Kosher catering for interfaith wedding?

eiriene | Feb 25, 2007 12:36 AM

I'm a little wary to post this topic here, since I know that many Jews don't approve of interfaith marriages, but if we can all put aside our feelings on that... I'd love to get some answers.

I am Jewish and my fiancee is not. He and I have had many long talks, over the course of our relationship (going on 5 and a half years now), and he does not want to convert. I respect his wishes. We are planning to have a Jewish ceremony for the wedding, and then we will need kosher catering for the reception. We have a very limited budget and would love to find a caterer or a location+caterer, who would be willing to work with us. I'm talking about the fact that maybe we can spend $50/person, max.

We're very flexible and open to different types of options. A dessert-only reception would be fine. A dairy buffet wedding would be fine, as it would accomodate our vegetarian friends and relatives. A cocktail-only reception would be fine. Whatever will get us something nice for our wedding, food-wise; we're willing to compromise, since finances are a factor. We're willing to get married in any of the "off-season" months next year, as we know that usually brings wedding prices down.

We're located in central NJ, and we'd love to find somewhere in that area or perhaps in Staten Island. Due to elderly relatives in both of our families, traveling further into the NY area is unfeasible.

Thank you very much in advance for any help that anyone can give me.
