No, ours is an interfaith (most Jewish) ceremony, but the Jewish part is reform anyways

OP, are you Jewish?  I find it odd that you wouldn’t know how to spell such a common word.

I’m not Jewish but we attended a wedding where the couple was Jewish. They were on the conservative side (bride wore sleeves, her groom wore traditional attire) and they provided yarmulkes for everyone. Some people (obviously the people that were actually Jewish) had their own that they wore.

@Cupcakegurl:  We aren’t. We’re just having everyone use the ones that the synagogue always has available. It just seemed like an extra cost for something that very few people would ever use again.

My Maid/Matron of Honor provided them at her wedding; she’s Reform and was married in the synagogue.  They had yarmulkes for the men and lace hairclips (not sure of the name) for the ladies.  Both were custom ordered for the wedding and matched the wedding colors.

I guess I don’t see the point if you are having a secular service and it’s not at a synagogue.  The people interested in wearing one will bring their own and the ones you provide will most likely just sit there.

it’s really not necessary if you’re not having a jewish ceremony. My sister provided them (they had a jewish ceremony married by a rabbi in a hotel). We did not provide them because we had an interfaith ceremony led by a Justice of the Peace even though we incorporated jewish elements.  We didn’t find it necssary. I’m conservative along with 1/2 our guests.  If people are orthodox, they wear them anyways. I don’t think anyone is going to be concerned about it at your interfaith wedding.

Darling Husband is Jewish, andhe wore a yarmulke, as did his dad and grandfather.  But other than that, no one did, as we were not married in a Jewish ceremony, in a synagogue, or by a rabbi.
