Antwerp and Wedding Rules

In an effort to keep people solvent and not have to be burdened with serious debt the Antwerp Rabbonim established and enforced rules on the amount of guests one may invite to a wedding.

The Kehilas Machzekei Hadas in Antwerp set 250-300 people as a maximum allowed to be invited to a Chasuna.

Under extenuating circumstances, if one needs to invite more than the above he must have written permission from the Mara D'asra, Hagaon Harav Shif Shlit"a.
