    Location:  North Jersey
    Wedding Date:  June 19, 2005
    Colors:  I don't think a wedding needs colors/themes.  That's very Bar Mitzvah to me.  My attendants wore black and my flowers were just bright colors.
    Degree of Judiasm in your wedding (ie. frum, conservative, reform, etc):  Traditional conservative
    What do you do on Christmas:  Nothing in particular.  We've been away on vacation some years and home some years.  My husbands brother and sister are both married to non-jews and I think this year we'll have to go to his brothers house, as much as I'd rather insulate my daughter from that.

    Colors: 1st wedding: black and white with touches of red  
    wedding to DH: a coppery brown and very pale pink (my dress was the palest of pinks)

    Degree of Judiasm in your wedding (ie. frum, conservative, reform, etc):
    Cultural only (chuppah, glass breaking, hora at reception, etc.) No actual "religion."

    What do you do on Christmas: Growing up and as an adult before I got married, spent the day with my family -- the "traditional" Jewish Christmas: movie in the afternoon and Chinese food for dinner.  But DH's family is Christian so we spend Christmas day with them in a non-religious way with dinner and gift exchange (they do their church/religion thing before we get there).

    Whale, I was in Vienna one year at Christmas, traveling with friends after a study abroad semester. We were staying at a pensione type place so no hotel to get our food at and we had to eat. We ended up at a Chinese restaurant on Christmas night, even in Vienna :-)
