At a recent wedding I attended, the mothers of the bride accidentally broke the dish after the signing of the te'na'im but before it was read out publicly. It seems like the regular procedure is to break the dish after the reading of the te'na'im so there was a tumult and a new dish was brought to break again after the te'na'im were read.

Is there really a difference if it is broken before the signing of the te'na'im, after the signing or after the reading of the te'na'im? If so does it have anything to do with the reasons for this practice?

    I edited out the duplicate portion and added an explicit link to the other question. I also altered the title to match the question.

    the breaking is not a Kinyan, so what are you asking, it is not clear for me.
