ATTIRE: Dress to impress, after all it's almost New Year's Eve! (AKA cocktail attire).
* At many Jewish weddings, it's common for the groom to begin the celebration singing and learning surrounded by his guests and family at an event known as a tisch, named for the table where the group is seated. At the same time, the bride greets guests, in a ceremony called Kabbalat Panim, which literally means greeting of the faces. Tradition says the bride has the ear of god on her wedding day, so if there are any special messages you'd like to send on high, now would be the time to tell her! It's customary for these receptions to be divided by gender, but we invite you to visit both!
