Gary Rosenthal Groom’s Breaking Glass for Jewish Wedding Ceremonies

What is said before it gets broken ?? There are 2 Jewish people , and only the groom breaks the glass ,,,is that correct and what prayer is said?

REPLY FROM RABBI ANDREA FRANK
The breaking glass was always stepped on by the Groom. Its symbolism is to never forget the destruction of the Temples in Israel. Its also has the symbolism for the wedding couple being married Under the Chuppah, the wedding canopy. That the couple’s marriage, commitment to each other is much stronger, and difficult to break, than the pieces of the glass.

Mazel Tov!

Note: The couple is responsible to purchase the Breaking Glass product that the Jewish Artists designed in colors to match wedding colors for all Jewish Wedding Ceremoies. Not sure where to shop or purchase in MO? –
