Halacha - 9 days
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question: We are IY"H making a chasunah on 24th of Av and I wanted to know if there is a heter to buy things for the Kallah during the nine days. There are sales going on now that wont be after the 9 days ( I am not sure that has any bearing on the halacha, I just wanted to give all the facts). Also I wanted to know if there is any heter to go to the dry cleaners during the 9 days for the sister of the kallah. Thank you
Answer: First of all, Mazal Tov on the upcoming Simcha.
If there will not be enough time to buy them afterwards, they may even be purchased during the week of Tisha b'Av, as per the Rema. The same would apply to the dry cleaners, though I would suspect that there is enough time during the two weeks after Tisha b'Av, in which case there is no Heter.
Even if the issue is only saving money, the Mishna Berura writes that this too is sufficient grounds to permit purchasing items.
