And where in Williamsburg could you hold a wedding for 10,000 people?

I read this on Yahoo and could not believe it. Who would have so many people to a wedding in this day & age. Very foolish on the famiy's part. I too don't know 10,000 people I bet the wedding family will sue for not allowing the wedding to not take place. Such selfish people.

I’m also trying to figure out how you come up with 10,000 guests. A parent owns a company that employs 10,000 people and invites them all? The groom invites his entire small college? The bride is a popular influencer and invites all her followers?

I have SO many thoughts about this wedding.

The cost. Food alone would be close to a million dollars. And the drinks. I don't even want to think about that. Maybe it would be an open bar.... There's another million!

The receiving line. It would take years to get through that. Maybe they'll nod to Covid and eliminate that.

The venue both for the wedding itself and for the reception. What could possibly be big enough? Nothing says "wedding" like a sports stadium!

The mountain of gifts and the thank you notes after. Ack!

Holy cow! Can you imagine? Except people like that have assistants who write thank you notes for them.

I read through some comments on the article. It seems as though this is a grandchild of a rabbi in an Hasidic Jewish sect. Not that that makes it any better, but it’s apparently not some “influencer” with money to burn.

I should not even say this, but what could make 2020 even more frightening? 😣

Yep.....saw that yesterday....couldn't even wrap my mind around that concept!!

Meanwhile, DD25 and fiance are about to put a deposit down on a place in the UK where he is from for their April 2022 wedding. They figure they will invite about 75 and think about 55-60 will go (some US friends/family less likely to make it). That's close to 10,000, right??!!!

Little clarification

Ultra Orthodox Jewish weddings may literally invite everyone in the synagogue, surrounding neighborhood, business associates etc. Make it a rabbi's son or daughter or a member held in high esteem, everyone gets a invite. It can be considered a community event.

From the picture in the article, the man wearing the beaver hat is from the Satmar sect, and their weddings are usually huge.

Just because it says 10K invites, does everyone go? No. The ceremony maybe outdoors, where everyone can be see/hear the ceremony. The meal part, not everyone gets dinner. It opens up a little for dancing and festivities after the meal. People roll in and out during the festivities. 10K isn't there the whole time.

The NY government and the Haredi community (Ultra Orthodox) has been at each others throats over COVID-19 mandates since it started. Whatever issues are going on in small Evangelical Christian communities with lack of compliance/choice, it's the same deal here. It's a tangled mess of lacking education (Yeshivas/Day schools can leave much to be desired depending on the sect), language barriers, and not trusting the government in general.

So...the 10K info is a bit misleading, if you been only to a traditional American style wedding. Believe me, 2K worth of people gathering/milling around is bad enough. Considering how much angst/hate was stirred up during the Sukkot holiday, depending on the sect, they may just go FU and have the wedding anyway. It won't be 10K, but it sure won't be 50.

Regardless of the actual number who are going to attend this is not an event that should be happening because of restrictions. So if even only half attend that's still 5k people. Far more than is legally allowed so the article title may be misleading but it's still an event that shouldn't happen

As for the info on how they normally do things. Great info, but totally inappropriate at this time. I normally do a lot of things differently than I am now. This is a case of tradition outweighs safety for participants and surrounding comminities and is just wrong!

Yes, I know a bit about the communities, as I grew up very close to one of them. No compliance whatsoever on a daily basis. That being said it's no different than any person who is choosing to not comply with the covid restrictions in place!

this is how the Haredi community functions in New York. Many flaunt laws and regulations because they feel entitled to. One of their sub groups formed a community near where I used to live in New York state, and they do whatever they want to a ridiculous level. Currently there are flagrant violations of regulations regarding covid-19. None of this surprises me at all.

how many people were at the women's marches all over the country on Saturday? Probably more than 10,000.

Quote:
Thousands of protesters took part in women’s marches on Saturday, with a main event in Washington, D.C., and sister marches taking place across the country.

Organizers had anticipated 116,000 in-person and virtual participants. They said tens of thousands showed up at what turned out to be 438 #CountonUs marches across all 50 states.

Private eyes that is no more acceptable in my book.

My 1st post was just about the number of people invited.

The covid piece came after, but any gathering over state guidelines is wrong!
