    There is always water for you to enjoy besides for the soda!

    Why shouldn’t they serve soup? Nothing else to discuss I guess..

    Because the people paying for the wedding want the soup served.

    Doesn’t matter to me.

    Why, because you don’t like them?

    LOl you’re right about beer mayim sodas. Some caterers have been given “permission” to supply Coke in bottles or at least Coke from a machine, if requested.

    What’s wrong with soup? Agreed that sometimes the soup isn’t good but most people do want soup at night.

    To me a wedding meal is really just my supper so of course the main deal is the entree main dish. If it tastes good who cares what it is. My fave is a good duck. 2nd would be good steak but that’s rare (pun intended). Most places have good chicken. Most of the time the side dishes are terrible, even in the good caterers places. No idea why. Best smorg, Marina Del Ray. Dessert tables depends on what you order. Anybody can order good desserts, no caterer actually makes them.

    I have’nt been to Marina in years, but I’m told the Shmorg at Ateres Avrohom is top rate.

    Abe’s place has a great smorg but nothing compares to Marina. Avrohoms has great food though and beautifully presented. I’m on a first name basis with any good food place.

    the side dishes are weird. the reason im talking about it, since the person making the simcha is paying 30-50 per plate, depending where the even is , you would think maybe they can give u decent food! beer mayim- ive never heard of anyone claiming to like it!

    Are you paying for the food? Is the person paying for the affair so incompetent that they can’t decide for themselves how much they want to pay and what food they want at the wedding? Do you have reason to think that the caterer is cheating him and that he doesn’t want the soup or “weird” side dishes?

    If not, then why are you getting involved?

    beer mayim- ive never heard of anyone claiming to like it!

    Again, that’s not the issue. The person throwing the affair wants it. When it’s your turn to have an affair, by all means, choose a different drink.

    I love the main dish by weddings and usually the entree’ as well. Now that I live in EY B”H, I dont get invited to too many weddings and the wedding standards are very different.

    Where is that “like” button? (Is that the correct saying?)

    No clue in Ivrit, but in yiddish, its refered to as the “kabbolas punim” on the womens side of the hall and the “chussin’s tish” on the mens side.

    There is no mention of food directly, but its self-understood

    Wolf, I’m not sure that you really read this post correctly. At any rate, your answer makes no sense. I guess maybe you never made a wedding. The caterer isn’t cheating anybody. You know what you’re ordering. However the caterer will suggest sides that are easiest or cheapest for him to prepare. And the baal simcha will often just take the caterers suggestions. The Beer Mayim soda isn’t usually a baal simcha’s choice. It’s governed by the rules of the caterers or halls rav hamachsir. The chasidishe rabbonim generally won’t allow anything but pure Jewish sodas. If you decide to make a simcha in Viznitz, all you’ll get is Jewish soda, no Coke. At Ateres Chaya and Ateres Chynka you can make a choice.

    No weddings yet. Several bar-mitzvahs.

    I know the caterer isn’t cheating anyone. The OP is making the case that the soda should be banned because no one likes it. My point was that unless he thinks the ba’al simcha is being taken advantage of, why is it his business to begin with what someone serves at a wedding.

    That being said, if a person really wants to serve something other than Be’er Mayim, he’s free to make his simcha at a different hall. No one is forcing him to use *that* hall.

    just eat the shmorg food, its always the best

    and ateres avrohom shmorg is the best, BP Totty!

    but seriously, are you going to the wedding for the food?

    #707909

    “how do you say “smorgasbord” in Hebrew?”

    Officially miznon but it’s more commonly referred to as a “bar” (bet raish).

    My uncle is a caterer. The reason they serve Be’er Mayim or Mayim Chayim (they are two different companies) is because thats the only thing the Mashgiach allows.

    You mean people actually go to a wedding at Marina Del Ray for something other than the food? I understand Viznitz, nobody goes there for the food. Nots ure why anybody goes there at all. I guess maybe to meet friends. Oh, choson kallah and families? Yeah I guess so, that too.

    #707913

    What is this be’er mayim chayim that all you guys are on about?

    @ Yentish… I keep getting invited to weddings on my wife’s side, and the only reason I go is the food and liquor.
