There is an old tradition that if the groom sees the bride before the wedding, it is bad luck. According to BridalGuide
During the time when arranged marriages were custom, the betrothed couple wasn’t allowed to see each other before the wedding at all. The wedding symbolized a business deal between two families (romantic, huh?), and a father would have been pleased for his daughter to marry a man from a rich, land-owning family. But he also feared that if the groom met the bride before the wedding and thought she wasn’t attractive, he’d call off the wedding, casting shame onto the bride and her family. Therefore, it became tradition that the bride and groom were only allowed to meet at the wedding ceremony so that the groom did not have the opportunity to change his mind. And that veil the bride wears? Its original purpose was also to keep the groom from finding out what the bride looked like until the last possible minute, when it was too late to back out of the transaction.
Mormons married in the temple pay no heed to this superstition, because the bride and groom arrive at the temple together, meet with temple staff to fill out paperwork, and then walk into the sealing room together. The father does not give away the bride as in traditional protestant or catholic weddings.
What do you think of Mormons break with tradition when it comes to weddings? Is it time for protestants to get rid of the father “giving away” the bride? Is this a sign that the bride is property of men? Are Mormon ways more egalitarian?
