Erev Kippur Amida on Wedding day


A neighbor of mine mentioned she was advised in her pre-marital class to say the amida of ereb kippur with all the tachanun as a replacement for the regular weekday Shacharit amidah.

I was thinking…we don’t say tachanun when there is a Hatan in the shul. It is a happy day. Why would anyone say this amida? Isn’t it kind of backwards?

I don’t do this. I am just looking to see if there is anything behind it. I know ashkenazim fast the day of their wedding, and it may be stemmed from that. but I am asking on behalf of sephardic people.

Thank you

You make a good point.
Certainly Sephardim should stick to their customs.
