Just Call Our Names & We’ll Be There

The #1 Jewish wedding planning blog has a new number and it’s all for you!

We are now making our toll-free hotline available to everyone so that we may assist our vendors and brides as easily as possible!

Hey brides: If you need a cantor at the last minute, you can call us! If your groom is looking to buy a new tallit, he can call us! We know people. We are Yentas after all, and we can call a friend or a reliable vendor that’s listed in our directory to make sure that all your needs are taken care of. We don’t want you to ever be left hanging because frankly, accidents happen. Let us clean up and make sure everything is as perfect as a slow-cooked brisket.

Hey vendors: You need to know information about the Yentas? Are you looking for promotion or a good ol’ fashioned thumbs up from the know-it-alls in the inner circle of Jewish weddings? We’re your go-to gals. Perhaps you want to offer your goods to our deserving readers. Just give us a call.

Sure, we’re still email-a-holics. We haven’t left the ’10s (just doesn’t have the same roll-off-the-tongue feel as “the ’90s” does it?). You can always reach us on that new-fangled Al Gore-invented Internet. However, if you want that more personal vocal interaction or you want to hear just how good we pronounce our Yiddish “ch” sounds, the phone is the way to go.

With our new number, 877-WYENTAS, it’s like we’re the matchmaker for engaged couples and wedding vendors all over the U.S.! We’re just doing our part to make the process a little easier for everyone involved.

So, dearest Brides and Vendors, here’s another fine reason to join The Wedding Yentas family. With our new hotline, this game of Telephone just got hotter!

Plus, we didn’t pay good money for nothing. Call us. Then call your mother.

Friday Favorites | Finding Love Online

One of our favorite things is hearing proposal stories! Hearing about how one of the most important questions that one could ever ask another makes us so giddy and happy! Whether it’s super romantic, adventurously public, or as big of a production as a Broadway show, we love learning about how couples agree to take the plunge!

But before a couple gets engaged, they have to meet, right? And how-we-met stories gets us even more excited! Sometimes people have known each other their whole lives through friends or families. Other times, college romance blossoms between English 101 and a fraternity party. And then there’s always the meeting in the workplace or at the bar. But with the easy access of the Internet and the mobility of technology, so many couples are meeting on dating websites.

There used to be this weird stigma that meeting online was a huge no-no or super embarrassing. Now, it seems to be common practice and has provided many great success stories. We love the idea of online dating because it gives individuals control of creating their perfect spouse. Want a guy who has at least a bachelor’s degree? Check the box! Want a girl who likes pets? Check the box! Want a guy who is taller than 5’4” and enjoys spending time at the gym? Check the box! It’s like a build-your-own-burger bar… but for partners! Technology has gotten us so far in life and civilization. Why not let it take you as far as the chuppah?

Today, Jewish singles want to find other Jewish singles and that’s why our Friday Favorites is JDate ®. The easy-to-use site allows Jewish singles to connect and take dating to the next level. Specifically looking for a Jewish partner enables discussion about loud, theatrical families, or kugel recipes, or even summer camp connections. There’s just a familiarity and a comfort in knowing that your potential husband or wife understands how to say funny Yiddish words or that deli sandwiches never shouldn’t contain mayonnaise. Dating with the aid of JDate ® helps bring Jewish people together in an effort to continue the faith and the heritage.

It’s amazing to think how many people you know have chosen the chosen ones through the convenience and help of JDate ®. Share with us! Tell us if you are a success story! Tell us if you know others who have married through JDate ®.

If you are a success story, we invite you to submit your information so that JDate ® can acknowledge you as you help inspire others who are looking for love. Who knows, you could end up on a billboard in Times Square just like Yenta Alison!

We’d love to hear your stories and how this website has brought two people who go together like rye on bread.

As we close out this monumental week in Yenta Land, we want to thank our readers and vendors for their support, and acknowledge our new partner, JDate ®. We are excited to begin this journey as we contribute stories to their online magazine, JMag ®.

Our Friday Favorites is dedicated to YOU! Happy Friday to our favorite people: our readers, our vendors, and our friends over at JDate ®!

    I have had great luck with jdate! Haven’t found the one yet but looking ;)

A PERFECT MATCH!

We are so excited to announce a new marriage!

The happy couple made their partnership official last week and are currently honeymooning… on the Internet.

Mazel tov to The Wedding Yentas and JDate ® on their brand new partnership!!

We are kvelling from head to toe to be partnering with JDate‘s ® online, open-access lifestyle magazine, JMag ®. The Wedding Yentas will be contributing articles to the magazine and educating its readers about Jewish wedding traditions, ideas to ponder, and ways to incorporate Jewish culture in a modern wedding for a mainstream couple. This is super exciting because Yenta Alison has a strong connection to JDate ® as she and her husband, Bryan, happen to be a match made by the famous and successful dating site! Alison is always telling her single friends to try JDate ® because “shopping” for a Jewish partner has never been easier!

We love JMag ® and the articles it publishes. Readers can read about such lifestyle topics as dating, keeping kosher, recipes, travel bits, JDate ® success stories, social graces, and interviews from some pretty noteworthy characters from the Jewish and pop culture worlds. And now, The Wedding Yentas will be added to the mix, as we do what we do best: gush about Jewish weddings!

The theoretical glass has been broken and now The Wedding Yentas and JDate’s JMag ® will leave the chuppah and begin a new life together! What a perfect match this is!
