February LOVE Wedding Inspiration: A Ketubah for Your Wedding Day

I am always on the look out for unique and romantic ideas for weddings. I came across the Modernketubah.com  website and feel in LOVE with the concept of using a ketubah for your wedding day. If you would like one for your wedding day check out Modernketubah.com or add it to your DIY wedding day projects!

What is a ketubah?
(pronounced "keh-TOO-buh")  in Hebrew it means "document" or "it is written".A ketubah is a work of art that uses images and words to express the love and commitment of your marriage vows.

 A ketubah  is a unique way to publicly declare your commitment and love in addition to the ceremony. At the reception instead of a guest book, have guest sign your wedding day ketubah! You can frame and display it in your home as a constant reminder of all who shared your special day.

The picture can be of  flowers, such as the ones displayed here. Or some other options are engagement photos, your wedding rings, wedding bouquet or anything else symbolic about your wedding day.

 Some ideas for words to use on your wedding day ketubah can be your personally written wedding vows, a favorite poem, a favorite scripture or song.

Now let the wedding planning FUN begin!
It is time to go buy every bridal magazine on the newsstand and search all the wedding site for fabulous ideas.
BUT, before you make a deposit or buy that fabulous dress, set up a romantic planning date and sit with your FH or FW (future husband or future wife) and ask yourselves these few questions. The answers can provide insight on what you both want for your wedding day.
How much do we want to spend on our wedding?
What three words describe the look and feel of our wedding day?
What is the most important to us on the wedding day?
Will the wedding and reception be indoor? outdoor? or both? 
Will  our wedding day be traditional or non traditional?
Will the wedding day include family, cultural, or religious ceremonies?
Will the wedding be held in the summer, winter, fall, spring?
Will it be intimate affair or large soiree?
Do we want to have a local wedding, destination wedding or weekend wedding?
What are the wedding colors?
Will it be formal? (after five) or informal? (business casual)
Will the wedding day have a theme?
