ever hear of this inyan? when i was in E”Y, i was at a teachers house, and a few of my friends and myself noticed a gorgeous black and gold plaque with hers and her husbands wedding engraved into it. we thought it was a gift and asked who gave it, or where they got it, or something, and she told us there is an inyan of a chosson inviting his kallah to their own wedding, so that’s the way he did it. i never heard of such a thing before. can anyone enlighten me?July 5, 2011 3:18 am at 3:18 am #1030249maynishMember
you want her to show up, dont u!!!!??? so u better personally invite her. and give her whatever pleases her that she comes. lolJuly 5, 2011 3:19 am at 3:19 am #1030250Pac-ManMember
The Choson is acquiring the Kallah and wants to make sure she shows up happily.July 5, 2011 3:35 am at 3:35 am #1030251TheGoqParticipant
she should invite him her parents are paying the lions shareJuly 5, 2011 4:28 am at 4:28 am #1030252☕ DaasYochid ☕Participant
He is not literally being “koneh” her – he is making a kinyan in her. If she needs an invitation to show up to her own wedding, I don’t know if things are starting off on the right foot.
I have not heard of this before.July 5, 2011 11:38 am at 11:38 am #1030253Ctrl Alt DelParticipant
What a waste of money.July 5, 2011 1:08 pm at 1:08 pm #1030254QueenParticipant
Not everything has to be made into an “inyan”

I hope he wants me to come…..but I dont think I need to invite him! After all, I’m paying for the meal so maybe I should invite him(or have my parents invite him to be more accurate.)July 5, 2011 4:40 pm at 4:40 pm #1030256RedNails19Participant
this is very interesing (and weird) to me…. inviting his Kallah?!! (sigh) who eva hoyd of somthing as funny as this, i tell you…oy…lolJuly 5, 2011 6:48 pm at 6:48 pm #1030257golden momMember
Its more of a chassidish thing I think I got one too its usally sent for shabbos kallah w flowersJuly 5, 2011 7:57 pm at 7:57 pm #1030258WolfishMusingsParticipant
It sounds strange to me too, but hey… as long as you’re not going to insist that I have to do it too, go ahead. It doesn’t bother me if you insist on inviting your kallah to your wedding.

The inyan does make sense, however in this day in age I must concur with adorable and the goq- technically since the kalla paying for majority she should be the one to do the inviting.
But women, complain, I wouldn’t mind something like that:)July 5, 2011 8:37 pm at 8:37 pm #1030260cherrybimParticipant
Things have gotten too shticky.
Was there also an engraved return card; or was she only invited to the chuppa?July 5, 2011 11:11 pm at 11:11 pm #1030261deiyezoogerMember
It has noting to do with any minhag, its about the engraving store makung money, When my parents got married 43 years ago it was very “in”.July 5, 2011 11:45 pm at 11:45 pm #1030262commonsenseParticipant
I don’t know about any inyan, but when I got married, back in the dark ages, many of us sent our chossonim and kallah’s invites.July 5, 2011 11:49 pm at 11:49 pm #1030263oomisParticipant
I file this under the category of tasking the broken glass bits and making them into a mezuzah case for the new couple. It’s not assur, so who cares what they do, if it makes them happy?July 6, 2011 12:42 am at 12:42 am #1030264deiyezoogerMember
I dont care if people do it, its actualy a nice home decoration, but I have a problem with people making it an “inyan”.July 6, 2011 7:34 pm at 7:34 pm #1030265adorableParticipant
were some of these posts deleted? like mine for example!?!??!July 6, 2011 8:24 pm at 8:24 pm #1030266me tooMember
Off topic but I was wondering abot the Mezuza case made from glass pieces.
Is this for outdoors in sunlight? Might be looking for trouble as the glass bits may intensify the heat and damage the MezuzaAugust 31, 2014 5:55 pm at 5:55 pm #1030267SayIDidIt™Participant
yummy, will you show up even if you don’t get an invitation? 😉
Will Gefen be getting an invite? What about the rest of your (CR) family?!
