For my wedding, I wanted to create a pamphlet for the guests to use to familiarize themselves with the ceremony. We had many non-religious and non-Jewish guests, and it was important to my wife and I that they be able to follow the ceremony and understand the underlying symbolism.
It was especially important to me that the transitions between the events be clearly laid out – something that I found was lacking in some of the pamphlets I’ve read. It’s all well and good that the chuppah symbolizes one thing and the yichud room symbolizes something else, but if you don’t tell people that the room will go crazy when the groom steps on the glass and the crowd will dance the couple from the chuppah to the yichud room, the uninitiated guests in the crowd may be very surprised!
Below are images of the wedding pamphlet we used, and also a downloadable Adobe Photoshop file which can be customized. If this is outside of your wheelhouse, feel free to contact me via the “Send a Message” form at the bottom of the site, and I’ll be happy to do it for you.
Rules for using the pamphlet:
Note: I highlighted all of the areas of the inside document that you’ll want to change from my information to yours. For the outside, you’ll want to change the entire thing!
