A friend asked us to post the following:
She and her husband are making their first wedding for their son and they have no family support on their side.
The boy is marrying an FFB girl.
From a BT point of view, how have others handled the gashmius factor in frum weddings?
How have people cut costs?
What was “indispensible” (besides the obvious halachic requirements) and what wasn’t?
Are their any issues specific to BT/FFB chasuna?
Were there any surprises that arose due to not having been brought up attending frum chasunas?
Thanks in advance for your help.
