Because You Asked: My Kippah Vendor Recommendation

After yesterday’s post about using kippahs and bentschers as wedding favors, I’ve been asked if I know of a good vendor for kippahs – something good quality and easy on the wedding budget. I’m happy to tell you about the vendor I used just a few months ago for my daughters’ b’not mitzvah: Yofah. I had a great experience with them.

Yofah offers the widest selection of colors and fabrics, and the best prices, of any other kippah vendors I found. Their online system for personalizing the inside of the kippah with text in English and Hebrew is easy to use. And when the kippahs arrived, I found that the quality was very good.

Save Money, Help Save the World – Skip the Wedding Favors

Are you looking for a wedding expense to cut? Take a deep breath and read the next phrase with an open mind: skip the wedding favors. I know that favors have become a mainstay of wedding culture, but I think this is one area where we can start pushing the pendulum of consumption culture back in the direction of restraint. Less consumption is not only good budget management, it’s good planet management.

Your guests will enjoy your celebration just as well if they don’t have a trinket to take home. Some will actually appreciate not having a trinket to take home.

Mementos that arise naturally from the event carry more meaning than items that aren’t essential to the celebration. The kippot and bentschers will be more than merely trinkets in a drawer. Your guests might actually use them in their lives, and every time they do, they’ll think of you and the day they celebrated your wedding.
