Thinking about having our two dad's lead the Motzi. Need some input on what makes sense re timing:
Some background: We are having a "heavy hor dourve" cocktail, dancing, etc reception on a Thursday evening. I am incorporating some Jewish traditions into our ceremony/reception, one of which I would like to be the Motzi. However, the Motzi i is usually done at the start of the reception before we begin to eat/drink. So, should we have our dad's do the blessing, even though we won't necessarily have entered yet? I don't want to hold things up with the guests having to wait for us to enter before they can begin to eat, drink and mingle, but the motzi should come first... OR should we let people begin and just as soon as we enter, we will stop and have the Motzi??? I think FI and I should be there with our dads.... I hope my question isn't too confusing..
Also, trying to think of something for our moms to do...but it probably doesn't make sense to do the blessing over the candles on a Thursday evening....What other prayer might be appropriate?
