i’m putting both in a basket near the entrance with a sign (and probably someone standing there) asking guests to take one.

(i also have to explain what a kippah is on the sign, since half of my guests aren’t jewish).

if no one takes them, i’ll have someone carry the baskets around once the guests are seated for the ceremony.

Our catering/venue director handled it. They had someone posted as everyone came in and made sure they got a kippa and a program. We had the kippot on the table as they walked into the ceremony room- and BOY do i have a lot left over- EEK.

I was flipping through a magazine last night and I saw an example of programs that had ribbon and were hung on the all the chairs. I was going to see if we could do that with the chairs at our venue. If not, I’m just going to have the ushers hand them out.

@jindc:

I just purchased 72 kippot from “skullcap” online, they come in packages of 12, I got 6 so it’s 72. With imprint on them in Hebrew and shipping the total was $98.45 (satin white kippot).

I am planning to put them in a nice basket in the entrance, and I know that every guy will take one because all my guests are Jewish.

 

We don’t have a program. It’s an Israeli wedding, you come, you see the Chuppa, you drink alcohol, eat and dance till you forget your name 🙂 no speeches or special dances/performances/garter toss etc etc….

We chose to have two hat boxes…one for the programs and one for the yarmulke’s.  Many of our guests were not of the Jewish faith, so we had a sign made which sat beside the hat box with the yarmulke’s.  Our programs were in another hatbox and a friend of ours handed them out.  Hope this helps!

Our ceremony is outside, overlooking the lake so there won’t be any tables or what not set up to display the programs. My younger cousins (13 & 14) are our ushers so they’ll be out there handing out the programs to each guest as they take their seats. The only other thing my cousins are doing is escorting our grandmothers and then my mom down the isle in our processional so we’ll put them to work doing a few other small things.

Here is what we did.  I got coordinating baskets from another bride, then made the signs myself.  We had them on a shelf in the vestibule as people entered.  Everyone got the idea.

@eli11:  We got our kippot (ivory satin) from Mazel Tops.  Unlike many companies, they do not have a minimum order.  Their kippot are made with more panels, so they fit better and don’t produce that “cone-head” look.  Also, I’m on a Jewish wedding message board, and everyone there who ordered from Mazel Tops had a good experience in terms of both timing and quality–something that could not be said of many other companies.  Here is one of the ones we got.
