This isn’t meant to target or hint at any hall particularly, but I feel that in general, especially here in Lakewood, we need to put a stronger emphasis on Tznius at wedding halls.
I recently attended several weddings, and it bothered me tremendously the lack of Tznius and mixing taking place at the entrances and lobbies.
I understand halls try their best and mark the men’s and women’s entrances, however, I feel more needs to be done, as Simcha goers are clearly not taking it seriously.
There’s no reason someone who is careful about Shmiras Einayim needs to be exposed to the mingling which greets him or her when entering the vicinity of the hall.
Especially during these summer months, when as is many dress questionably, it is more important to adhere to strict standards that are appropriate for a town like Lakewood.
And to all who feel a need to mingle, especially in the opposite gender’s section, please keep in mind this isn’t right, and is hurtful to those trying to keep a Frum Toradig lifestyle.
