Ten Things To Consider

1

Your wedding is, first and foremost, about both of you: your feelings, your individual levels of religion/spirituality, and what you want to say to each other on your special day.

2

Do you wish to have one officiant for your ceremony or two, one representing each of your faiths?

(i.e. a Rabbi and Priest, or an Interfaith Minister, Imam, Pundit etc.)

3

What do you want your ceremony to say: to your family, to your guests and to each other?

4

Do you wish to add cultural wedding customs or traditions to the ceremony? Ask your mothers or grandmothers for ideas. 

5

Understand that even when you ask others for guidance and advice, the ultimate decision is YOURS.

6

Speak up, ask questions of each other, of us as clergy and of all those involved in your special day.

7

Are you planning to have children? How would you bring them up? In which religion, or both (if this is an Interfaith marriage)?

8

Little known fact: Interfaith couples pay more attention to how things will be done in planning their lives together, and how each religion will be honored, than couples who share the same beliefs. 

9

Your wedding day should be the most fun you have together as a couple! (up to that moment!!)

10

REMEMBER- never instead of, always in addition to.
