower girl understudy.)
As our Jewish friends probably know, the ketubah is an important part of a traditional wedding ceremony. It’s a written contract between husband and wife. Usually, it is signed by witnesses and read aloud under the chuppah. Historically, the ketubah provided women with legal status and rights in the marriage, but today, it’s more than just a legal document. Like reciting wedding vows, a ketubah defines the terms of a marriage and the promise of love, friendship, and partnership.
But unlike wedding vows, you can hang a ketubah on your wall. Throughout your marriage, the ketubah will hang in your home as a daily reminder of the promises you made on your wedding day. Often painted and written in calligraphy, a ketubah is meant to be seen.
While the ketubah has its roots in the Jewish wedding custom, it’s something that is becoming more common among couples from all different religions and cultures. Jewish, interfaith, and even non-religious couples are embracing the tradition.
A ketubah is not just a piece of paper. Like a ring, it’s a tangible reminder of your commitment. Fortunately, no one will talk you into getting a diamond encrusted ketubah. It’s up to you what it will say and how it will look. But if you’re going to put it on a wall, a Plywerk panel is the perfect way to mount and hang your ketubah.
