Food is expensive… Heck… A wedding is expensive!

I know I am not telling anyone anything new here but… man! We just started talking to caterers and florists… and wow! Things can really add up. Dan and I are both pretty money conscious so it hit us hard when we saw the first catering proposal. Wow.

Here’s the thing… normal weddings are expensive… our wedding will be even more so because it has to be kosher. Thus, we have to pay for a person to be onsite the whole time to supervise the kashrut and we have to pay for special dishes and silverware… Kosher meat is 2 to 3 times as expensive as non-kosher meat… oy! What we do for our beliefs… but that’s the point, right?

I (Talia) believe that kashrut, keeping kosher, and a lot of Jewish halacha (law) is about being mindful. I can’t just eat in any restaurant or any place. I have to be mindful.

So … Judaism is keeping us mindful at our wedding too. πŸ™‚ Unfortunately, it’s not all good mindfulness. We had to cut down our guest list for the final time the other night… oy… that was hard. There are definitely people that I would love to come to the wedding but I just don’t have the space. I hope everyone understands… making my wedding guest list was one of the hardest things I have ever had to do in my life!

We are sending out save-the-dates soon and many of you have been contacted by us with the password to the wedding details section.

Anyway, wedding is trucking along!
