Time & Place for a Jewish Wedding
Jewish weddings may be held anywhere, but not at any time.
Location up to Bride and Groom
Weddings may take place anywhere, but it has been customary to hold them in certain locations. They were sometimes held in the home of the groom or the bride. In fact, in ancient times, "the groom's father built special quarters in the family for the married couple" (The Jewish Way in Love & Marriage, Maurice Lamm, p. 183). They are also often held in the synagogue grounds, or in a courtyard.
