As modern Jewish couples increasingly seek to infuse their weddings with meaning, many are looking to a ketubah, or a Jewish wedding contract, to formalize vows and celebrate their commitments. Beginning in the 1st century BCE, official ketubot have the binding force of Jewish law and were originally intended to provide rights to women inside their marriages. No longer just for those of the Jewish faith, today’s ketubot may be completely customized to reflect the individual nuances of each relationship.

Though traditional ketubot contain official text, modern adaptations often include updated versions of couples’ vows reframed as promises to be kept over time—and many couples choose to retain the well-known phrase, “I am my beloved’s and my beloved is mine.” Couples can turn to ketubah artists to incorporate their contracts into permanent pieces of art to be displayed in the family home. Modern ketubot can even be customized to match a wedding paper suite or reflect the tone of a venue, memorializing your special day for years to come.

Check out these 13 beautiful, intricate ketubah designs that can be purchased for your wedding.
