I was wondering if there a prohibition to have food during the Chuppah? A friend told me he thinks it's not allowed.

I wanted to have something cute and small that is meaning full to us that everyone (the people siting and observing) could enjoy during the ceremony

    Interesting idea. Make sure you consult with your own rabbi before implementing ideas you see on this site. – msh210 May 30 '17 at 5:51
  • I see alot of candies being given out by thr chupah. It shuts the people up for the ceremony:) – Mennyg May 30 '17 at 8:35
  • There is food at the kabolas ponim before the ceremony and at the reception after the ceremony. It reminds me of the Rabbi at a hotel after the guests had fallen upon the kiddush like locusts who announced without a trace of irony in his voice, "lunch is served, you must be starving". – Avrohom Yitzchok May 30 '17 at 12:30
  • @msh210 Thanks, I will must definitely ask the rabbi about how he feels about this. – Moishe May 30 '17 at 12:59
  • @Mennyg That is a good point. I had not thought about that but I like it its true that will it have that effect. – Moishe May 30 '17 at 13:00
