I have been invited to a chasuna a few days after Lag Baomer. Are Chasunas permitted between Lag Baomer and the 3 days before Shavouos?
Is there a mekor not to have one at this point in Sefira?

i know of a chasuna that happened yesturday. you are allowed as long as youve counted 33 days which is lag baomer!April 28, 2014 10:35 pm at 10:35 pm #1012648GG yekkeMember
if you keep 1st half (2nd night pesach – lag baomer) then you should be allowed
Although in london most people keep 1st half, there is never weddings during the second half (and there are lots of chasunas during 1st half). My uncle says that this is proof that the minhag hamokom of london is 2nd half (which i think most yekkes do)April 28, 2014 10:37 pm at 10:37 pm #1012649Sam2Participant
There are different Minhagim. The prevalent custom is to respect others’ Minhagim, meaning to attend another person’s wedding who has a different Minhag than you (but not to shave for it).

You are certainly allowed to attend.April 29, 2014 7:58 pm at 7:58 pm #1012651
I was told that R. Dovid Feinstein does not approve of this.April 29, 2014 8:42 pm at 8:42 pm #1012652👑RebYidd23Participant

I asked the shailah and was told you are allowed to attend EVEN IF YOU HOLD by a different minhag.April 30, 2014 4:42 pm at 4:42 pm #1012654WolfishMusingsParticipant
I was told that R. Dovid Feinstein does not approve of this.
I’m confused. If you know the answer, why are you asking the question?

A public service announcement perhaps?April 30, 2014 6:22 pm at 6:22 pm #1012656
I asked the question, Mr. The Wolf, since there are people who do make weddings, and wanted to know the mekor, if there is one, or is this just a minhag?April 30, 2014 7:04 pm at 7:04 pm #1012657bp27Participant
There is a mekor, and the accepted minhag has always been not to make weddings after Lag B’Omer regardless of which “half” of sefirah one holds of. The Taz brings this down, and says the reason is because of the Crusades that happened this time of year.April 30, 2014 7:44 pm at 7:44 pm #1012658WolfishMusingsParticipant

Fair enough, but then again, I suppose you could have put your other statement in the OP.
In any event, there’s no need to call me “Mr. The Wolf.” I was never very formal. “Wolf,” “Hey, you,” and “Knucklehead” are all acceptable. 🙂

How about “off the wolf”? 🙂
