Re: Alternate locations for an Orthodox wedding/marriage ceremony in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania #usa

Marcia,

My parents married in the rabbi's office.  This was in Brooklyn right before my Father went to The U.S. Army at the start of WW11.  After the ceremony they had a small party at my maternal grandparent's apartment.  They didn't even have any music because my paternal grandfather had recently passed away, and my maternal grandfather said music would not be appropriate.

As far as I can tell, large weddings (for most people) did not become common until the 1950's in The U.S. As with everything, I'm sure there were exceptions.

Regards,
