Kosher Wedding- 3 Cost Effective Options

You found your dream wedding venue. You can picture yourself saying your vows in this perfect setting. It has everything you always dreamed about, till you talk to your parents and they request that you have a kosher wedding reception.  Oh no! Now what?
A lot of venues either have an alliance with a Kosher Caterer or they will allow you to bring in an outside kosher caterer of your choice and you then pay a rental fee for the use of the venue.  If you go this route you may find yourself doubling your costs.
However, if your heart is set on this perfect, one of a kind dream venue but your pocket book is shy the extra money it may cost for kosher food consider exploring these options:
Offer a Kosher style wedding and if serving meat make sure you serve enough vegetarian and/or fish options.
Create a vegetarian/pescetarian menu.  Make sure you do not include non-kosher fish items such as shrimp, lobster and swordfish.  Or serve a breakfast for dinner.  In addition to it being a novel idea everyone loves breakfast foods.
Order Kosher meals to be delivered for your guests with dietary restrictions.

5 Tips to Avoid Wedding Day Disaster

With the proper pre-planning you should be able to avoid some wedding day disasters that could easily turn your perfect wedding and you into an emotional mess.
1. A good time line will help keep your guests present, excited and engaged in your big day.
2. An accurate, alphabetical, list of attendees with their seat assignment will help to avoid major chaos when one of your guests shows up to your reception with an uninvited partner.
3. Finalize with all your vendors the week before your wedding.  Make sure to touch base via phone, at least once during this time. Do not assume that because you sent an email they received it. If you do decide to do your confirmations by email ask for a confirmation receipt from each vendor.  Make doubly certain that each of your vendors has the right date, event start time and location.
4. If you have a complicated bustle on your Wedding dress designate a reliable person to be responsible for bustling your dress after your service.  Prior to the wedding day have that person practice doing this a few times so you know how much time you need to get it done. 
5. You must walk in the shoes that you plan to wear at your ceremony and reception prior to the big day.  You want to ensure that the soles are really scuffed – flower petals and carpets can become a sliding pond for new shoes.
Here is an extra one for good luck- In the Jewish faith traditionally the groom breaks a glass wrapped in a napkin to symbolize the destruction of the Temple.  Make sure to use a light bulb and not a real wine glass, because with an actual wine glass you run the risk of the glass puncturing through his shoe ending up embedded in his foot. OUCH!
