I think it would look great if he wore Ivory! I would order maybe  75 and put something explaining why you wear them near it. So if non-jews want to wear them or dont understand then they could make up thier mind. Or if your Future Mother-In-Law wants everyone to wear one just make a sign saying at the request of the Bride & Groom all males please take one.

I think there was a thread about this awhile ago and the general consensus was that people often ordered too many. Maybe make a count of people who will for sure wear them and order 20 more than that? I am not sure, 50 sounds a little low. Maybe 70?

@Mrs Hedgehog: Sounds just like our wedding! I havent decided if we are going to get them yet but if we do I will most likely do signage as well.

I would count how many Jewish men you have coming, and just order a few more than that just in case.

My husband wore a different color/kind then everyone else b/c he chose to wear his grandpa’s. I thought it looked nice that he was different.

We had a Jewish wedding, but many of our guests were not jewish. Many of our friends are Christian and Muslim. Looking at our album, I noticed that almost all of our male friends wore a yarmulke, Jewish or not. I think a lot of people will “follow the herd”. If they see some people putting them on, they will follow suit. I would probably order enough for almost every male at your wedding. You can use the extras for celebrations for the rest of your lives!
