Mazel tov, you’re getting married!
There are so many things to prepare, so many people to invite, so many traditions to uphold. But really, your main goal is to make sure that the day is gloriously meaningful for you and your spouse-to-be; plus, everybody should have a fantastic time during the wedding reception because that’s really the aspect of the occasion where all the fun ensues.
The Perfect Jewish Wedding…
The perfect Jewish wedding reception must have a great balance between good food and music. So find yourself a superb caterer to prepare a kosher style menu (especially if you will be having non-Jewish folks at your wedding as well, who may have a different take on the traditional “no lobster, shrimp, and pork” fare). You can bet that delicious Jewish fare will play a huge part in making the joy of the day complete; plus, it’s consistently a treat to surprise people with how yummy Jewish food can be, especially when paired with abundant bottles of Manischwevitz.
Traditional Israeli Dancing…
Another aspect of the reception that you need to cover is the entertainment, which always needs to observe strong Jewish traditions rooted in music and dance (otherwise, it’s really just going to be a typical wedding). For this, only Jewish wedding band hire will be fit for this purpose. These bands are quite familiar with the different traditional elements of entertainment in Jewish weddings, such as the Hora dance (or chair dance) wherein strong and brave guests will hoist you and your groom above the crowd, and family and guests dance like King David in a circle as the anthemic “Hava Nagila” is played. This is then followed by the Mitzvah dances and concluded by the Mezinke Tanz or Krenzel. You can trust your hired professional band to know the proper transition and play the expected line-up of songs to adhere to the traditional ways of a Jewish wedding reception.
The Most Memorable Party…
Now, if you’re not an Orthodox Jew and you wish to integrate some popular or favourite secular songs in the mix, most Jewish wedding bands for hire also have an extensive repertoire for that to encourage more dancing from all of your guests — and perhaps, a couple of songs from talented family members who want to dedicate some romantic tunes to you and your new spouse.
With the right band playing at your wedding reception, you don’t have to worry about music shortage. A Jewish band is ready to provide its services and assure you of a memorable, meaningful celebration of your Hamesh-blessed union.
