All this thinking about our chuppah and wedding reminded me of another project that gave our rehearsal dinner a little Jewish touch. I ordered personalized buttons from Mazel Bride and then attached them to the place cards, simple rectangle tent cards. I designed the cards with MS Publisher and printed them at home on my regular inkjet printer on Paper Source red cardstock. I got specific buttons for the Bride, Groom, Father of the Bride, Mother of the Bride, Mother of the Groom, Father of the Groom, Flower Girl, Best Man, and Maid of Honor (and maybe a few others I can’t remember.) Our out-of-town guests were invited to the dinner as well as the rest of our family so their buttons just said “Family” or “Friend”. It made for a fun way for people to introduce themselves. I think the concept would translate very well to a bar or bat mitzvah or any party with a mix of family and friends.
