Most people who keep kosher know how to handle situations like this.  One friend of mine brought along her own cooking supplies for her hotel stay, and I must say, I was impressed.  She simply went to the grocery store and purchased the kosher products she needed.  You do not need to organize every meal for your guests.

I agree with Niki–don’t worry about the rest of the time.  Just because there’s not a strictly kosher, Jewish-run grocery store doesn’t mean there’s not plenty to be had at a regular grocery store.  I do most of my shopping at regular stores… 🙂

You’ve gone out of your way for the rehearsal dinner and the reception… no need to do more. They have lived like this their whole life and will be able to handle it. Just enjoy your wedding now!

I agree with the other posters. I would just let them work it out. I assume that they have been been keeping kosher for awhile now, so they are probably used to it.

If they are coming before Shabbat, they may be able to set up home hospitality with a family living near a synagogue that keeps kosher.  I know my mom hosts people coming to events at our synagogue.

I was thinking, I thought even the items used to cook the food had to be kosher – ie, stove or whatever needs to be blessed and never have been used by non-kosher foods…..how have you managed to get these things, or is the food you have ordered from them already cooked?  That would be so hard…..I am sure they have already come up with a plan?  Maybe your Fiance should talk to them?

If they want to go to services on Saturday locally, you can offer to look into hosting with a local family.  There wouldn’t be any charge – it’s just local families available to host people who keep Shabbat and are travelling.  It’s worth some quick research, I would think.  Just call any local synagogues and ask if this is something they offer.

Hi, a friend of mine just told me she ran into a similar dilemma, she said she agonised over food for them and in the end they all agreed to eat broiled salmon from ANY place.  Does anyone have experience with Kosher Overnight Vendors…What to choose?  Chicken, Beef? Fish? Brisket? How can I know what is good?
