Weddings are a celebration and all around the globe, weddings are celebrated differently. While we are all familiar with the proceedings of weddings in the west and in the east, a lesser known area when it comes to weddings and general cultural awareness is Israel. Even though Israelis hold tradition in very high regard, there are now many more that are willing to step out of the traditional norms and instead are opting for a more contemporary approach that is both refreshing and fun.
The latest trends in the world of Israeli weddings are the best of both worlds. They bring with them a sense of cultural responsibility giving every wedding the true taste of tradition as well as a hint of contemporary modernism that adds a stimulating spiciness to the regular old norms. Following are Israel’s latest wedding trends.
Gone are the days of having your wedding celebration in proper venues. Whilst the traditional ceremony often takes place in the synagogue, the modern day celebration is held in random locations such as the streets, a furniture store, etc. The more random the location, the more fun and unpredictable it will be. A particularly famous street is one in Florentine, in the south of Tel Aviv; one adorned with colorful and compelling street art, where under a hand crafted Chuppah, the bride and groom with recite their vows: the ultimate hipster wedding. Kastiel, a furniture store based in south Tel Aviv is another famous location to have your wedding. Stylish and gorgeous, this furniture store gives you full freedom to have your wedding the way you want to.
In true Israeli tradition, at weddings no one really dresses up. Their concept behind not dressing up is that it comes in the way of celebration so they skip it altogether. At many weddings you will witness people in the ceremony dressed up in regular everyday clothes because they are only there to have a good time so they don’t feel the need to dress up.
